Using the Charanga Website, Glockenspiel Stage 1 the children played along to the tunes Play Your Music, Drive and Strictly D. They had to read formal notation and learnt the notes E and D. In addition they found those notes on their glockenspiel and played them at the correct time.
This half term we have continued our work studying fables and using them as a base for our writing. We looked at using inverted commas and speech punctuation and we tried to include direct speech in our rewriting of fables. We have looked at main clauses and subordinate clauses. We have identified them and we are beginning to use interesting subordinating conjunctions in our own work. We used our knowledge of the key features of fables to write our own fable.
This half term we have been looking at addition and subtraction. We have used our skills to add and subtract two 3 digit numbers. We have learned how to do this both with and without regrouping. We have also been improving our quick recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We have enjoyed practising our arithmetic skills through puzzles and games.
This term we have continued to look at rocks and soils. We studied how soil is formed and how important it is for all living things on the planet. We studied soil samples to find living, non-living and never living substances. We also carried out experiments to see which types of soil were the most permeable.
This half term we have been continued learning about The Titanic. We looked at how the Titanic was built, the facilities on board and the events that led up to the terrible disaster. We have studied primary and secondary sources of information and discussed the differences between them.
We have continued studying climates around the world. We have used rainfall charts and maps showing physical features to identify a connection between physical features and rainfall. We have also studied maps and temperature charts to see if there is a connection between the location of a country and its climate.
We have been learning about safety. We have looked at how important passwords are, how to make passwords secure and how to stay safe on the internet. We used Purple Mash’s 2connect tool to make flow charts.
We made our own pop-up Christmas cards. At first, we researched different types of pop up cards and then we made prototypes to practise the techniques involved. It was very tricky1 Then we came up with our own design and made them.
We have continued learning the skills involved in invasion games and throwing and catching techniques. We had a dance coach come in and teach us street dance.
