We watched the video of the experiment on the moon where the astronaut drops a feather and a hammer and we guessed which would hit the surface first. We then did a similar experiment in our classroom to show how gravity acts on objects on earth. I was so impressed that some of the children already knew about gravity. I think we have some astronauts in the making ! We are learning a song to the tune of London's Burning to help us remember the correct units.

In English we looked at patterns and rhymes. We started the week with the poem, Don't care, didn't care and moved onto Michael Rosen's,  'Down behind the dustbin.' The children listened to him reading the poem and thought he was hilarious! He is better known for his book, ' We're going on a bear hunt, but his poems are just as good. We finished the week retelling and acting out the story of the Gingerbread man. I do think we have some future stars of stage and screen in class !

We did some work on ordinal numbers and how to use numbers to represent position and moved onto to estimating objects. We used a variety of items such as buttons, matchsticks, feathers and pasta shapes to make an estimation of the amount. We then counted the objects accurately to see how close we were in our estimations. Some of us need to practice this a little more as there were some wild estimates!

In English we looked at funny and repetitive poems about worms all week. The children found some of these hilarious, but we managed as a class to learn one off by heart and were able to recite it in full by the end of the week. A super effort by all !

In English we designed posters on Bonfire Safety as well as our own firework and linking to Mathematics we wrote about  The Greedy Triangle. We are all trying hard to remember full stops, finger spaces and capital letters in all our work. Next week we are moving on to funny poems and repetitive rhymes which we are all looking forward to.
