This week Birch class have been learning all about emotions and finding different synonyms for frequently used words such as 'happy', 'sad' or 'angry'. Also, a chair mysteriously appeared in our classroom and we made inferences on whose chair it could be! We have started adding 2-digit numbers with Mr Greenwood and in Science we have learnt to identify some of the bones in our body!
Birch class have had a very busy week with our assessment week! We worked really hard on all of our assessments and made sure to do the best we could! Whilst it was a full on week we always made sure to have a bit of fun during play time, story time and even had some golden time!
This week we continued with our Lost Words book, readying ourselves for writing a poem by researching a bird on our Chromebooks and writing a fact file. We then used these fact files to create our own poems about our chosen birds! To go with our poems we explored the different types of shading we could used and spent a long time drawing out our own birds to go along with our poem. In Maths with Mr Greenwood we worked on placing numbers on a number line to 100 and ordering 2-digit numbers.
This week we started our whole class book, The Lost Words, a book all about nature which describes different animals and plants through poetry and art. As a class we focussed on the birds in the book. We discussed how to use adjectives to describe to help with writing our own poems. We then went out to our forest school area and went bird watching! It was lots of fun! We also enjoyed working with Mr Greenwood in Maths this week.
Today we started our first week in year 3! We had lots of fun seeing our friends again, getting to know each other and having a new classroom! We had fun outside playing socially distanced games and learning to log into our very own Chromebooks!
