Spring Term 2013 Mrs Hooton Room 7

We have loved learning about the Rainforest for our Spring Term topic. Our Rainforest environments look fantastic, we worked really hard and cannot wait to take them home with us!

In science we have been using our senses to explore the rainforest. It was fun thinking about what we could see, hear, smell, taste and touch if we visited the Rainforest. 

In literacy we have been writing information leaflets about rainforest animals,  making posters about endangered animals and learning to use WOW words to make our writing more interesting.
We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, counting up and back to 100 and practising our doubles and number bonds to 10 and 20. We have been using  Numicon to add and subtract and times numbers. We are also learning about 2D and 3D shapes and how to tell the time.

During E-safety Week (4th February) we learnt about how to be safe when using the internet. We loved watching Hector's World and discussing the meaning behind all the stories.  We understand the importance of not sharing personal information on the internet such as our name and surname and our address.  We also decided that it was not a good idea to 'chat' in 'chat rooms' on websites like Moshi Monsters, as we do not know for sure who these people are as we can not see them.

Junior Chef was FANTASTIC! Chef taught us how to make a Tropical Fruit Crunch and we got very, very sticky! We learned that it was really important to look, listen and learn so that we could follow all of the instructions. Everytime we answered a question correctly we could have a healthy prize! We could choose a little drink of...a mystery juice! At the end of our session we found out that the juices were pomegranate, passion fruit and lychee! We liked them all!
