Week 9 - 07.11.16

In maths this week B2 have been gathering data and entering it into simple tables, charts and graphs. We have been using the words: axis, horizontal and vertical when discussing them. Counting in 5s has helped us to make tally charts. At the beginning of the week we asked everyone what their favourite pet was (linking to our science learning). The children then entered their results into a pictogram or bar chart on laptops and some children even drew their own bar chart using rulers.

We have also practised reading the data; answering specific questions about the most popular and least popular results and using two sets of results to find a total or difference.

Our new unit of work in literacy is based on ‘The Power of Reading’. We have chosen the book The Lonely Beast by Chris Judge. Ask your child to tell you about the story. So far we have: made story maps, acted out parts of the story and discussed the beasts feelings as the story progresses.  Today we wrote diary extracts, in the first person ‘I’.

As part of our science learning Noah’s Mummy brought ‘Pilot’ the dog in to B2! Pilot is a Border Collie, which is a type of sheep dog.  We talked about the importance of asking owners if we can pet their dog before doing so.  We learnt about the types of food that Pilot can eat and how much exercise he needs.

Well done for another fantastic week B2.

Have a lovely weekend
