We have been looking at the paintings of Leonid Afremov, he uses blunt instruments to create paintings of all types of things- we have looked at his paintings of animals. Today, we created our first part of our portrait and have been painting the animals using a spoon.
Lime Class have been looking at number bonds to 10 and 20 this week and subtraction facts from this. On Monday we chose different ways to represent our numberbonds to 10! On Tuesday we investigated numberbonds to 20 and some of us looked at numberbonds to 10.
On Wednesday and Thursday we investigated the inverse of addition and found subtraction facts for numbers to 10 or 20.
This week we are reading Dear Zoo, we are looking at making appropriate word choices to describe animals. On Monday we looked at describing animals using our own word choices. Some of us wrote labels for the animals. We were looking at using our phonemes. On Tuesday we wrote some sentences- using our adjectives from yesterday! Some of us included connectives too... On Wednesday we thought about the story and the order. We mapped it out or rewrote the story in order. And on Thursday we chose our favourite zoo animals and made appropriate word choices to describe them. We really enjoyed this!
Tomorrow we will be writing a letter to the zoo telling them why we do not want our zoo animal. Watch this space!
