Welcome to our February blog. Due to the National Lockdown, our class have continued to produce amazing work from their online remote learning lessons. Like last month, I would love to share with you examples of the children's work which they have completed at home.
In English, the story which we have been focusing on is George’s Marvellous Medicine. The feature learning focus for this month's blog is poetry. The children were asked to use rhyming couplets and create their very own medicine poems. Here are some examples of the children’s work.
In Maths, we have been looking at the value of coins and creating different coin combinations to create different amounts. For example, to make 20p, we could use 10p + 10p or 5p + 5p + 5p + 5p. How many ways can you think of? Here are some examples of the children’s work.
In RE, we have been looking at Humanism. Have you heard of it before? Well, most of Wells class hadn’t and they had plenty of questions and thoughts about their new topic. Humanism is a philosophy or a way of thinking about the world. Humanism is a set of ethics or ideas about how people should live and act. The children were surprised to hear that Humanists do not worship a God or Gods and do not force anyone to do anything they do not want to. They believe that humans only have one life and that you should live a worthwhile, happy life for themselves and others. Please the children’s work below.
In History, the children looked at how the playing of music has changed over time. The children discovered that music was played using cassettes, then CD’s, then MP3 players and now smart phones. The children found it very fascinating at how each device looked and all agreed that they preferred smart phones due to the versatility and memory of them.
That is it, for now, folks, we hope you enjoyed our February remote learning blog and we look forward to seeing you again in March when we all go back to the classroom!
