We continued looking at our local environment this week in geography. In our classes we took a short walk to iCAN Play and round to Aeon Mall before heading back to school. On our journey we tried to spot different landmarks e.g. dentist, hairdressers, bank etc. As we went by we noted each landmark on our maps. Once back at school we then designed our our key with symbols to represent each of the sites on our map.
In LITERACY we have been learning about non fiction text. We recapped the features of information text and practised making our own glossary; remembering alphabetical order and definitions. We have got much better with practice.
In MATHS we have continued our learning on sharing and division. We are getting really good at sharing objects into groups of 2, 3, 4, and 5. We discovered some objects can be shared equally whilst others can not. These are called remainders.
In LITERACY we listened to Mr Phil tell the story of The Elves and The Shoemaker. We then retold the story using expression and actions.
In MATHS we listed different kinds of transportation used to travel to school. We then used the information to make tally charts and represented it as pictograms and block graphs. Next, we used the created pictograms and block graphs to answer questions. It was interesting to find out how our friends travelled to school and generally it was by car!
