This term we have been looking at 'Stories with Familiar Settings' and 'Information Pages'. We will also be looking at 'Shape Poems'. One of our favourite book characters has been Max the hedgehog (or hodgeheg as he would say), who gets a bump on the head whilst trying to find a safe place to cross the road, making him all muddled! We wanted to imagine what it would be like to be poor Max so we made miniature worlds and wrote as if we were in them!
Our Topic is 'Healthy Me' and it's something we've been taking very seriously! We have thought about how to keep our bodies healthy with what we eat and drink, how we exercise and getting plenty of rest. In order to see how exercise effects our body, we measured our heart rate before doing skipping and after doing some skipping and thought about why they might be different. We have also been eating healthily (yes! In the classroom!) and have been working on designing, creating and evaluating a three course meal.
