This week in Butterfly Class: 

It has been a lovely week in Butterfly Class settling in and getting to know all the children. 

 In English we have been getting to grips with out online class story Aunt Agatha Space Explorer. We have also been working to think of words to describe the Aliens.  We will be continuing with this and reading Chapter 2 next week as well as creating and describing our own aliens that could be Agatha's Nephew.

In Maths we have been focusing on HTO identifying the value of each digit.  We have been looking a different visual representations for numbers including Part Whole Models, Place Value Charts with digits and counters and Base 10 representations.  I have included some of the teaching PPTs below which maybe used to catch up on any areas of confusion below.

 In Science Aunt Agatha asked us to investigate what liquids she could use as an alternative to water to grow in space.  The children came up with a range of ideas and next week we will be planting and feeding as part of our investigations liquids such as; cola, lemonade, squash even milkshake. 

In Art children have been looking at their favourite plant artwork and recreating these.  In Music we learnt how to create our own beats using 2Beat and how to change the tempo of these tracks...
