During maths, Class 4 have been exploring capacity! We’ve had so much fun getting our hands wet to discover more about this area. We have looked at key vocabulary such as empty, full, nearly empty, nearly full, half empty and half full and used this in discussion during the our activities. We have predicted and measured using non-standard units (cups) and ordered containers from the greatest capacity to least. It’s been great fun!
As it has been Remembrance Day this month Class 4 have been writing instructions on how to make a poppy. First we made a list of the equipment needed and clear steps that included bossy verbs for the reader to follow. We made our poppies by following the instructions and wore them with pride to our street party on the afternoon.
Class 4 have been reading the book ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’ by Judith Kerr. We discussed why Mog got a medal at the end of the story and looked at what else Mog could do that would be kind or helpful to the Thomas family. Using this information, we created a trophy for Mog explaining why she had been rewarded this commendation. We linked our lesson to Maths too as we made our trophy using a 2D and 3D shape!
