It was lovely to see the children all refreshed after their half term break.
This week we have been focusing on story writing in English and the children have written their own versions of a story we have read in class.They enjoyed setting up the role play as a pirate ship and are loving playing in it.There are lots of”ooo aarghs.”We also revised suffixes especially ‘er’ and ‘est’.
In maths we have started looking at money. Please can you help your child at home to handle coins and be able to make up different amounts using a variety of coins.
In science we started learning about the senses and this week we focused on hearing. We made cup telephones and talked about how the ear works and vibrations.
Thank you for bringing in the boxes for art and the children have started making their ships. For some it was a first experience of paper mache!! They are going to be fabulous.
Have a good weekend.
