This week in Dolphins we have been learning...
Maths: In maths we have carried on practising reading the time and working with 5 minute intervals and we even had a chance to practice these skills in a time connect four game which was a lot of fun. We have also been working on explaining our answers and how we worked out different sums and why we have done the working out in a certain way.
Literacy: This week we have been writing acrostic poems about animals. We spent some time thinking about adjectives and using the thesaurus to find new and exciting vocabulary. We also thought about alliteration and how we could use this in our poems. We came up with some fantastic ideas and have used some amazing adjectives!
Topic: In art this week we looked at collage some more and took a section of a picture to experiment with how to create the different effects using ripped or cut paper, smaller or larger pieces ect. In music we began working on writing and composing our own animal songs. In science we carried on looking at life cycles and thought about the different life cycles in animals and plants using a book called "Tad" by Benji Davies.
