We have been looking at the great fire of London. We built houses using cardboard boxes and set them up to look like a street in London. We were surprised at how quickly the fire spread. The wind also helped by blowing the fire to the next house. We said that the people of London would be very sad to watch their houses burn.
Today we measured the playground using meter sticks.
This week we have been measuring lots of different things, including each other.
It was our turn to feed the new lambs today. We thought they drank their milk very quickly!
We have been building London out of cardboard boxes.
We had a tea party with a special visitor. We had cucumber sandwiches and cake. We learnt some songs and some games.
We had a virtual tour around Buckingham Palace. We were amazed at how big it is and how much gold there is.
We are getting ready to write some fantasy stories. This week we have created our settings and our characters.
In Maths we have been measuring water using litres and millilitres.
We have been dividing with fish, multilink and playdough.
Mrs Morris and Miss Dore love reading the squirrel’s diary entries.
Today we used materials in science to find a comfy bed for the princess. The fluffy blanket was the best because we couldn’t feel the pea!
We had a chicken in our classroom all day. We were looking after it.
We made 3D shapes today. We told Miss Dore what shapes we were going to make and some facts about them.
This week we have been looking at Handa’s Surprise. We have used our senses to help describe different fruit.
We planted cress. It has grown really quickly. We can see the roots growing through the cotton wool. They look like a little forest in a cup!
This afternoon we went outside and drew round our shadows. We talked about how the sun cannot go through solid objects and so we get shadows. We went back outside later on and noticed are shadows had moved. We discussed how the earth moves round the sun and we get night and day.
We made grass heads. We put seeds and soil in the socks. Then we had to tie the bottom of the sock. Next we made noses and stuck on eyes and mouths. We can't wait for their hair to grow!
