Spring Term

Maths
We went on a 3D shape hunt around school! We searched for 3D shapes and took pictures of what we had found.
Maths
We also sorted out shopping items according to their 3D shape! 
This was TRICKY because the 3D shapes came in all different shapes and sizes.
Computing - Information Literacy 
We have been learning about how to research information. We worked in groups and thought about lots of ways we could find information out. We wrote them down on a whiteboard. Miss Gardner then showed us how to safely use the internet to research.
PE - Gymnastics with Miss Dobson
Geography
 Today we started our Geography topic with Miss Gardner about the United Kingdom. She asked us what we already knew about the United Kingdom. Here are our thoughts...
Reading
Today we have been visualising the story. Miss Gardner read us a page of the story and we had to use our imaginations to think what it would look like. 
 
RE - Sikhism
Today we went to the Gurdwara Singh Sabha, in Bradford to learn all about Sikhism. 
We met a lady called Manjit who told us all interesting facts about Sikhism. We also looked at lots of Sikh artefacts and learnt about the importance of the 5 Ks.
Geography - United Kingdom

This half term we are learning about the United Kingdom in Geography. Today we used atlases for the first time and discovered the four countries which mae up the United Kingdom. 
English - Phase 2
We created some excellent freeze frames during our English lessons today. We also did some thought tracking too.
Our morning task was to write about our favourite part of the story ' Katie in London'. We had to make sure we used our capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 
In English we have been searching for nouns. A noun is a name of a place, thing or person. We used our story of 'Katie in London' to find as many nouns as we could. 
Miss Gardner set us a challenge! 
Geography
Using our geography skills and comparing the city and the country side using aerial photographs.
Safer Internet Day
Today we have been working hard and learning about how to stay safe on the internet.
We worked in groups and discussed what we thought the story would be about using the pictures to help us. We predicted what was going to happen in the story too.
We discussed who we can trust and created a poster.
We pretended to be the chick and wrote a letter apologising to Mr and Mrs Farmer.  We gave them advice about how to stay safe on the internet.  
Computing
We collected data and created a pictogram of 1G's favourite pets.  We used purple mash to make our pictogram. 
Art - Whose skin?
We have been busy in Art with Mrs Marsden. We have been looking carefully at detail and pattern. We have been guessing whose animal skin is whose and carefully copying the patterns. 
Maths - Base 10
We have been working practically in Maths using base 10. We have been looking closely at 10s and 1s and working out the value of a number.
Friday Morning Reading with our Parents 
Out of Africa
We loved making our African animal collages with Mrs Marsden.
Fiction and Non-Fiction
We have been exploring the difference between non-fiction and fiction texts. We had to look at the features in lots of books and decide which hoop they went into. 
Computing- Algorithms 
We followed an algorithm and drew a monster. Miss Gardner's instructions were not very clear so they all looked different. 
We discussed what we needed to do to make a clear algorithm.
Mia said ' To put more detail and information in'
We did it again and then tested Mrs Carter and she got it correct.

Our Visit to Holy Trinity Church
Today we walked down to Holy Trinity Church to see Reverend Jim. He told us all about the special features of the Church. We learnt about the lectern,font,alter and stained glass windows. We also learnt all about the special days that take place in the church too. 
 
Science - Hands on learning!
We have been busy planting and growing broad beans this half term.
We have made sure they have had water and sunlight everyday.

We have measured our plants using a ruler and some of our plants have grown more than 30cm!
