What We Have Been Learning About!
The past two weeks have been great,
We have learned what goes on a healthy plate,
We have studied the Romans,
and learned what it is to be humans.
We have learned that bones keep you strong,
If you don't believe us you are wrong,
We have counted up to subtract,
We have also learned to count back,
In English we have been brushing up on our poetry,
As well as learning that not all past tense verbs end in ed,
Meanwhiile in PE we are learning how to move safely,
Because Mr Holmes says that in the classroom we are too noisy,
We've learned lots of French words for food,
However Mr Holmes can't pronounce them any good,
in the coming weeks we want to show,
Just how much we can grow,
Happy New Year Maple!
We've had a really productive first week back. We have read a lot of Fantastic Mr Fox and will continue to study it in the coming weeks. This week the children have been learning how to punctuate speech. The children have revisiting place value and ordering numbers up to four digits. We have begun and will continue in the coming weeks to learn about 'Invaders and Romans' as our history topic this term.
Last term we were awarded 50 parliment points for good behaviour throughout the school by various staff members and this Friday as voted by the children of Maple we had our fun P.E. lesson where we got the ropes and ladders out in the hall.
''Lets hope the good behaviour and positive attitudes towards learning continue throughout the term!'' said Mr Holmes.
Following the fantastic middle school production of Jack and The Beanstalk last week. The children of Maple class have now completed our Science inverstigations of 'Light'. In Maths, we have begun learning about fractions and are beginning to solve complicated Maths problems about fractions. With Christmas around the corner, we have started learning about letters. In the coming weeks we will continue to improve our writing by focusing on powerful verbs, adverbs and interesting adjectives. Finally, we will be decorating Christmas ornaments and designing Christmas cards and calendars.
