Weekly Review - Friday 15th February

English - this week the children really focused on writing their own stories. They used their ideas from last week to create story plans. Then they cracked on and wrote their individual stories. We had some amazing ideas including, astronauts, witches, monkeys and much more!  

In Maths we began exploring numbers to 50. We looked at what they are made up of- how many tens and ones (units) there are. The children used base 10 (sticks of 10 and single cubes for units) to show chosen numbers. They also used number grids to identify numbers and played some fun games! 

Topic time - We looked at some more map books and talked about what we have learnt so far. We will finish up this topic when we return and begin our linked in topic, which we will introduce when we return!  

Science - The children looked at common animals and their body parts. They had fun drawing creatures from descriptions- 2 ears, 4 legs, claws etc. They then had a go at creating their own descriptions of common animals. This is something you could play at home! Describe a common animal by it's body/features and see what your partner draws. 

RE- we finished up our big question. First the children were asked what 'good news means to them? We had answers of something exciting, it makes us feel happy, I get a funny feeling inside! The second question  was to finish the sentence- Christians believe Jesus is good news because... We had lots of ideas- He is friendly. He teaches us, He brings love and peace. When we return we will be thinking about Easter and what Christians celebrate at this time. 


Have a wonderful and relaxed half term!

***Please remember***:

PE kits (PE on Wednesday and Thursday)

Student planner and reading books in everyday. We expect the children to read at home every day. This does not have to be a whole book, a page or a few is great. We understand the children will be tired so if you feel they are too tired to read to you, then share a book instead and you read to them.
Please note in the Student planner under the dated section the title and pages read. Books are changed when needed. 

The children will have access to the outside area (which we are planning to develop!) so please could wellies be sent in to keep at school. Before the end of the term would be great!
