Greys class 8th February
Date: 7th Feb 2019 @ 8:34pm
We have had another busy week in Greys class following our snow day.
Maths has been very practical this week with lots of weighing. The Year 1s have been comparing items that are heavier and lighter and then using cubes to measure weights of different items and ordering from the lightest to the heaviest. The Year 2s began by weighing different tins of food using grams and then reading amounts in grams and kilograms. We then moved on to telling the time to the half and quarter hours.
In Literacy we read The Snowglobe Family and wrote a description of what it would be like to live in a snowglobe. We used adjectives and interesting verbs, many of us using our memories of Friday's snow day to help us create a more realistic picture. We then began our new non-fiction topic and practised labelling an elephant and describing what it uses its different body parts for.
We made biscuits on Thursday and had a 100% success rate of everybody liking them! What an achievement that was! Please find the recipe should any of you wish to experiment at home by adding different flavours to them. http://archive.foodafactoflife.org.uk/attachments/3c7ce6d4-f504-456af3c13434.pdf
We learned all about the Union flag and drew our own copies.
We also listened to the story of why people celebrate Chinese New Year and watched a video of how families celebrate it. We then created our own dragon masks in Art.
In Phonics the Year 1s have been looking at the alternative ear sound and ch/sh whilst the Year 2s have been looking at the spelling of theu sound as o.
We enjoyed singing our Thankfulness medley in Church on Wednesday and thank you to all those who came to support us.
Our first trip of next term will be on Tuesday 26th February where we will be taking part in a Materials workshop at the River and Rowing Museum. Should you wish to help on this trip or any future trips please let Mrs Hawkins know.
Show and Tell next week is the Queen and the 1950s.
