What do you want to do when you grow up?
IPC Learning Journey
MP1 have been busy enquirers this week investigating how plants grow. We planned, predicted and set out several experiments to see what happens when seeds or plants have no water or light? Will they grow?? Will they die?? Will they stay healthy?? We discussed what makes a test fair and tried our best to only change one thing in each experiment. This way we will know our results will be accurate. We are very interested to find out the results next week.
We also wanted to find out how plants drink water - do they suck it up like a straw? Here are some photos to show you what happened. Don't forget to take a look at how our beans are doing. They've grown so much already!
In LITERACY we have been planning and designing our own non-fiction books all about bees. We have done a lot of research to gain new knowledge about bees, we watched short videos, we read information about bees and learnt lots of new vocabulary! After this, we started thinking about a title and we made a front cover including a picture and the author for our own non-fiction books. We have a lot more things on our toolkit to put in the non-fiction books; like headings and illustrations with labels. But we’ll work on that next week!
In MATHS we have continued our good learning on number lines; using the number line to help with subtraction. We are now confident at using a number line to work out addition and subtraction questions.
In LITERACY we have been asking Lila and the other characters lots of questions. We also thought about how the other characters felt in the story. We tried to write the story again from the viewpoint of one of these characters e.g. the sun, sky, crops or cows etc. We used lots of interesting adjectives like exhausted, starving and lonely.
In MATHS we continued our learning on measures. This week we focused on mass and capacity. We used scales to find out the mass of different objects using grams (g) and kilograms (kg). To measure the capacity means to measure how much something can hold e.g. a glass filled with water or an empty bucket. We looked closely at the units of measure on the side of a measuring jug; millilitres (ml) and litres (l) and used these to help us find the capacity of different containers.
