Spring Term A
The children have worked hard this week. They enjoyed an afternoon in bushcraft and have enjoyed creating African patterns in art. They have worked really hard on multiplication and division in maths.
The children are having a wonderful week in school this week. They have enjoyed learning their doubles and playing a dance game to help them. Please encourage your child to keep practising these facts by playing on the Hit the Button. They have been looking at African masks and discussing what colours and patterns they observe.
This week, in maths the children have been making groups and arrays so that they understand multiplication. In English, they are continuing with their phonics work and have been reading Winter’s Child, writing a diary as though they were Tom. In PSHE, the children have enjoyed learning about the people who help us and finding out about different jobs.
This week the children have continued working out totals and have practised giving change. We began our history topic looking at ‘How have toys changed compared to toys in the 1960’s?’ We have learnt the words, chronology, decade and century. The children worked with a partner to organise events into a timeline. They have been fascinated learning about life in the 1960’s.
We have had a busy week this week. The children really enjoyed a visit from The Happy Puzzle Company, they had to work as a team to solve different puzzles and problems. They also enjoyed making a new friend in the bushcraft area. It was wonderful to watch the children’s creativity as they set up homes and moved items around outside, we could really see their team work skills developing.
In maths we have been making amounts with money and beginning to give change. We had a great art afternoon, using different mediums to create portraits.
It has been so lovely to see the children after Christmas. They have enjoyed sharing their favourite present and Christmas memory with their class mates.
The children have been working really hard on money and their RWI lessons.
