Dolly, JJ, Oliver and William blog:
In English we have been looking at ‘Up’. It’s all about our topic called ‘Up, up and away’. We have been looking at hot air balloons and how they are made. We have been learning how to describe everything when we write it down. They have a basket at the bottom, called an envelope, there is also a skirt and some ropes that hold it all together. It’s filled with hot air and then it goes up into the sky then you let some of the air out and that’s how you control it. In science we looked at anemometers, they measure the wind speed, we made our own and measured the wind. In maths we are learning to count in twos and fives. We listened to some songs which helped us to count. We’ve had a lovely first week back.
