What we did last half term

TOPIC

We have been looking at the story Jonah and the whale. We also looked at how we grow and how we look after ourselves.

ENGLISH

We have been looking at how to write letters and reading the books, The Twits and Fanatic Mr Fox. We have used these books to look at rhyming words and describing words.

MATHS

We have been looking at co-ordinates, making maps and perimeters, column addition/subtraction. We have also been looking at measurements using things around the class.

Science

We used the iPads and the class computer to find where we live on google earth and researched information about our local area.  

                  

OUTINGS THIS TERM

We have been going to different places over Cannock Chase on Wednesday afternoons.

BROCTON COPPICE

We went to find Freda`s grave. She was the mascot for the New Zealand rifles in World War I.

We used a compass to find our way around the forest. The children loved using them to find north, south, east and west.

We had fun using maps to find our way.
