We are very excited to be starting our new unit Media Magic! To start the unit we first we shared what we already know about communication in our Knowledge Harvest. For our Entry Point we all dressed up to attend a movie premier! The press and paparazzi were out ready to take our photographs as we walked down the red carpet. We got to eat popcorn and enjoyed the movies.
In LITERACY we started looking at nonsense poems. We really enjoyed reading the Ning Nang Nong. There are lots of features which make it an interesting poem to read: alliteration, rhyme, repeated language ...and a lot of nonsense too!
Next week we will continue to look at poetry and start to think about making our own nonsense poems! Can you think of any nonsense words you could use?
In MATHS we have been busy using money this week. We really enjoyed making our own shops and buying and selling our supplies. We practised giving change and adding up the total cost.
Next week we are going to challenge ours by adding 3 numbers together e.g. 7 + 5 + 3 = .....
Can you spot the number bond to 10?
In LITERACY we watched this short film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWIVoW9jAOs
We retold the events in sequence and wrote some sentences about the events.
We learnt about the characters and setting of the film and made an opening sentence using interesting words like: amusing, brilliant, amazing.
Next week we are going to learn to write our opinion about the short film and finish our film reviews.
In MATHS we have been learning about 3D shapes. We have been busy constructing using straws to make skeletons of 3D shapes. We made cubes, square-based pyramids and cuboids. We talked about the properties of 3D shapes and identified faces, edges and vertices. We also looked for different objects in the classroom and sorted them into flat and curved surfaces.
Next week, we'll be doing addition. Adding using tens and units (numbers up to 50).
