What a busy week!

Wow! What a busy week we had last week in Class South Africa!

In English the children wrote non-chronological reports about mini-beasts. Some children made up their own mini-beast to write about, whereas some children collected information about real mini-beasts to write about. I was so impressed with how engaging the reports were - the children worked hard to include interesting details, engage with the reader, and include the main features of this text type.

In maths we used our knowledge of the different operations to solve word problems. The children were searching for the hidden number sentences and recognised which calculation they were being asked to do.

In IPC we were thinking carefully about seaside holidays and sun-safety. We learnt about the different human and physical geographical features that we might find on the coast (bay, harbour, pier, lighthouse, cliffs, sand dunes etc) and we also found out about seaside holidays in the past. Some children designed sun-safety posters (using paint), some designed and made a pair of sunglasses, whilst others decided on what they would need to pack for a sun-safe trip to the beach.

Not only that, we also had a visit from Mrs. Blaken with 2 lovely goslings.We all instantly fell in love with them and enjoyed having a cuddle with them! I will upload photos later this week.

Just a quick reminder about this week - on Wednesday we have our multi-skills festival at KLB! A big thank you to those helpers who have volunteered to assist us with our journeys there and back. The children are very excited and it should be a great morning!
