Our week of Learning - 1st March
English: He practised the letters 'g' & 'h' in handwriting, made a poster about Pancake Day and a display about his favourite book 'The Cat in the Hat Comes Back' (to be presented at the Homeschooling Book Day tomorrow).
Maths: Leap into Maths Yr 1 workbook - Unit 21 & 22. I'm having quite tiresome discussions in my head about the best way for us to be doing Maths.
Science & Technology: Water force - recorded observations of what types of things would sink & float in water. Investigated how to make a sinking object float. Investigated which was lighter - water or air.
HSIE (Human Society and it's environment): We finished watching Walking with Caveman, and began making a cave out of salt dough as the start of our Stone Age diorama.
Creative & Practical Arts: Drama class - they're working on acting out emotions. He also spent quite a while at home practising 'When the Saints go Marching in' on his keyboard.
PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education): Circus class. Jumping on the trampoline, lots of running around.
Life skills (cooking, gardening): We made pancakes for Pancake Tuesday - he did all of the weighing and measuring. I also started teaching him to knit (not for the faint-hearted!!).
