Class Teacher: Mrs Bishop
We were lucky enough to have a coach from Royals Netball club visit us. We enjoyed developing our netball skills.
We had to build the tallest tower possible, in 5 minutes, out of just newspaper and sellotape. We did not get very tall towers.
Next, we took on roles (Materials manager, Time keeper and Designer) and had another 5 minutes to build a tower. This time, it was much more successful as we worked as a team and all took our roles seriously!
We have been learning our model text — The Gorgon Medusa. We use actions and a text map to help us. Soon, we will be writing our own non-chronological reports based on the model.
We have been using concrete manipulatives to support us with our learning of addition and subtraction.
