We are half-way through this half-term already and this week we’ve been developing our understanding of halves, quarters and thirds! If we’ve just finished week 3, how many weeks do we have left of this half-term?
On Monday, we began to look at explanation texts. We worked together to find some of the key features. Who can remember some of them?
On Tuesday, we had our first tennis lesson with Charlie. First, we were shown how to hold the tennis racket correctly and then we had to try to balance the ball on the racket, trying really hard to keep it in the centre. Once we mastered this, we began to travel with the ball and then we practised flicking the ball up and catching it on our rackets.
On Thursday, in music, we continued to learn more about the woodwind family. This week, we all got to practise playing the recorder. We learned how to hold it correctly and the names of the three parts of the recorder (the mouth piece, the body and the footjoint. We learned how to play the note of B by holding our finger over the first hole.
On Friday, we spent some time in our house groups to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Have a great weekend,
