We have been looking at traditional tales with a twist. We read the stories Cinderella and Prince Cinders. We then practised telling Cinderella using a story map to help us. Once we understood the pattern of the story, we could innovate it before finally inventing our own version.
We use concrete apparatus to help us understand maths before moving to pictorial representations.
We have been learning about hygiene. As part of this, we created our own set of teeth using Lego. We then used these teeth to eat some banana before using toothbrushes and toothpaste to clean them. We found it really tricky to get into all areas of our teeth. We found flossing got to areas our toothbrush could not reach.
Art & Design
We have been learning about the artist Keith Haring. We found out that his artwork was used in the Change4Life advert to spread the message of the importance of living a healthy life. We developed our art and design techniques using colour, line and shape and produced artwork in the style of this artist.
Design and Technology
During design and technology, we looked at how different pastas can have different flavours. We then designed our own pasta salad. We wanted our dish to be healthy, appealing and taste nice. We learnt skills such as, chopping, slicing, dicing and grating. We hope you like the look of our pasta dishes.
