Wednesday 11th September
We have had an amazing afternoon today where we were lucky enough for Mr Brash to come in and dissect some hearts with us. We had to very carefully make a cut on the largest side of the heart and once we had cut through enough we opened up the heart and could see all the blood vessels inside. We even managed to put our finger through the Aorta! After the heart experience we were given a 100 number square where our challenge was to piece it back together. But the trick was the numbers were in a different language!
Thursday 5th September
Our first topic in numeracy is all about place value. To start with we have been exploring place value using counters and then relating this into drawing. We then explored the patterns that we could find if we subtracted 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000 and how certain digits stay the same but some also decrease.
This was then followed by looking at the main organs of the human body and taking our lesson outside to see if we could place the organs in the correct position of the body. Some organs were very tricky!
Wednesday 4th September
A great start back after a lovely summer looking at the artist Kandinsky. We used his idea of circles and created our own Kandinsky heart art.
This was then followed by our Wow experience of looking at what blood actually is. We learnt the key vocabulary and then made our own blood.
