We have been using non standard units to measure the length and height of things around us. We had a class investigation to see who had the longest and shortest pencil. We each measured our own pencils using cubes so that we could accurately compare the amount of units. Joseph had the shortest   pencil which was 5 units long. Most pencils were 2 units longer at 7 units but the longest pencils belonged to George W and Orlaith, they had the same length at 9 units. Tomorrow we will be measuring ourselves!

Today we have applied our knowledge of halves and quarters of shapes to help us work out different times on a clock. After learning to spot o’clock and half past we were able to work out where quarter past would be because we could remember what a quarter of a circle looks like. It didn’t take us long to figure out how to read a quarter past twelve….lunchtime!

Over the last few weeks we have been designing and making a suitable coat for our Explorer Bear to go to Antarctica. We have researched different types of materials, different fastenings, linings and thickness of the cost and what other features might be important in our designs. We have learnt about the new equipment we need to sew and how to handle the equipment safely. New skills include cutting through fabric using a template, sewing a running stitch and tying a knot. Next week we will evaluate our products and maybe host a little fashion show!

Where would you like to explore? Today we made a block graph to show the most popular places that we would like to explore. We used our maths skills to compare the most and least popular places. Volcanos, the future, the jungle and space were just some of the places we would like to go. Antarctica and space were the most popular places. So, let’s get ready to explore. 😀🚀

We have been reading lots of non-fiction texts this week, especially about Antarctica. We are beginning to recognise the different features of non-fiction such as the table of contents, glossary, labels, headings and captions. Read some non-fiction at home and look out for Some of these features.
