The children this week had an amazing opportunity to learn about farm animals and about ways to care for them. The Ark Farm’s visit on Tuesday allowed them to have a closer look at animals such as a donkey, a pig, some lambs, chickens, ducks as well as rabbits, guinea pigs and even a hedgehog. The children loved stroking the animals on display and recorded lots of newly learnt facts about them later on in class.
In English, we have completed our first big write of the term. A newspaper article based on our class book, The three little wolves and the big bad pig. In Maths, we started our new unit of fractions, using Cuisenaire rods for the first time.
We have completed our daily mile and in Design and Technology, finished our circuits and switches for our bedside lamps. Today in our Computing session we learnt through using Scratch how to use the forever and repeat programming blocks. The children enjoyed programming three dinosaur sprites to dance!! They finished off their afternoon, enjoying their fruit kebabs!
Have a lovely weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
