IPC Learning Journey
In SCIENCE this week we investigated how some materials reflect light whilst others do not. First we looked at the different properties of materials. Some can be soft, hard, bendy, rough, smooth, shiny or dull. We learnt that some materials; like glass, are transparent but others are opaque; like cardboard. Did you know some materials are translucent? This means light travels through the material but you can't see clearly through. We used our torches to help us sort the reflective materials from the non-reflective materials. Can you find any reflective materials at home?
This week in LITERACY we have continued our learning on nonfiction texts. We were super enquirers and researched lots of fascinating facts about nocturnal animals. Next week we will use our new knowledge of nocturnal animals to write our own non-fiction books. We can't wait to get started!
In MATHS we have been learning all about fractions. We found halves and quarters of different shapes. We learnt that 2 halves make one whole. We also practised sequencing numbers in 2s, 5s, and 10s.
In LITERACY we have been practising to find information about nocturnal animals in fact sheets.
We made notes about the things we found and we learned lots about what certain nocturnal animals eat, how they look like and where they live.
We practised our writing skills by changing our notes into complete sentences. That was tricky, we probably need some more time to practise writing reports about nocturnal animals next week!
In MATHS we have been learning about the position of things in relation to other things, so, “above”, “behind”, “in between”, “next to”, and so on. These ideas quickly developed into concepts of direction and movement, often in the context of giving instructions to get from one place to another. We explored positional language through games to consolidate our understanding.
