This week in Giraffe class we have been reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have been describing the giant in our English time, using great adjectives like 'massive' fierce' and 'gigantic' to describe him.
In the afternoons we have continued our science learning about plants. On Monday we planted some cress, bean seeds and potatoes so we can watch them grow. The cress seed are already starting to grow!
We have also been learning about the different parts of the plants. We worked together to make a collage picture of a flowering plant or tree.
In maths we have been comparing numbers and using the language of more than and less than, and greater than and less than. We met Charlie the crocodile who likes to eat the biggest number! We have to work with a partner to find the biggest number to feed to Charlie!
Welcome to Giraffe class! It was so lovely to welcome all the children on Wednesday and see how well they came into class ready for all the new learning and laughter and love we will share this year!
Even though we have only had 3 days this week, we have been busy and packed a lot into it!
In English we received a postcard from our class mascot, Daisy Giraffe. We talked about our own holidays and wrote our own postcards back to Daisy.
In the afternoons we have introduced our new learning theme, 'Amazing Eckington'. We enjoyed looking on Google Earth. We started in space looking down on the whole world, then zoomed in on England and then found Eckington! We spotted our school and other places around Eckington. We will be finding out more about Eckington over this term.
In Science we started our learning about plants. We looked at different types of plants and shared what we already know. Mrs Smith was very impressed about how much we already know about plants!
