Today, some of the children went to Lochend Park to release the frogs into the loch. We have looked after the tadpoles and watched them transform into frogs over many weeks. Whilst we were at the park we also saw some cygnets and swans and enjoyed feeding all the birds.
We also loved performing at the Garden Party! We have been singing our French songs all week long 😀
This week we had lots of fun with NYCOS, we learned all about rhythm using a parachute! We had to move the parachute up and down following the rhythm of a song and then move places if our number was called out. It was really helpful having a fun way to remember what the words rhythm and beat mean!
This week we have been busy writing stories, working independently on maths, using the different strategies we have learned this year, and adding lots of detail to our drawings.
Maths – it was really good doing cheating with tens. If the last digit of a number was 8 or 9 you could add or take-away 10 then add or take-away the difference. Having 30 to do was a lot of work but fun. (Miller)
We were doing near doubles which was good and we learned a new game using dice. (Cammy)
PE – we got to choose what we would like to do, like rounders, basketball, football, tennis, parachutes or hula hoops. We all played a parachute game together at the beginning. It was a cool game. I liked it. (Lainey)
Literacy – it was good writing the sentences and having to add the speech marks to them. (Ella)
Art – drawing the pictures was good. Everyone got to choose their own things to draw and drew lots of people in the park or beach. You could add people on swings or walking dogs. Or the ocean and an ice cream van. We had to add lots of detail. We have so much detail we still need to finish them. (Charlotte)
The week we saw The hobbit and the p1s were scared of Gollum.We enjoyed it. Harrys favourite character was Bildo Bagins. Ella’s favourite character was Gandalf.We give it a 9.5 out of 10.
We enjoyed watching Tom and Jerry.We think it’s really funny. We both prefer Jerry because he is funny and really fast.we give it a 100 out of 10.
Our favourite lesson this week was circle time.We Played liar liar. The rules on how you play are simple.You do something eg eating food then the person beside you will ask what your doing.You tell them a lie.eg I am sky diving.we give it a 10 out of 10.
