Learning to Succeed, Succeeding to Learn

What can I tell Mumble about the UK?

The UK is a wonderful country in our world. Imagine for one minute, if you can, that Mumble, a brave, curious and friendly dancing penguin travelled to the UK for his world tour.  What would you show him? Where would you take him? Where would you start? How would you explain our country? What would a penguin write in letters back home to friends and family? As we progress on this learning journey, they will discover the joys and challenges of being a tour guide for Mumble and his ‘happy feet!’

Week 1

 

In English we have been learning about noun phrases. We went on a scavenger hunt and worked as a team to find natural objects (treasure)  in our playground. We then wrote some sentences using our phonic knowledge about the treasure that we found in the playground. We also challenged ourselves to add adjectives in our writing, to describe our exciting finds. 

In Maths we have been practising our addition skills. We have been learning about number bonds to 20 and we have been looking at how we can put our numbers in any order and we will still find the same answer! In Science we learned about night and day. We learned about how the Earth spins and how the sun and the moon give us night time and day time. We have also been learning about hibernation and which animals might hibernate.

In geography, we looked at a map of the world. We looked at the 7 continents and which continent the UK was apart of. We looked at a map of the UK and the 4 countries within it (Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.

 

Week 2

 

In English we have been looking at wishing stories. We wrote our wishes on stars and hung them around the classroom, hopefully they will come true!

In Maths we have continued to practise our addition and subtraction skills.

In Science we looked at the seasons and what type of weather is associated with each season. We drew and labelled pictures to represent the different seasons.  We also used our artistic skills and worked together as a class to create art for our learning journey display in the corridor of the school.

In geography, we continued to look at a map of the UK.  We learned about the 4 capitals cities of the UK. We identified each countries flag and labelled them.
