We were very excited this week as our caterpillars arrived! We had fun naming them and measured them too so we can see how quickly they grow!
We have been performing some poetry in English this week based on the poem 'Aliens Stole My Underpants' by Brian Moses. In Maths we have been making fraction flags and looking at digital time. We've also had great fun in Design & Technology using the construction equipment to build winding mechanisms. They were so great we invited Mr Hautler to come and test them out. He was very impressed!
We even had two special visitors!
We have been learning about the author Jill Murphy this week! We have looked at a selection of her books and even acted out part of 'Peace at Last'. We used lots of amazing adjectives to describe the 'Large Family' characters.
We continued our work on food chains in Science by creating some food chain masks and using them in a food chain dance. We used torches to show the transference of energy along the food chain.
