# Spring 1 Hola Mexico

* HAPPY NEW YEAR ASLANS *

- Week 1 -

In Creative Curriculum, we are learning all about Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. We used the iPads to have a closer look at some of her most famous paintings and discussed the symbolism used in her artwork.

- Week 2 -

In Maths, we have been investigating division by grouping and sharing cubes!

For extra practise, have a go at playing Doggy Division Dinners ðŸ¦´ðŸ¦´ðŸ¦´

In Science, we are continuing our topic Light and Shadows. We explored how to make shadows bigger and smaller. Next week, we will be investigating this further by planning an experiment and taking measurements.

In PE, we are learning how to play golf! We warmed up with our favourite game 'Divots' where the greenkeepers are desperately trying to protect their golf courses from the pesky badgers! After this, we learnt how to correctly hold a golf club and practised our putting - it's harder than it looks!

- Week 3 -

Here is the link to the song that we learnt in class today during our singing lesson.

In Spanish, we are learning about colours!

In Science, we have been investigating how the size of a shadows changes depending on the distance between the light source and the object. We found out that the closer the object was to the torch, the larger the shadow was!
