Class News

Week Commencing 23rd September 2019

In Maths, we answered our key question and worked out which group of objects was the most and which was the least. We also carried on completing our Hansel and Gretel challenges. Have a look to see how we got on with designing the top of our gingerbread houses. We had to draw our designs first and then try to copy them exactly using biscuits, icing and smarties.



Week Commencing 30th September 2019

In maths, we had a new key question. We had different bags of sweets and we had to work out how many were in two bags at a time. In English, we had a surprise! The fairies and elves visited us again and gave us something mysterious to plant and a story about Jack and the Beanstalk. We also took part in our Harvest festival. Well done everyone, some great singing!


Remember to keep reading at home.

Week Commencing 7.10.19

This week, we have been watching our plants very carefully and some of them have started to grow. We think they might be beans just like in our Jack and the beanstalk story!In maths, we have been working on our adding up skills. We are learning that if we know 3 + 2 = 5 then we also know 2 + 3 = 5 and 5 = 3 + 2 and 5 = 2 + 3. We have also been working hard to learn our number bonds to 10 off by heart. In topic, we have been learning all about the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. We are looking forward to seeing what challenges the fairies and elves send us next. Well done for your amazing class assembly this week too!

Week Commencing 6.1.20

Something strange happened at school today. Mrs Gray got an important phone message asking us to go outside. We noticed lots of things and we think that a spaceship might have crashed! We took lots of photos and we collected samples of the materials to use and explore with in our science lessons.
