Over this half term we have been closely observing our bean plants, watching the stem, leaves and roots appearing and growing and recording our findings in our bean diaries. Lots of our beans have now reached the castle at the top!
Today we learnt that there are two main types of trees. These are known as deciduous trees and evergreen trees. Evergreen trees are green all year round and usually have small, narrow, thick and waxy leaves. A deciduous tree has leaves which change colour and they lose their leaves in the winter.
We went on a tree hunt around our school grounds to look at the two main types of trees. We had lots of fun playing in the brown and orange autumn leaves that had fallen off of the deciduous trees!
We also found daisies, dandelions, poppies and wild mushrooms.
This week in Topic we have been learning about the different parts of a castle. After learning about why castles have arrow loops in the stone walls, we had a brilliant time defending our imaginary castle and learning how to shoot arrows.
Thank you to one of our friends who has taught us a fantastic song to help us to remember our number bonds that she learnt at home.
Please find the link below if you too would like to practise it at home.
Today we took part in the Northants Sports Athletics Competition. We participated in 5 events (the speed bounce, the vertical jump, the long jump, shuttle runs and beanbag throw) and had lots of fun.
Today we looked closely at some violas. We identified the flowers, roots, stem and leaves and learnt that each part of the plant has its own special job to help to keep the plant healthy.
Today we were problem solvers! We used lots of different practical apparatus and representations of numbers to identify number bonds to 10. We worked really hard at each station to find as many different number sentences for number bonds to 10 as we could and recorded them on our whiteboards.
