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 I have learned about how to measure with a ruler and what we might need to measure for.
I have also learned about democracy and we voted for our new committee members using a polling booth and ballot box.
I enjoyed sports day because it was a lot of a fun!!
This week I have been practising my sports day races and my sprinting!
I have also been using arrays to learn about times tables in maths – it’s getting much easier!
I’ve enjoyed getting new spelling words and playing different spelling games!
This week we were learning about informative writing and had a look at the different types of information that leaflets can tell us about. We have also been learning about the human body so we decided to choose a part of the body, research some facts using the iPads and then put this information into our leaflets. We made sure to include a clear title, some information and some pictures to match! Hopefully we can share them with others and help them learn some new information!
This week I have learned about how to do research on the iPad and show this in a leaflet!
I have also started practising the different races we will be doing on Sports Day, like a sprint, jumping, obstacle race and hurdles!
I have enjoyed doing my Big Writing this week, it was about the BFG!
This week we have been learning about what happens to our heart rate when we do exercise. We recorded our pulse beats per minute before, during and after exercise to see the effect. The harder we worked, the higher our heart rate was! This is because our heart is having to work a little bit harder. Here are some pictures of us at work!
This week I have learned about halves and quarters, this is dividing by 2 and 4!
I’ve also learned about rhythms and beats with a NYCOS teacher, we played some singing and clapping games!
This week I have enjoyed designing a ‘wanted’ poster for the evil genie in my reading book!
