Tales from Africa
Friday 28th February | 3 comments
This week we have enjoyed watching, reviewing and discussing some Tinga Tinga Tales stories. Children have started to think about the structure of these stories. We have written descriptions of the characters at the beginning and the end of the stories to compare and have looked at the sequence of the stories when writing a retell.
If you have time this weekend, please watch some more Tinga Tinga episodes. We will be planning and writing our own stories next week and this would help the children with their ideas!
Next Thursday we will be celebrating World Book Day. The letter has been emailed out again today. Thank you to those of you who have already sent in some ‘Shelfie’ pictures.
In maths this week, we have been learning all about 2D shapes. Children should now be able to sort and describe 2D, including lines of symmetry. Next week we move onto learning about 3D shapes.
In geography this week, we have been looking at maps to locate the continents and oceans of the world. We used the maps to look at places near to and further away from Farsley and plotted these onto circles to show their distances. We have also introduced the terms human and physical features. We stood at the top of the castle to identify some human and physical features of Farsley. We will continue to use this terminology when we start to look at Africa.
In science this week, we have started to learn about animals. Here we are classifying animals using correct scientific terminology.
