We went outside to visit our tree today. The weather was sunny, but very crisp and cold. Before we went outside we reminded ourselves of what our tree had looking like back in the Autumn. We looked at photographs and our own drawings of the our tree back then.
"The ground looks really colourful, there are red, brown and orange leaves everywhere!" said Bella.
When we got outside we were very surprised to find how bare and lifeless our tree looked. The colourful leaves that were on the ground had all turned brown, it was not a very colourful sight at all!
"There are no colourful leaves, only brown ones!" said Logan
"There is nothing on the tree at all!" said Thomas
I wonder what our tree will look like when we visit it again in Spring?
We have started our longitudinal study in Science. Today we went for a lovely Autumn walk and found Mrs Jerome's favourite tree. We looked closely at the tree and talked about what we noticed. Here is a picture of our tree, we will keep looking at it over the year to see how it changes. Children, maybe you could talk to your grown-ups about Autumn and pick a tree in your garden or in the park that you could watch over the year.
Children in Need November 2017
What a 'Pudseylicious' day we've had in school today. I feel that I need to congratulate our wonderful parents for the fantastic make-up, hair and all round effort that you've made for Children in Need today. The children looked fantastic! In school we've used Pudsey Bear to help us with our learning. We've written a character description of Pudsey in English, using some great adjectives and we've been helping Pudsey to add using number lines in maths.
Wow! We were very busy last half term with our learning. We enjoyed our topic “The Scarecrows Wedding” and participated in lots of different activities which helped us to learn.
In English we wrote questions to Harry and then got the chance to ask him our questions. His answers helped us to write a character profile for him.
We also learnt the story using actions and then wrote it in our own words remembering our capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and adjectives.
In Science we learnt lots about materials and how to describe their properties. We used our understanding to help solve lots of problems for the Scarecrows.
In Maths we did lots of learning about place value and became much more confident at using the words tens, units, ones, more, less.
Try telling your adult what you know about the number 12.
What about the number 22?
What is the same / different about the two numbers?
This half term we have started our new topic Shine bright. As part of this topic we are looking at the story ‘Can’t you sleep Little Bear?’ So far we have made bear hats to help us write in the character of Little Bear using the pronoun I. We have learnt how to change verbs into the past tense by adding the suffix ‘ed’.
Try and tell your adult what these verbs would be in the past tense.
jump, cook, look, climb
You are amazing! Keep up the good work.
