A lovely sunny week in P2A
Our topic this term is houses and homes. On Monday we went on a walk around Springfield to look at different types of homes. We saw detached, semi-detached, bungalows, flats, and terraced houses. Then we looked at the needs of others and designed a home out of lego for an elderly lady. We decided that a bungalow would meet her needs. Some of us even added a stair lift to our home design!
In Maths this week we have been working on data handling. On Monday we learned how to make tally marks, we even made tally marks with our bodies!
On Tuesday we each used a bag of skittles to practise organising data into a bar chart.
Then we each asked the class a question like ‘What is your favourite pet?’ and showed our findings in a bar chart.
In mental maths we have been practising counting in 5s. This helped us to count our tally marks.
In Literacy we worked on character descriptions. We wrote descriptions of Gerald the Giraffe using WOW words and some of us even challenged ourselves to use a simile. A simile is when you compare two things using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’ eg, he is as fast as a rabbit.
Here are some examples of our amazing writing:
