28 days has February
February may have been a short month due to half term but we still managed to cram in a lot of work and fun activities!
Thank you for your continued support.
In English, we read ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ by Roald Dahl. We really enjoyed learning about the tricks he tries to do to get children to eat. We also thought he was funny how he ended up in space at the end of the story as a punishment.
We created our own version of the story by changing the crocodile to another animal. Some of us also changed the tricks that the animal plays on the children and the adults. We changed the ending slightly by having our animal come back and apologise to the other animals and making sure the behaviour changes for the future.
We participated in Number Day as a school. We dressed up wearing number related clothes.
In our class butterfly, ‘We Are United (Kingdom)’, we continued to learn about the United Kingdom and the countries that are part of it.
We looked at how life has changed for children since the 1930s and thought about what is the same and what is different.
For National Engineering Week, straight after half term, we learnt about a famous man called Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We discovered that he was responsible for designing ships, railways and some famous bridges including the Clifton Suspension Bridge. We used paper and tape to try to create our own bridges across our tables. We discovered it was actually quite difficult to make sure it was strong enough to hold the weight of a toy. We also discovered how important it is to listen to one another when working in a team.
During February, we used PowerPoint and the Internet to help us to complete research for our plant presentations. We learnt how to add new slides, paste photographs from the Internet and how to change the design of our presentations.
We also thought carefully about how we can keep ourselves safe when using the Internet and what we should do if we ever feel worried about anything. We know and understand how important it is not to give out our important information and created posters using Paint to show this.
We finished our learning about plants this month. We loved seeing how much they had grown and we measured them to find out how tall they were from the bottom of the roots to the top of the stems. Lots of them were over 20cm long!
On the last day before the half term, we could come to school dressed in clothes that express who we are as a person.
