This week we are learning about fractions. Today we learnt about fractions of shapes. We cut some cakes into halves and then quarters. Then we ate them!
We have been learning about Captain Cook and his journey to Australia. We looked at some of the animals he discovered. We compared the animal he found to what we have here. We sorted some pictures of sea creatures into ones he would have recognised and those that would have been new to him.
We have been investigating which materials would be best for making a rain coat out of. We stretched the materials over a cup and dropped water on. We tested plastic, tissue, paper towel and foil. We then rubbed a wax crayon over the paper towel to see if this made a difference.
Today we used different sized balls and cones to make up our own games.
