Today in computing we learnt about our digital 5 a day! 5 things we should try to include to make accessing technology balanced and healthy. The digital 5 a day includes connect, be active, get creative, give to others and be mindful.
We used the ipads and class smart board to practice all of these. First we got active and did an exercise video on the smart board. Next we connected and took pictures of each other, we then got creative on a drawing app and made some art, next we gave to others by recording our voices and last we talked about being mindful about how much screen time is a good amount.
Today we did our final nativity performance. We have worked so incredibly hard to put on the best show we could. We are very proud of our work. We hope everyone enjoyed the show and want to thank everyone for coming to watch us.
In topic we are learning about the history of toys. We have looked at modern toys and toys our parents, grandparents and great grandparents would have played with. Today we we're very lucky as we got to look and have a play with even older toys. We noticed that most of the toys were made from wood and were quite simple but still fun to play with.
We all tried our best to be gentle and make sure to look after each toy we got to try.
We worked together as a class to all make part of a Christmas tree to decorate our classroom door. We also all made our own Christmas stockings to hang up in the window.
Today we did a class science experiment to find out if the materials we have been learning about float of sink. We were pretty good at predicting what most materials would do however, we did get a couple of surprises.
We have been reading the story Dinosaurs in the Supermarket, a book we have very much enjoyed. We've also used it as motivation for our writing lessons where we've been learning to add the suffix -ing on to words.
To finish off our week of writing we re-wrote the story in our own words, look at some of our incredible writing!
This week we have learnt about Remembrance Day and why we wear poppies. We learnt that it is all about paying our respects to soldiers who have fought to keep us safe. We also learnt about where all the money goes that we spend on poppies.
On Friday we took part in a special assembly, we listened to a poem and held a two minute silence. In the afternoon we all made our own poppies.
Our art unit of work this half term has been on printing. We have spent weeks practicing different techniques using different resources carefully, and evaluating them. Today was time to complete our final art piece, we used sponges to print the wood effect for the tree trunk and branches. Then we used real leaves and deferent autumn colours to finish it off.
They turned out amazing!
This week our writing has been focused on a little alien called Beegu. We have been practicing all week using adjectives to describe Beegu's appearance so that we can make a lost poster to help her get back home!
Today after all our panning it was time to make our posters. We all carefully wrote out sentences to describe Beegus appearance in our neatest handwriting. We then carefully drew a picture of her.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
