Hello, it has been a very short week, however we have managed to fit a lot in!
Rachel from Dogs Trust came to visit us on Thursday with her dog (don’t worry it wasn’t real!) She taught us about what dogs need to be happy and healthy and answered all of our questions about her job. We enjoyed learning how to budget for a dog. We had to decide which dog we would like and picked dog products which suited our chosen dog. Each item had a price which we had to add up. We couldn’t believe how much money our dogs would cost us to look after them for just one year – the amount ranged from £750 – over a thousand pounds!!
In maths we are continuing to learn about the properties of 2D shapes – we focused on the circle. We learned about the names of each part of a circle and were very good at the circle quiz! In numeracy we have continued to look at place value to a million and beyond – this has included rounding, estimating, decimals and much more!
With Ms Fox we have started to create our Japanese masks which we have been planning and practising for. These masks will be unique as we have made up our own special patterns inspired by Japanese culture. Look out for them around the school over the next couple of weeks!
In literacy we learned about a special poem which originates from Japan called a Haiku. It is a special poem which is only 3 lines long! It also follows a rule where the first line contains 5 syllables, the second line contains 7 syllables and the third line has 5 syllables. These poems are normally about nature, seasons and feelings about these. We drew fabulous pictures in the background of our poems to go with our wonderful writing.
