Otters Class Blog – 3.11.17

We have been learning about 2D shapes this week and have been very creative by turning some of them into firework pictures using black paper and pastels.  Some shapes have straight sides and others have curved sides. We also looked at the shapes to see where their lines of symmetry are and then used paper shapes to find fractions of the shapes.

Earlier in the week we were curious learners discovering lots of facts about Guy Fawkes.  We found out that he wanted to blow up the Houses of Parliament because some people did not like the King, King James I. We celebrate the event on the 5th of November which is when the plot failed in 1605.

We have also been practising our retelling of How To Wash A Woolly Mammoth and were very creative in the actions we used to remind us about the order of the instructions.
