Chester's January Blog - 29/1/21
It's A New Year
The beginning of this new term and new year is not how we would have wanted it to be.
However I would like to say how proud I am of Chester class for working hard with their online learning. I know it isn't easy but thank you for not giving up and thank you to your families for their support.
The upcoming blogs will be about your online learning that you have been uploading to Google Classroom. I'm going to share as much as I can for each subject we have done some learning for.
I hope you enjoy it :)
We started learning about the book 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. Many of you listened to Mr McGookin reading chapters to you on the Looms for the lessons.
We have been completing writing using expanded noun phrases for description and conjunctions (like and, or, because, but) to join ideas and sentences together.
In our Maths learning, we have completed work about place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and 2d and 3d shapes.
We learnt about how we can use our place value and partitioning knowledge to help us with our addition and subtraction.
We learnt about using arrays to help us with our multiplication and division.
We thought about how we can identify 2d and 3d shapes, and what 2d shapes we can see on 3d shapes.
Our butterfly this half term is called 'Our Great Britain' and is about the country we live in. We have looked at the countries of the United Kingdom as well as the surrounding seas/oceans.
We have also started to look at what life would have been like in our country in the past and compared it to what life is like for us now.
Our unit this term is 'Gospel' and is about the Good News that Christians believe Jesus brings.
We talked about how Christians believe God is like a father and thought about the gifts that God gives people and how we could put them in order from most to least important.
Our topic this term is plants. We have thought about what plants need to grow. The children in the bubble in school have put some beans in a bag on a window and in a cupboard to compare what happens to the different beans. Using the pictures taken of the beans at school, and those that Miss Griffiths planted at home, we have started a bean diary showing what is going to happen to the beans. It will be exciting to see how they end up.
