Scarves, Antarctica and Ranulph Fiennes

Our week started with a colourful dance lesson where we used scarves and giant ribbon sticks to learn how to dance to differently timed beats. We listened to 80s music and began by clapping along to the varying beats. After that we were given the props so we could dance to the beat in a different way. We had to think about how we could move our whole body, use the space around us and how we could use our props.


In our Creative Curriculum, we have been fascinated by the modern day explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Last week we researched his incredible life, discovering loads about his expeditions which we then wrote about in our biographies of his life. We then decided that we were absolutely desperate to write him, so we managed to find his address and are in the process of writing letters to him! 

During our discovery about Ranulph Fiennes, we also looked at some spectacular images of Antarctica. We had a go at then doing our own Antarctica artwork using watercolours and cling film. This was a new method of creating landscapes that we hadn't come across before and we're looking forward to seeing the end result when we return to school next week!


In Maths, we've been learning about place value in mainly 3 digit numbers. By the end of the week, we were adding and subtracting multiples of 10 and 100. We used some of our classroom equipment to help us see the changes in the hundreds, tens and ones digits of the numbers we were working with.
