What a busy term we have had!
We have been to the museum as part of our Romans topic. While we were there, we learnt about how the Romans dressed, what they ate and what Gods they believed in! We have also been learning about mosaics and how Romans changed the world.
Maths and Numeracy
In Numeracy, we have been working in our SEAL groups. As a class, we have been counting in 2s, 10s and 5s as well as building our knowledge of number sequences up to 30. In our groups, we have covered topics such number bonds to 10, forwards and backwards counting as well as identifying the value of a number within a 3 digit number.
We have also been learning how to tell time, focusing on o’clock, quarter to and quarter past and half past the hour.
In science, we have been learning about how the world and how animals and plants survive.
In literacy, we have learnt about poetry. We worked in small groups to match and think of rhyming words. We have also written two poems – one about Halloween and one about fireworks!
We have also been learning about non-fiction texts. We have used non-fiction texts to learn more about the Romans. We used our learning to write our own fact files about who the Romans were. We shared these with p2B who helped us by peer assessing our work.
We have also travelled back in time to Pompeii and have been creating diaries as part of our Roman project. Thankfully we survived the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and lived to tell the tale in our diaries!
Other curricular areas
En franҫais, we have been learning about classroom objects. We have also been listening to and translating instructions from French, for example, when we are learning how to play a new game.
In ICT, we have been learning to log on and log off the computer independently. To do so, we have been learning about passwords and usernames as well as how to type capital letters.
In P.E. we have been practising our throwing and catching skills as well as our spatial awareness.
