In Science we have been learning about habitats. Today we learnt about micro habitats. First we used what we know from our reading lessons to think about what the word micro means, then we decided that a micro habitat was either a small habitat or somewhere small animals live. We then found out that insects and mini beasts live in different micro habitats. We looked at lots of different micro habitats around the school yard and field to see what insects and mini beasts we could find.
We have been so lucky this term to be learning Mandarin. Today we even got to learn how to say ‘Merry Christmas’ in Mandarin and made some Christmas cards. Our Mandarin teacher Mrs Wu has been very impressed with our Mandarin skills over the last few weeks, we even took a Mandarin speaking and listening quiz and some of us were given fortune cookies for our fantastic work! We can’t wait to learn more Mandarin after Christmas.
Shèng dàn jié!
Thank you to all those who came to see us in our performances of Prickly Hay.
Our new RE topic is all about preparing, we thought about all things we need to prepare for – getting ready for school, a birthday party, a holiday. We then thought about preparing for Christmas. To help us prepare we made Christmas decorations for our class Christmas tree, made Christmas themed biscuits and made a snowman Christmas card all while listening to Christmas music. We had a great afternoon!
When we came into school this morning we arrived to a strange scene. There was a book with lots of post it notes on it and a chair turned the wrong way. The book had been left as a present but we don’t know who from. We tried to see if there were any clues around the classroom, but unfortunately we couldn’t find anything.
Today we have been celebrating Children in Need. We started our morning with a Pudsey wake and shake and we have taken part in lots of Pudsey activities.
Today we have started learning our 2 times table. We did this with the help of Bridget the Lioness. We are starting to become 2 times table heroes!
Why not have a practice at home!
