It is hard to believe that there is only one more term until the end of the year, but we have had lots of fun filled activities during our final week of this half term.
In Maths, we have been practising converting units of length (mm, cm and m) and using these skills to add and order different lengths. Our Maths Star of the week is James for the great effort he put in completing his conversion activities. I have challenged the children to make 'conversion posters' to show their understanding, and I am hoping that we may even have some so amazing that Mrs Alford would like to see them for her Hall of Fame. Good luck everyone!
In English, we have continued our study of Varmints and begun to consider how the text makes us feel. We have also been practising creating our own expanded noun phrases to make our writing more interesting. After a great game using a Where's Wally book, we all wrote our own clues for our partner, to see if they could find the person we had identified. Cezary and Booby are our joint English Stars as they worked so well together and created some great sentences.
We had a special visit this week from The Body Bus. We spent and hour on board learning about ways to keep our bodies and minds healthy. We were able to identify our internal organs, discuss what makes a healthy and unhealthy lifestyle, and even had a visit from a giraffe!
Have a great half term!
