‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week 3

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. 

Week 2

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. 

Week 1

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.
