This week we have been finding out about tortoises.
In English we have been reading ‘How the Tortoise got his Shell’. We have drawn a story map and started to learn the story using words and actions. We have also been revising our Jolly Phonics digraphs and tricky words.
In Numeracy we have been using 2d flat shapes to make tangrams and to tessellate the tortoise’s shell. Some shapes tessellate easily but some shapes don’t fit together very well and leave big gaps.
We were really lucky on Friday to have a surprise visitor in class, Nia Williams’ Auntie brought her pet tortoise Flash into class. We got to stroke him and feed him!! It was great!
