Week Beginning 7th November

In literacy, we have been practising using a range of different sentence openers to make our writing more interesting. We have used; ly words such as quietly, hungrily and greedily, nouns - Trees were swaying gently in the calm breeze as well as conjunctions - When the huge, grey elephant ran away, he stood on poor old tortoise.

We have been studying "Why elephant has a long trunk?" from the Tinga Tales of Africa, which the children have really enjoyed. Later in the week they will be writing their own version of the story.

Rachel the vet came to visit to tell us about her job. We enjoyed learning how to bandage!

Hope they all get better soon.

To further develop our use of place value skills, this week we will be looking at addition and subtraction calculations - hopefully we'll remember to look carefully at each calculation and out teachers won't be able to trick us!

Week beginning 31st October.

This week we looked at Henri Rousseau's painting "Surprised" and painted our own versions of it. The children were very careful to add detail with small brushes and enjoyed mixing their own shades of green.

In maths, we have been working hard to fully understand place value. We have been making links between our place value knowledge and subtraction, with great success!
