Harvest Mouse Term 5 Newsletter 2017

In maths this week we have focused on doubling and halving. We had fun using doubling to problem solve. We made older brothers for the small robot that were double the size.

We wrote a class poem based around our book of the term ’10 Things I can do to help my world’ by Melanie Walsh.  We then had fun making up actions and performing it to a steady rhythm.  Please see the file below…

Our Class Poem

Harvest Mouse class enjoyed making Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Cupcakes as part of Healthy Living Week. The children used yoghurt and a range of berries to make their own frozen fruity cupcake. They  participated in yoga and learnt about the seven food groups as part of a balanced diet.

We have had lots of fun during our first week back at school.  We having enjoyed reading our new class book Traction Man and have been busy doing lots of work around this text, such as building houses and equipment for him out of duplo; acting out scenes from the story and writing his thoughts in thought bubbles.  In maths we have been doing lots of counting and  looking at 2D shapes.  We enjoyed creating pictures with these.  We looked at the difference between  2D and 3D shapes and some of us built towers using 3D shape blocks.

Harvest Mouse class had lots of fun on Roald Dahl Day.  We got to taste some Roald Dahl themed food, including jelly worms (The Twits); mini donuts (Fantastic Mr Fox) and peach (James and the Giant Peach).  We had to find amazing adjectives to describe the different foods.  We also sorted shapes into Roald Dahl themed groups, made fox masks and created giant peaches.
