This term we will be looking to the skies to learn all about the weather. We will be thinking about the hot and cold places all around the world, and observing the weather and measuring the temperature every day.
We will be thinking about some people from history who have made an impact on the way weather is measured today, for example Sir Francis Beaufort.
We will also be watching the weather forecast to see how accurate they are, and maybe even presenting some of our own!

This week in Maths we have continued to look at place value- thinking about how many tens and ones a number is made up of. We have developed that this week by comparing numbers and finding the greatest number- we have compared the tens and the ones to help us do this.
In topic we have continued to think about the weather and this week we added an object to our stormy picture. We built this up carefully by firstly doing an observational drawing and then painting the outline of our chosen object in black onto our painting.
In Science we thought about Winter flowers and we identified the roots, stem, petal and leaf.
We also thought about the steps we need to take to achieve success and that we have to watch, listen and have ago to achieve our goals.

We have started our daily weather observations, recording the temperature and weather each afternoon to build up a record of the weather for the term. we have also looked at some famous paintings and tried to work out what kind of weather they represent, and have started to paint our own rainy day pictures.
In maths, we have started to think about place value and describe a number in terms of how many tens and ones make up that number:
