P3B Reflective Friday 8.6.18

Our learning this week in P3B:

Maths

This week in Maths we have focused on:

  • Learn Its- these have continued daily, with more PB’s being achieved and others graduating to the next level.
  • We have continued our investigation of tenths – both of a shape and as value of a number, eg 1/10 of 30, 3/10 of 20 and also on a number line.
  • We have continued to learn about telling the time using a digital clock, focusing on the main quarter points, ie 00:00, 00:15, 00:30 & 00:45. Some of the class have started to explore time in 5 minute intervals.

Literacy

Our literacy learning has included:

  • Spelling with a  focus on “EA” words, eg head, read, bread.
  • We have continued our learning about poems, looking for rhythm, patterns, rhyme, repetition. To support our learning we created our own verse to a poem about “Surprises” which followed the pattern in the original poem.
  • Linked to our HWB learning we used the plan created last week about a banana during its journey from growing in the tropics to arrival in a UK shop and then to its final destination to write a story which included the many emotions experienced by the banana and description to explain the different stages of the journey.

Art

We have completed our mosaic art of fruit and vegetables.

Project

  • We have started a small project on investigating our community. We started by identifying what we could do during the project, this included:
    • using maps to find out about Buckstone and how it has changed over the years.
    • finding “landmarks” in the area.
    • discovering how the land is used.
  • We would also like to become architects and design a “brand new” Buckstone.

ICT

This week we continued the theme of instructions by learning how to programme a “virtual” robot – Daisy the Dinosaur, giving her instructions which used more complex commands, like repeat & when, which allows more control over the robot and writing instructions with less code.
