IPC Learning Journey
We couldn't wait to carry on our GEOGRAPHY learning! To start with, we used our prior knowledge and remembered lots of famous landmarks from New York City. This really helped us plan our 3D maps. First, we had to come to a consensus in our teams. This took a lot of cooperation! We had lots of ideas for our maps. We then made a 2D plan before getting busy (and a little messy) making our 3D maps inspired by New York City. We've put in a lot of effort and our maps should be ready next week. We can't wait to show you the finished result.
In LITERACY we enjoyed sharing our recount of the holidays. We had lots of exciting news and it was great to hear what our friends had been up to as well. We wanted to make our recounts as interesting as possible so we planned to use some key features to help us: time connectives helped us to sequence the events correctly e.g. First, Next, Then, After, Finally. Wow words made our recounts more exciting and reflecting on our feelings helped us to add more detail.
In MATHS we have been telling the time to the half hour. We even matched analogue and digital times. To help practise these skills for telling the time we played lots of games. Why not try this game at home...
In LITERACY we continued our learning on traditional stories. We looked at the setting of Little Red Riding Hood and came up with some interesting adjectives. We wrote questions using the correct punctuation and created some detailed narrative. If you met the wolf what would you ask him?
In MATHS we worked on numbers and place value. We started by marking 2-digit numbers on a landmarked line. We compared numbers using the symbols for greater than and lesser than < and > and used our knowledge to order numbers and properties of number (e.g. odd/even). We rounded 2-digit numbers to the nearest multiple of ten. Finally we consolidated our learning by doing a lot of group activities to help us understand.
