Week Commencing 27th June 2016
What we are learning this week...
Literacy- In literacy this week we will be continuing our topic on 'Under the Sea' and we will be using non-fiction books to find out more information about some of the sea creatures that we read about in 'Billy's Bucket'. We will learn about the features of non-fiction books and we will use a contents page to help us to find something within the book. We will practise writing labels, lists and we will reserach, draw and write information about a sea creature of our choice.
Maths- In mathematics this week we are continuing to practise finding half of a number by sharing objects into two equal groups. We will be doing this practically with objects and in different contexts to help us to use and apply these skills in everyday situations.
Understanding the World- We will be developing our understanding of the world through researching and finding out about creatures that live under the sea. We will also be exploring wet and dry and observing the changes that happen to an object or material when water is added to it.
Expressive Arts and Design- This week we are going to design Scuba Diver costumes for the Bee Bots and creating an under water world bee bot mat for them to travel around to meet all of the sea creatures that we are learning about.
In Technology- In technology we will be learning about programming the beebots and learning about directional langauge. We will input commands to make the beebots visit all the different sea creatures on our under water world map.
In PSED- We are going to be working being confident when thinking of, sharing and using our own ideas. We will learn about the importance of listening to each other and using other peoples suggestions as a stimulus to help generate our own ideas.
