Spring 1 Memory Box

Week Commencing 17th  January 2022

This week, we learned all about poetry. We read poetry books called ‘A Great Big Cuddle’ by Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell and also ‘Crazy Mayonnaisy Mum’ by Julia Donaldson and Nick Sharratt. We learned some of the poems by heart. We also learned about rhyming words and had a go at writing our own rhyming poems. In maths, we learned all about adding up by making 10. For example if you need to add 8 and 6, you can think of it as 8 + 2 + 4. You split the 6 into 2 and 4 so that you can easily add the 8 and 2 to get to 10 and then 4 more to be 14. Later in the week, we also learned how we could use this method of bridging 10 to help us to subtract (see video below). In geography, we learned all about litter. We went and did fieldwork around school to see where we could find litter. We then made posters to remind people to put their rubbish in the bin. In history, we learned all about how Balliol has changed over the years. We also learned about how taking a photograph has changed and how toys have changed.
