Welcome back everyone, I hope you had a lovely Easter break!
We have lots of fun activities to look forward to this term. Learners Class will begin swimming lessons on Tuesday mornings this term. Please make sure to give your permission on Parent Pay if you haven’t already.
Mrs Gurney will be teaching computers on Tuesday afternoons this term.
This week in Maths, we have enjoyed learning about position and direction. We have made quarter turns, half turns, three quarter turns and full turns with lots of objects around the classroom and have had lots of discussion around clockwise and anti-clockwise.
In Science, we have classified animals in to 6 main groups depending on their features and enjoyed drawing pictures to demonstrate our learning.
In English this week, we have been making posters about animals that are good ‘Learners’ – like our class name! We each has our own ideas of animals that were smart and were able to back-up our opinions with facts.
In Art, drawing is our new topic and we have been looing at the artist Pablo Picasso. We learned about his style of drawing portraits and had a go ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed this and the finished pieces were fantastic!
As part of Hedgehog Awareness week, next week, we will be having a ‘hedgehoggy day’ on Thursday 5th May. We will keep you posted!
Learners love to learn!
