The children have been learning about Divali and making Diva lamps. They have been using direct speech in their Nail Soup stories, using Kung-Fu punctuation and a speech sandwich to help them. In Maths they have been counting onwards and backwards in 1’s,4’s,8’s,10’s and 100s. They are learning some French rhymes and have played handball in PE. Swimming will be on Wednesday instead of Tuesday from now onwards, as per letters sent home last week.
We are well into our stories which are called "To the Edge of the World". Following the model has helped us to understand how to set out dialogue and use fronted adverbials. In science, we learned about the different processes that solids, liquids and gases undergo while in DT, we investigated which materials float and sink in preparation for making boats next week.
