We made predictions about what would happen to the main character in 'The Time-slip scarab'. We used drama to act out our predictions in groups. We had lots of different and exciting ideas about what the jackal would do to Emily.
This term we are using the Pie Corbett text 'The Time-slip scarab'. We have develop our own story actions to help us learn the text orally. Can you use your box-up story and our actions to retell the story?
We have been developing our sketching skills by drawing figures. We have designed our own Egyptian wall paintings with figures in different positions. Next we will use watercolour paints to add colour to our final pieces.
This term we have been working on learning our multiplication and division facts. We earned certificates for each times table we have learnt and the linked division facts. We celebrated this at the end of term 1.
We went to Lawrence Weston Moor to spend the morning with Avon Wildlife Trust as part of the lottery funded 'My Wild City' project. Lawrence Weston Moor is a large area of meadows and ponds just behind St Bedes' playing fields, near the allotments. It is owned by Avon Wildlife Trust and is home to many plants and animals including water voles and deer. In Science we are learning about living things and their habitats, so to support this, we did bug sweeping with nets to collect and identify insects living in the grasses of the marshland habitat. We also thought about how poisoning the land with chemicals affects food chains. It was a great morning of learning and exploring! The Avon Wildlife Trust have selected our school to take part in this fantastic three year project and we look forward to more activities with them throughout the year.
In Maths, we have been developing our understanding of division. We used the place value to explore this practically before moving onto formal written methods.
