Week beginning 26th April
This week we started our new English book 'Wombat Goes Walkabout'. At the beginning of the week we enjoyed learning about Australian animals - especially the Duck-Billed Platypus and the shape of a wombat's poo! In the story so far, the wombat has met a kookaburra and a wallaby. He thought they might be his friends, but they were boasting about what they could do and how good they were. We all agreed that we shouldn't boast - it isn't kind.
Last week, as you know, we went on a wild plant hunt. This week for our plant topic, we planted our own bean seeds. We have planted them in plastic cups and used cotton wool so that we can see how they grow. Hopefully we will see something happening soon.
In maths we've started our new topic of multiplication and division. We began the week looking at equal and unequal groups which we all understood very well. We have now moved onto adding equal groups, also known as repeated addition.
