A new term, a new class, a new key stage and an exciting year ahead of us. Mrs Watson and I are looking forward to sharing your child's learning journey with them and supporting them in all areas of the curriculum
During the year we will be sharing our learning on the Giraffe Class page and hope that you enjoy reading all about it. Watch this space......!
In Art this term we are learning about different artists and the techniques they specialise in. Linking with our Geography topic 'Oceans & Continents' we will be looking at a specific style of art from each of the continents. This week we have produced African Silhouette pictures.
Giraffes have started to think about Remembrance Sunday and the significance of wearing Poppies. To support their learning the children have made their own poppies to share with family and friends.
Giraffe Class have been remembering Benjamin George Flanders. He was a mechanic 2nd class in the Royal Air Force and lost his life while servicing and repairing planes at RAF Duxford during the 1st World War.
We are very proud of the poppies we have made.
In Literacy we have been using adjectives, adverbs and verbs to create poems about Autumn.
Maths has been all about Multiplication.
With Christmas nearly here we have been reading Dear Father Christmas to help learn how to write the perfect letter.........fingers crossed it works!
The children had to remember to write in the correct tense, use powerful verbs and a range of different personal pronouns.
This week in Literacy we are using the text 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' to support our instruction writing. We have learnt that we need to include imperative (bossy) verbs, prepositions, adverbs and adjectives...........wow that's a lot to remember!
We started the week by washing some very dirty toys, we had to imagine they were woolly mammoths as Mrs Hogben could find any of them! Talking about what we had to do helped us identify and use different imperative verbs like scrub, rinse, buff, polish, soak and lather.
