This week has been Literacy and Science week. We have been learning about poetry in our Literacy carpet sessions and we have enjoyed reading lots of different poems. We looked for the similarities and differences and spotted rhyming word patterns. We read a poem called ‘Making Jelly’ and thought about adjectives to describe how jelly looks, tastes and feels! Then we made up some actions!
In Science, we made jelly and watched as it dissolved! We learned that is doesn’t ‘melt’ as described in the poem. We looked at other solids and predicted whether they would dissolve in water.
We wrote instructions using our phonics skills for Ms Earl and Ms Peck to read and make strawberry jelly. They did very well!
In maths we have continued learning about halving and we have practised halving numbers checking our counting carefully.
We enjoyed celebrating St Patrick’s day and learning about the patron saint of Ireland. We had a special assembly and were treated to a brilliant Irish dancing performance by Year 6!
