Our plants continue to grow this week and the children are very keen to take their radishes home soon! Apparently they should be ready after 4 weeks when they are about 2 cm in diameter. They were planted on the 2nd of June as a guideline.
We started to look at ‘grouping’ and ‘sharing’ as part of division this week, having a go at making even groups out in the playground or seeing if we could share counters equally between 2, 3 or 4. We enjoyed working with this game for some of our division practise: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/doggyDivision/index.html

While we are exploring poetry this week the children particularly enjoyed listening to Michael Rosen’s Boogy Woogy Buggy read by the poet!
We also enjoyed looking at the layout of poems and how we can combine bits of art techniques here.

We also had a look out for the partial solar eclipse on Thursday which was happening in Edinburgh. We enjoyed thinking about eclipses and the children liked this video about solar eclipses:
