Dinosaurs and an election!

Greetings Penguins,

What an exciting first week back we have had! We met a dinosaur who had time -travelled to come and see us, learnt about dinosaurs, had a new friend join our class and had an election where we voted

What facts do you know about dinosaurs?

Different dinosaurs eat different things. A dinosaur that eats plants is called a…? (herbivore)

A dinosaur that eats meat is called a…? (carnivore)

A dinosaur that eats plants and meat is called an…? (omnivore) 

Find out more about dinosaurs and what they ate through this link:

How is a fossil made?

In our election we had 3 different candidates to choose from; they all promised different things and we had to work out which were the best promises. Can you remember why you voted for the candidate you chose? Check out the picture if you need a reminder of what they were promising 🙂

We had to think super carefully because some promises sounded good at first but then we realised that actually they would not be so good for our health over a long period of time. What do your adults think? Do they have any thoughts or feelings about the election that they would like to share with you? 

On Friday it is Sports Day – Penguin adults if you are able to attend we would love to see you there! Penguins please remember to come to school in your PE kit ready to start our day of sporting fun! It would be a good idea to have put suncream on and to wear a hat as well. 

It will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell.

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday 🙂

Love,

Minibeasts and number sentences!

Hello Penguins!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Welcome back to a new term, it is so great to be back with all of you 🙂 This term our topic is minibeasts –  we have already begun to learn about different minibeasts, their habitats and some special facts about them, for example…flies have sticky feet! 

Which minibeasts can you name?

What facts do you know about them?

Remember facts are things that we know are definitely true and have not been made up.

What minibeast facts would you like to learn next?

See what minibeasts you can create using the game below 🙂

In maths we have been working hard learning to use numberlines and practising our number sentences. We have been practising both our adding and taking away using numberlines

adding numberline

numberline +1

Using the numberline below can you work out the answers to the number sentences below? 

1 + 1 =

3 + 1 =

4 + 2 =

6 + 3 =

3 – 1 =

4 – 2 =

7 – 1 =

Now can you make up some number sentences of your own and answer them using the numberline? If you write them down and bring them into school there might be a prize for you! 

Minibeast playlist: 

Tweety the singing chick has joined our class; here is a video of him celebrating Easter with his friend Bunny. Can you write a super sentence about Tweety? Work that shows super effort will be celebrated!

On Wednesday the whole school (apart from Yr4 due to swimming lesson commitments) will be having a Maths Open Morning. We have lots of fun activities planned and would love to see as many Penguin adults there as possible 🙂 

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!

On Friday it will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell.

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! 🙂
