    WALT Understand biographies.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have started our English learning this term by learning all about a new text type, biographies. The children have been learning about what a biography is and what features it may contain such as titles, subheadings, photos and captions. We've looked closely at paragraphs and today went on the bus to see if we could find any more biographies. Perhaps you could challenge them to do this too using your bookshelves at home or at the library?

    Our first maths lessons.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    It has been great to get in the swing of things and start our first maths lessons this week. So far we have learnt how to read and write numbers, partition numbers into tens and ones and represent numbers using dienes. This is a pictures of some dienes, see if your child can tell you what number it represents?

    WALT Create an avatar.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    This afternoon the children used 2Simple to create their own avatars. It was quite tricky logging on and typing in websites but the children tried very hard and were extremely patient when things didn't go as planned. Do you think you can guess who created this personal avatar?

    The Sun

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have been thinking about why Australia has seasons at different times of the year than us. This has led us to lots of interesting learning about the sun. We have been learning to observe how shadows move throughout the day, that the Earth takes one day to spin on its axis. We have learnt why we have seasons and why there is different weather in different parts of the world. It has been really interesting and the children have shown great curiosity.

    The children showed amazing team work this week by solving lots of measurement problems. I observed excellent communication and sharing. We focused on length and height on Monday and will be doing lots on capacity/ volume tomorrow.

    The Woods

    The children had a lovely play in the woods today. They explored a den and tunnel they found, there was lots of imaginative play and some children decided to create beautiful pictures using natural materials. (This is a bunny.)

    WALT Add different media to our art.

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    In geography, we have been looking at physical and human features of Australia. They have described and labelled the beautiful physical features such as rainforests and mountains and created a map full of drawings of human features. We then used this knowledge to add details to our large art work using pastels and collage. The results look amazing, the children did so well.
