This week in Crocodile class we have been busy reading Jack and the Beanstalk and thinking of adjectives to describe the characters in the story.
We have also been looking at growing our very own beanstalk in Science by getting hands on and planting broad beans, cress and potatoes! We are studying how fast they grow, and what they need to help them grow.
We have been looking at a range of plants and trees that we have growing around our school and identifying what they are from our fact sheet. It also gave us chance to see the first signs of Autumn as we found many leaves changing colour and lots of acorns!
We have been very active this week as well where we have begun to listen to and copy the beat in music, clapping, marching and dancing in time to different rhythms. We were amazing at this and even put our own words to it by the end.
Well done Crocodiles! Let’s see how much our beans, cress and potatoes have grown by Monday! We have a few who are keen to eat them!
This week, in maths we have been practicing our counting, ordering and writing numbers to 10 and 20 .
In English we discussed with the rest of the class what we did in our holidays and wrote a postcard to our new class mascot, Kevin Crocodile, telling him all about what fun we had!
In the afternoons we have been busy researching for our new topic ‘Amazing Eckington’ by looking at where we live on globes, maps and Google Earth. Crocodile class were very excited to share their existing knowledge of what places they already knew in Eckington such as the library, swimming pool, the post office and our school! We will be discovering lots of new facts about Eckington this term.
Well done Crocodiles class. A great first week!
