Today in gymnastics, we have been looking at performing different shapes. The shapes we have been looking at are dish, front supported arch, straddle, pencil, straight and star. Have a look below to see the children performing the different shapes.
In art this half term, we have been looking at painting. Today's lesson, we looked at using appropriate brushes to paint different parts of a picture. To show this, the children had to paint different circles that were a range of sizes. To complete the task, the children had to use the correct brush size in order to paint each circle carefully so they didn't go beyond the lines. We discussed thicker brushes would be better for larger parts and thinner brushes would be better for edges and smaller parts of the picture. The children were really good at this and they all tried their best to choose the correct brush to make sure their painting was nice and neat. Have a look below to see them at work.
Last week, we begun looking at odd and even numbers. We first looked at what made an odd and even number and then using numicon we split the numbers into odd and even numbers. Whilst doing this, we recognised the differences between odd and even numbers and that there is a pattern of odd, even, odd then even when sorting numbers into the right group. We also looked at numbers beyond ten and realised that if 2 was an even number, 12 would be too. This helped us to identify whether larger numbers were odd or even. Have a look below to see our sorting.
This half term in computing, we are looking at giving a range of commands to Bee-bots. We first looked at what a robot is and what type of instructions we can give a Bee-bot. Then, the children were given directional instructions that they had to give to the Bee-bot and then they had to predict/say where the Bee-bot would end up. The children have really enjoyed using the Bee-bots. Have a look below to see them having a go.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
