Squirrels Class Weekly Blog – week beginning 05/10/20

This week we have been learning all about Florence Nightingale.  

We sketched pictures of Florence Nightingale (Bailey).

She was called ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ because she held the lamp every night when she was checking on patients in the hospital. She was nurse. (William).

Florence Nightingale was named after Florence, in Italy (Thea).

I found out that Florence Nightingale was a bookworm and she trained at nursing school (Mia).

Florence Nightingale made hospitals a better place, by keeping hospitals tidy and giving them better food (Freddie).

In Maths this week we have been solving addition number sentences, using a number line. We have been drawing our own jumps on a number line and partitioning into tens and ones (Mya). We have also been looking at number patterns using a 100 square and how we bridge into a new ‘10’. For example, 39 – 40.

We are still learning about Traditional Tales and We painted traditional tale characters for a display in the corridor (Isabelle).

Some of us have built lighthouses out of Lego (Archie).In Science we talked about healthy eating and we designed our own plate of food (Elsie).
