Deforestation, Roman numerals and more
We've had a wonderful half-term packed full of exciting things. In Maths we've been rounding to the nearest 10, 000 and 100, 000 as well as looking at numbers beyond one million! We've also been exploring Roman numerals beyond 50 and even up to 1000. In Art we've explored weaving outside and created some lovely rainforest inspired paintings. We've also written some fantastic pieces of extended writing, including setting descriptions and persuasive texts. We've learnt lots of new things about the rainforest, including all about the different layers and what you can find there, before moving onto deforestation. This inspired us to write about the dangers of destroying the rainforest and helped us to learn lots of facts about how it's endangering life and damaging the environment. We took part in a lovely visit to the church and now we can't wait for the next half-term.
We've had a great return to school and have really enjoyed our rainforest topic so far. During the first week back we had the chance to write about the rainforest, describing what we could hear, smell and see all around us. We also researched a very famous Scientist called Jane Goodall who is well known for her work with chimpanzees. We've also been taking part in football activities for P.E and have been really challenging ourselves in Maths by exploring numbers to at least 1, 000, 000. We're really looking forward to the rest of our topic so please check out our class page for further updates soon!
