SIMPLY AMAZING! What an amazing start to the year? Having been away for 6 months, Children have returned to school with a renewed energy and settled in beautifully. They have adapted to the new rules instantly hence showing resilience, responsibility and independence.
In English, children enjoyed exploring and writing Autumn poems. They studied colours, shapes and textures of leaves and used their senses to come up with wonderful adjectives. We also wrote Fact Files about Polar bears using the book "Leaf" by Dieckmann Sandra as hook. This inspired the children to research and learn more about some of the most endangered animals in the world.
Maths was all about Number! Numbers! And more Numbers! Children explored numbers and their place value using Dein’s and place value chart. They then applied the knowledge and skills they learnt to solve addition and subtraction problems. They even mastered how inverse works. In the last couple of weeks, children have enjoyed hunting and investigating 2D and 3D shapes in our environment and became experts in recognising their properties.
Our Project Based Learning focused on geographical skills whereby we looked at all 7 continents, identified physical and human features as well as looking at our locality. We also took a small trip to map our local high street.
