We have been trialling a new Maths journaling task in Cardiff class. Instead of journalling once a week, we have been doing it in every lesson. This is really helping us to show our working out and to present lots of different methods. We have been trying to get Dojo's for having the neatest journal every day!

We merged the classes to do a special circuit carousel lesson. We had children in the gym doing a work out, we had a group practicing their key dodging skills and we had a group playing games and working on their team building skills.
Science - this half term we have been doing weekly experiments. This week we were practicing printing and looking to see whether man made or natural objects would make the best objects to print.
Poem of the Half Term : NING NANG NONG
We did a group investigation at our tables to enquire which material was the most waterproof. We tested paper, card and plastic. We concluded that plastic was the most waterproof and that is why umbrellas and raincoats are made from this material.
In Phonics we have been classifying the EE sound. We have been looking at different spellings that the EE sound can make.
We have been fantastic at learning our talk map. We have been reading through this daily and adding actions to help us recall the story. The story we are looking at is Peace At Last.
This week we have been getting to know our new PE coach, Josh. We have been practicing our dodging skills by playing different games such as Stuck in the Mud and Bulldog. These skills are going to help us move our bodies in different directions and avoid bumping into our classmates. These skills will later be transferred into bigger games like Football, Basketball etc.
