# Week beginning 2nd December

In PE, we re-did our assessment to find out how much our fitness has improved.

This week, we had our Christmas Craft Fair.

In maths, we did our 3D shape assessment.

We did experiments about taste and smell. We tasted lemon, sugar, coffee and salt to find out if they were sweet, salty, bitter or sour. We smelled peppermint, cinnamon  and coffee. We had to smell and taste 3 different coloured liquids – it turned out, they were all water.

# Week beginning 25th November

In topic, we did an experiment about sight and sound where we had to look through a coloured tube and shake bottles to guess what was inside.

We learned the last part of our dance for the Christmas show and practised it on stage.

We wrote about similarities and differences between ourselves and a friend. We were focussing on using punctuation and conjunctions.

In PE, we’ve been working on our fitness – setting ourselves goals and trying to achieve or beat them.

# Week beginning 21.10.19

This week, we have been learning about the brain. We know that you can’t survive on your own without your brain. Your brain has 2 sides (hemispheres). The right side controls the left side of your body and the left side controls the right side of your body. Your brain is in charge of all the parts of your body.

We have been doing some addition. We learned how to partition numbers e.g. 33 would be 30 and 3.
