We made close observational drawings of rocks by colour mixing and matching.
The nursery children have been enjoying the story of The Gingerbread Man.
In Art, we have been studying the work of William Morris.
We looked at his designs, analysing the patterns, colours and subjects.
We then used a viewfinder to isolate an area for us to sketch.
This week in Maths we have been learning about capacity. We have been comparing different containers and predicting which one holds more and which one holds less. We then used a measuring jug and read the scale to see exact measurements.
Play the game below to practise reading the scale:
Have a look in your house for containers (they can be full or empty) with different measurements on them. Can you find any with ml and any with l? What does the ml and l mean?
Try putting them in order from the least to most capacity.
We took in a birds eye view of London on the Greenwich Air Line!
This afternoon, we read our fantastic stories to Nursery!
Nursery, you were such great listeners. We hope you liked our stories.
Well done, storytellers!
This term we have been exploring using clay. So far we have seen what we can do with clay (pull, pinch, squash, roll etc) and made 3D shapes out of clay. We have also carefully sketched birds which we will use when we make our clay models of birds.
Today we have been talking about the texture and patterns that we saw on the models of the birds that we drew. We then used different items from around the classroom to create texture and patterns in the clay. Can you remember what you used? Which item made the texture look like bird feathers?
This term, in P.E., we will be learning how to play volleyball. We are using balloons to build our passing and spiking skills. Sitting on our bottoms to play might seem odd but it really helped us think strategically and work as a team.
This week in PE, we have learned three dance steps and we have worked in teams to create a routine that represents a London landmark. We were able to use our knowledge about gymnastics. We had to put all our moves together so that they would match the song. Also, we were very creative with our moves and we worked hard to make sure we were all synchronized.
At the end of the lesson, we performed with our teams for the class and they had to guess the landmark we chose to represent. It was so much fun and we were all not only great dancers, but also a good audience!
Performing was one of the hardest parts of the lesson, but we all felt so happy and proud of ourselves after we did it 🙂
