Here is what we have been learning this week:

Maths and Numeracy

We have been matching digital clocks to analogue clocks, we were matching up quarter past, half past and quarter to.

We have been playing a game called STOP THE CLOCK to help us with this. Our class personal best time is 30 seconds!

Here is the link for the game;

Literacy

We wrote a story about an elf adventure. We had to include time connectives and openers e.g. next, after, soon after, then, later, the next day and firstly.

Other Curriculum Areas

We put together our cubes all about the weather this week. We had to read facts about the weather and then highlight the important parts then use our own words to write about it.

To make the cube we had to cut out the faces, fold the edges in and out, glue them together and then trim the edges to make them look neat. Now we need to decide where to display them!

We made some Christmas cards with a bauble design.

On Tuesday we went to the Pantomime! We saw Beauty and the Beast. It was funny and had a lot of characters. There was a man dressed as a woman, they were the Dame.

We learnt about cooperation and learning to trust other people who we don’t know as well as our best friends. We had to start a picture then pass it round for others to finish off.
