It has been lovely to have all the children back in school this week!
We carried out two science experiments.
The smarties experiment
Our re-growing vegetables experiment
This week we looked at 3D shapes. We learnt their names and started to discuss their different properties. We challenged ourselves to use the vocabulary sphere, cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid and cone when building models in the maths or construction areas.
Anna Hibiscus' Song
Over the next few weeks we are going to base some of our work around the book
Anna Hibiscus' Song by Atinuke.
Anna has a large family and some of us decided to draw pictures of our families. We discovered that Anna lives in Africa, amazing Africa. We looked at a map of Africa and found that it is made up of lots of different countries. Some of us know people who have lived, or currently live, in African countries.
