What a busy week! The children are thoroughly enjoying our new dinosaur topic – some of them are real experts! This week in literacy we have been focussing on the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The children found out lots of facts about this dinosaur and they wrote some great sentences. They also presented their findings using ‘Text ease’ on the laptops. The dinosaur area in 1GJ is very popular – they have done some super detailed drawings of dinosaurs.
In maths we have been learning all about place value and the children have been looking at numbers and partitioning them into hundreds, tens and units a number has. For example 152 is made from 100, 50 and 2.
We have begun our art focus in our curriculum sessions. This week the children have been ‘Art Gallery Managers’ – they looked at and discussed many different pieces of art and talked about what they liked and disliked them. Each child chose a piece of art that they would display in an art gallery. They also sorted the art work into different styles, such as portraits, installations, printing and collage. Your child should have brought home a letter about our trip to Leeds City Art Gallery – we hope some parents will be able to join us on our visit.
Have a great weekend.
