Lots of new learning in MP1!
| || |
We continued our Geography learning this week by learning lots of new words. We learned different land & water forms; lots of new knowledge!!
The learners made models and maps of these different land & water forms, which you can see in our classrooms. If you want to work on this a bit more at home; have a look here: www.slideshare.net/laltmaier/land-and-water-forms-lesson-60066714
Maybe you can make some water & landforms at home!
In Year 1 we have been working about rhyme in Literacy. This was quite tricky. The children practised many games and even attempted to write their own rhyming words. Such amazing poets we have in Year 1! And look below! The seeds we planted last week are growing!
In Maths we worked on bar graphs. The learners made lots of different bar graphs by themselves. We also had a good look at them and tried to answer questions about the bar graphs. For example; which is the most popular? which is the least popular?
In Year 2 this week we have been learning about fractions. We’ve talked about fraction terms that we use in everyday life such as ‘halfway’ and ‘quarter of the way’. We are learning to shade a 1/2 and a 1/4 of different shapes. Some of us can even find 3/4 of a shape. We also know that 2/4 is the same as a 1/2! We are looking forward to finding fractions of numbers next!
In Literacy, we have been learning to write our own poems based on Lila and the Secret of Rain. We used our senses to imagine how the rain would feel, smell and what Lila and her family would be thankful for, now the rain has finally come. In partners we have used the vocabulary we generated to write our own poems using repetitive language.
