Welcome to Mrs Galloway's Class
Miss Brown, Mrs Galloway and Mrs Hodgins
To begin our school year, we are reading Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. So far, we are absolutely loving it!
Every morning, we start the day by learning to say hello and good morning in a different language - we've really been enjoying this, it will help us with our Geography too as this will be our focus for topic. Alongside lots of geography, we are exploring the religions of Islam and Hinduism and what it means to have faith, learning some French and developing skills in still life and observational drawing in art.
James and the Giant Peach has been great so far, we laugh a lot at the way Roald Dahl describes the characters - especially the Aunts! We've already created our own evil character and then wrote a character introduction in the style of Roald Dahl. We will be creating a senses poem putting ourselves in James' shoes when he first discovered the giant peach. When we are finished Mrs Galloway will upload them on our class page!
Take a look and read below at some of the amazing characters we created!
We have started our maths really focusing on place value and base ten. We have really got stuck in, with some tricky concepts, lots of mental math and times tables.
We have been comparing numbers and recapping on greater than and less than symbols. Here's a picture of us showing we can find greater than, less than and equal to, it was fun using the water to show this!
Our science for the autumn term is going to explore the amazing life cycles and adaptations that humans, plants and habitats make to survive. By the end of the topic we will be able to classify animals, explain their life cycle, how they survive and understand the involvement of their genetics. It's going to a very interesting investigation and we love animals.
Here's a sneak peak at some of the other fun we have at school
