Oliver Jeffers - How to Catch a Star
This half term we are reading and writing about 'How to Catch a Star', by Oliver Jeffers.
This is a beautiful story about hope, resilience, lateral thinking and determination. We have been reading with expression and fluency, and have really enjoyed thinking up how we would catch a star!
To ensure everyone knows which spellings should be learned for which weeks, all the information is now here. Children know what group they are in, and the spellings will be tested on Monday morning.
This page will also come home each week on paper.
Thank you for your support!
Adding and Subtracting
In maths at the moment, we are using different strategies for addition and subtraction.
Lots of our learning is about using different materials to help organise thinking, and explain how we know we are correct.
Last half term, we planted some mustard seeds, and they didn't grow!
So this week we have planned an experiment to find out why they didn't grow. We have decided that we need a control group, and children are choosing to test the best conditions for growth.
In science week we have been learning all the elements of scientific investigation.
We use this skills wheel to keep us on track with our thinking, and make sure we don't leave anything out!
This term we are learning about animation. We began with flick books and have moved on to stop frame animation.
Stay tuned for some videos of our clay models, inspired by Morph!
