Week beginning 19th April 2021
We have had a lovely week enjoying plenty of the sunshine outside! The children have really enjoyed the story 'Where's my Teddy?' and we have had some super writing from them based on their own experiences related to the story. They have been very good at describing the feelings of the main characters! Next week we will be continuing with this text. In maths we have been practising subtraction using tens grids and bead strings to support our calculations as well as practising counting forwards and back on number lines. We have also been learning about equivalencies related to addition. Last week we practising identifying 'o'clock' on a clock face and this week 'half past'. Next week we are starting to identify number bonds to 20 using our knowledge of number bonds to 10.
In science we have been out on a walk looking for signs of spring and talking about changes to the seasons. We are focussing particularly on the changes to one of our larger trees in the school as the seasons progress. In geography we have been learning about human geographical features and drawing and labelling a range of them as well as looking at globes and simple maps.
Next week in science we will be drawing our chosen tree as it is now and identifying how it will change over the year. We are also looking after a range of seeds we have planted as part of our work in 'Forest School'. In geography we will be comparing the polar regions and learning about life in the Arctic.
We look forward to a great week next week and we will be celebrating filling up our class cork jar with some special treats (chosen by the children)!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Mrs Scanzi, Mrs Warren and Mrs Selwyn
