IPC Learning Journey
MP1 have been finding out all about journeys as we started our geography learning this week. Lots of us went on a journey over the Khmer New Year break. We plotted our trips on a map and started to think in more detail about our journeys; how long did it take? What mode of transport did we use? Did we pass any other countries along the way?
We also began reading about Zeraffa Giraffa. She went on a very long journey! We're excited to find out about all the different places she visited next week.
In LITERACY Year 1 wrote a recount this week. We know some features of recounts; like chronological order, past tense, writing in the first person and time connectives. Lots of us remembered time-connectives from learning earlier this year; first, next, then, later, finally.
The we had lots of opportunities to talk about events in the past. Some of us chose to write about the Khmer New Year holiday last week and others wrote about International Day! Some even included exciting adjectives in their writing, too. What a great way of sharing our experiences!
In MATHS we have been learning about coordinates. We went on a treasure hunt and successfully found buried treasure using our coordinate skills.
In LITERACY we have been reading A Midsummer Night's Dream, based on the play by William Shakespeare. We looked closely at the characters, particularly Oberon and Titania; king and queen of the fairies. We explored lots of new adventurous adjectives to create mysterious, magical descriptions.
This week in MATHS we have been learning how to measure capacity. We have been practising reading different scales and have even made our own potion recipes by mixing different measures of coloured water. We also looked at mass; this means how heavy an object is. We weighed different objects and tried to predict which would be heavier/lighter than 1kg.
