Science skills in Sycamore!
This week in Sycamore class we have been exploring different types of animals and how to classify them. The children looked at the different characteristics of different animals and sorted them using Venn diagrams. We did a class diagram altogether and thought of different criteria for our groups. The children then played a game of guess the animal (Similar to guess who?) in preparation for next weeks lesson when we will be completing classification keys.
The children have also been looking at more than and less than a given number in maths and have lots of opportunities this week to use the counters and base 10 to support their understanding. In English, we have been collecting lots of ideas to plan our own setting descriptions.
Well done Sycamore class.
