This week has been anti-bullying week. During PSE sessions we discussed friendships and the importance of being caring and looking after one another.
The children have been enjoying practising their songs for their Christmas production.
In English, we had fun learning a variety of poems/rhymes and the children wrote their own ending to a rhyme centred on ‘The Gingerbread Man’.
In English, we will be looking at 'The Usborne Book of Big Machines'. The children will be learning about fire engines and discussing why information is ordered in alphabetical order. We will create a mind map of the information we knew and in a different coloured pen what we would like to find out. Throughout the week we will answer the questions. The children will draw a picture, name and label their truck along with a sentence and caption.
In Maths, the children enjoyed measuring numerous items using cubes, pencils and beads.
In Maths, the children will add and subtract numbers by 1, 2 and 3. In pairs the children will roll dice and added them up looking for number bonds to 10 or matching pairs or doubles.
Pre-learning: Practise counting on in 1s to add 1, 2 or 3 to another number making totals to 10.
In Geography, the children have learnt about the different types of farms and features of a farm and were very good in reading a map and symbols along with using a compass to navigate around the farm.
In D&T the children created a moving picture and they very much enjoyed making ‘The Gingerbread Men’ with Mrs Wells and of course the best part was eating them!
Have a great weekend
Mrs Beadle and Mrs Wells
