I have been really impressed with how hard the class have been working this week!
We have come to the end of our sentence stacking lessons based on The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and we have now begun to plan our own traditional tales with a twist. The children have come up with lots of creative ideas and have worked very hard on planning their stories.
In Art this week, the class have carefully prepared their sunset backgrounds in preparation for finishing their Stonehenge silhouettes next week. We discussed the colours that we can see in a sunset and also thought about how we can blend these colours together.
In our History lesson, we learnt about cave paintings; we found out lots of information about how people in the Stone Age made their paints and what they used to paint with. We also learned about the typical things they used to paint, such as animals and hunting scenes. We are all looking forward to having a go at our own cave painting style pictures next week!
In Science, we have continued our topic on Animals and Humans. This week we learnt about different types of skeleton; endoskeleton, exoskeleton and hydrostatic skeletons. During the lesson, we watched a short video showing how animals with exoskeletons shed their old skeleton to reveal the new one underneath – we were quite fascinated by this process! We also learnt about the difference between the types of skeletons and grouped animals according to which skeleton they have.
