Week Commencing Monday 7th September 2020.
Social Activities: We begin each day with some social activities as we arrive in the class as a way of settling into the day and developing our social communication skills.
Guided Reading: We each read our differentiated ‘Bug Club’ books, completing our individual activity written sheets to match. We worked quietly and sensibly, asking for support as necessary.
Birthday Party: This week we celebrated Emma’s birthday party with party food and birthday music! Happy birthday Emma!
Literacy – Constructive Sentences: For our Literacy we were looking at sentence construction, focussing on how many informative sentences tell you ‘who, what, where, when, and why’ something is happening. We then created our own informative sentences, using interesting animals for the ‘who’ part of our sentence constructions.
Music – Evoking emotions: Mr Scates arrived for our Music lesson, and we were learning about how Music can be used to evoke certain emotions, using tempo, rhythm, tone and more.
Numeracy – Times tables quick recall: For our Numeracy we were able to complete differentiated activity sheets called ‘Times Tables Race’ sheets, which were written activity sheets aimed to further consolidate our abilities to recall the times-tables in a quicker and more concise manner.
Art – Designing a lion: We followed a step-by-step process in order to draw and design our own lions, as part of our animal kingdom topic.
ICT – Venn Diagrams: We began our ICT task, where we were required to answer questions by demonstrating and acquiring knowledge of animal classifications with a ‘Venn Diagram’ sorting activity.
Topic/Literacy – Animal Ark Adjectives: For our topic of ‘The Animal Kingdom,’ we looked at the story of Noah and the ark. We discussed the contents of the story and then we focussed on adjectives, by creating a list of as many animals as we could think of, along with a list if adjectives to describe each animal.
PDMU – What makes a good friend: For our PDMU we heard a story called ‘Androcles and the lion,’ which is one of Aesop’s famous ancient fables, The fable has a satisfying moral: ‘A kindness is often repaid.’ We discussed the moral and the importance of demonstrating friendship even when it’s difficult to do so. We then moved over to our tables to write extensively about what makes a good friend, what doesn’t make a good friend, providing practical examples.
Numeracy – Multiplication Bingo: We took part in a multiplication bingo challenge, where we were to work on our quick recall, using written calculations to help us with our working out when necessary.
