The children are really enjoying our Dinosaur topic. This week we worked in pairs to design our own Dinosaur to be built in the last week. They had to decide whether their dinosaur was a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore? They also had to think about other features including defence against carnivorous dinosaurs. They really worked hard with some of the designs going up on our topic board.
Maths has seen the children extending their knowledge of numbers to 20 and for some beyond upto 30, 40 and even 50. The children are beginning to extend their own learning by choosing an activity after their learning. These challenges are changed weekly with various activities from problems solving to consolidating work we have already covered.
The daily mile run is being timed to encourage the children to improve their time and learn how to pace themselves during the run so they don't end up having to stop. The class have really enjoyed timing themselves and trying to improve.
