This week we have been busy using the iPads to make Story Buddies and Lego Movies about the life cycle of a butterfly. We had some very impressive movies to watch by the end of it.
We have also been preparing and planting in our allotment outside.
In maths we have been learning all about symmetry. We have been completing the other side of symmetrical pictures and finding the lines of symmetry in shapes.
We have been on a hunt around the school for symmetrical objects.
In our topic we have been researching fruits and vegetables that we eat. We have been sorting them into categories according to which part of the plant we eat.
We have been reading 'The Tiny Seed' and drawing the different stages of a plant growing. We have also had an interesting week watching our caterpillars turn into chrysalises and recording this in our butterfly diaries.
In forest schools we have made homes for the butterflies, ready for when we set them free. We had some very creative houses!
Next week we will be thinking about how the caterpillar felt in the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We will be writing a dairy, imagining that we are the caterpillar. We will also be learning about alliteration and will be creating our own alliteration to describe the caterpillar’s food.
In maths we will be learning all about 2D shapes and the different properties they all have. We will also be solving shape problems. We will be programming the Spheros to travel around the shapes.
We will be getting creative and making butterfly collages in our art books, still thinking about symmetry. We will be thinking about different countries and what kind of food grows and what kinds of food are eaten in different countries.
