We have had a busy start to November and are working really hard, take a look at what we are learning in class.
We have started developing our learning around addition and subtraction. This past three weeks, we have been consolidating learning of different strategies for addition, including: empty number lines, partitioning and number grids. We have also developed strategies for adding several numbers together and are beginning to look at using the column method. Below are some pictures of us using games to develop mental strategies for addition.
In literacy, we have been learning to develop our imaginative story writing, looking at how we plan and structure our stories and developing interesting characters.
Our new Science topic has been lots of fun so far. We are learning about materials; liquids, solids and gases and chemical reactions. So far we have looked at chemical reactions involving gases. This has been through the Cola and Mentos experiment and the balloon experiment using soda powder and vinegar. Here are some pictures, showing you how much fun we had.
We have also been learning about how molecules look in solids, liquids and gases. We did some experiments looking at materials that are both solids and liquids. Here are some pictures of us exploring ‘Gluck’ (cornflour and water) and making glitter goo.
