A busy start to 2018!

In literacy we have been exploring winter poems. We have read lots of poems and the children have written their own weather poems focusing on nouns, adjectives and verbs. Some children were even introduced to adverbs. In our handwriting lesson we have started to join up our cursive writing – we practised joining ch, sh and th.
In maths the children have completed the end of autumn term assessments. Some children answered the questions independently and others worked in small groups, with support, working through their ‘special booklet’.
We have been thinking scientifically during our science lessons. We carried out an investigation using ice. The children had to decide where the ice would melt the quickest – inside or outside? And if a jacket around the ice would keep it from melting? This is the picture we used to stimulate our investigation. The children helped plan the investigation and made sure it was a fair test.
The children were amazed by the results as lots of their predictions were incorrect. Can your child explain what happened? Yes, the coat acted as an insulator and insulators keep cold things cold and hot things hot. So don’t forget to wrap your snowman in a jacket if it snows again!
Have a super weekend.
