Rainy days ☔️

Last week we made the most of the wet weather and wrote some poems about the rain.  As well as this we used paint and straws to create our own rain drops for our poems to be displayed on.
In phonics we learnt about the spelling rules for changing singular nouns into plural nouns.

We learnt about cm and m in maths and used our rulers and metre sticks to estimate and measure the length of different objects.

We are continuing to observe and record the weather every morning and afternoon and we’re beginning to notice how the weather can change lots of times within a single day.

Congratulations to another reader of the week.

Weather Poetry

This week in English we have started a unit on poetry and we are linking this to our topic on weather.  We worked together to perform some weather poems and today we took a closer look at the rain and studied the April Rain Song by Langston Hughes.

We went outside and carefully looked at the rain thinking about what it feels like and sounds like and all the different places it goes.

In topic we have recapped the seasons and have observed and recorded the weather.

We’re looking forward to next week especially because Monday reveals our new Reader of the Week.  Congratulations to Ella who was this week’s reader 👍.
