Welcome back after the Christmas break! We have started the term with a short week although we have managed to squeeze lots in to these two days!
We have started our new topic which is called Burps, Bottoms and Bile. This is all about the digestive system and we will spend the remaining five weeks of the term discovering what happens to our food after we eat it.
Willow class had a visitor on Tuesday from St John's Ambulance who taught them some First Aid skills. Well done to all the children for participating well.
We have been continuing to learn about the digestive system and have started to plan and write an adventure story based on this.
We have also been finding out about our teeth. We made an imprint of our teeth and identified the different types. Check out the photo section to see how we did it.
Homework this week is a little different. We are setting the children a challenge to invent a new land and write a poem about it. There are lots of helpful hints on how to do this on the sheet that has gone home.
Willow class have been keen writers this week, continuing their adventure story based inside the digestive system. We can't wait to read the finished stories next week!
We have also been working hard in Maths this week, looking at fractions and decimals. The children have done really well at this tricky area of Maths.
We have also been continuing to learn about our teeth - this week we have discovered what they are made from.
