This week has been world book week and we have celebrated with a range of activities. In Literacy and topic we have been looking at Jane Goodall and her work. The children read a story about her early life and followed this up by writing their own diary entry in the first person.
They then looked at the type of toys she would have played with and then had a go playing with them themselves. They enjoyed it very much and were able to comment on the difference between then and now.
By looking at Jane Goodall the children found that one person can make a big difference. Based on this the children had thought and then drew pictures and commented about what they would do to change the world.
In Maths the children worked on data collecting and reading. We started by making tally charts around the school about favourite animals and lessons. This was then transferred by them to a pictogram on school laptops, which was saved and printed. As the week progressed we began to look at bar graphs and how to read them. The children enjoyed creating their own and then reading others and seeing the information on them.
Finally, to celebrate book week the children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters and they were shown off in front of the rest of the school. It was great to see so many creative costumes and the children were further inspired to read and find out more about their friends characters.
