This week in Maths we have been learning how to divide. We used lots of different apparatus to help us with this. We looked at number families and the relationship they have with each other, this helps us when problem solving.
The children in Nursery and Reception have looked at the painting ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh. We have mixed our own shades of blue using white to make it lighter. We used wave and swirl movements to make our paintings.
We have also used ‘Colour Magic’ on the computer to create our own Van Gogh pictures
Year 1 have been reading the book “Lost and Found”. We have been getting into character using the ipads and then writing some fantastic speech bubbles. It has been lots of fun pretending to be the characters from the story.
In Mad Science you learn all about science like on our first week we learnt about toys and their kinetic energy. We played and learnt about toy cars, Jacobs’s ladder, a Slinkey, a Jack in a box and bouncy balls. It is really fun at Mad Science and you get a free toy every week like on the first week you got a yo-yo. We also learnt about force with the bouncy balls. Everybody is excited about it and we all will be sad when Mad Science club is over.
