Acorns have loved learning all about the planets this week with a visit from the mobile planetarium. They learned all about the atmosphere on different planets, as well as what the different planets are made of. We have also been looking at money and paying for our ticket to get into the planetarium. Some children even made amounts using different coins up to 10 and 20p!
Beech class have been analysing data that they have produced. Quite a few insightful conclusions about the class (especially their favourite foods!).
Acorns started ‘Walk to School’ week off with a lovely stroll to the local park where some of us were experiencing the joys of a local park for the very first time.
Later on in the week, we were looking at sequencing familiar activities and following instructions in order. As we were reading ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, naturally we made porridge and got to eat the fruits of our labour! What was quite amusing is that the children were using the story language without even realising…… “Miss Mockford, this porridge is too hot!”
This week we have been making wanted posters to warn everyone about the Big Bad Wolf. We made necklaces with repeating patterns to cheer Grandma up and made a chocolate cake in the microwave to share at snack time (Grandma did not get any of the cake!).
We have been exploring percentages this week and looking at the links between decimals and fractions. We matched up different representations and then added more of our own.
During our maths lesson we explored percentages and looked at how the world can be represented as 100 people. We then used this idea to explore other representations of 100 and percentages.
The children have been reading the story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and remembered the game ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf’. We decided to learn how to tell the time to the hour and some even managed to half past the hour! What a lot of fun we had!
