MP1 were very excited to start our new unit From A to B this week. Our new unit is all about transport and travel. We began with our knowledge harvest: thinking about the different types of transport we know already. Some can fly through the air whilst others can float on water. What types of transport can you think of?
For our entry point we brought our own bikes, scooters, skateboards, roller skates etc. into school and practised our safety rules in the playground. We can't wait to learn more about transport! Yippee!
In LITERACY continued our learning based on the story Mama Panya's Pancakes. We learnt lots new words we could use instead of 'said' and shared them with our friends; whispered, shouted, asked, cried, snarled, groaned, moaned and many more. Next, we began to write our own version of the story thinking about our home country and our favourite food. These stories made us very hungry.
In MATHS we have learning about 3D shapes. We used our prior knowledge to recap the different shape names and then began looking more closely at the properties of 3D shapes: faces, edges and vertices. What 3D shapes do you know?
In LITERACY we listened to the story of Rumplestiltskin and tried acting it out in our teams.We also tried re-telling the story using actions. We have started drawing our storyboards. Let's see how we will write up the story of Rumplestiltskin next week!.
In MATHS we introduced subtraction and practised subtracting 2 digit numbers without regrouping. We used our bank stamp tiles to understand what it means to subtract. We also practised adding 2 digit numbers with regrouping. We enjoyed practising our addition and subtraction skills using the bank stamp tiles.
