This half term Beech class have been working for Portal Travel as Branch 1 Travel Agents. As part of our role we have had to research Africa and record our results in the form of a poster. We used iPads and laptops to find information and displayed our finished posters in Branch 1 Travel Agents.
As part of our English we have been exploring Jill Murphy stories and using our learning to write our own version of Peace at Last. We read many Jill Murphy stories including Peace at Last and The Large Family, which we used to find the features of Jill Murphy stories.
In Maths we have been learning about coins and notes, multiplication and word problems. We used a method called arrays to help us multiply and we will be using this again to help us divide soon!
Our artist of the half term was Mondrian. We explored primary colours and straight lines and learned all about his style of artwork. We worked in groups to recreate a large version of his work.
