It has been great to welcome everyone back into class. We feel many have grown taller and there are more baby teeth missing!

We have used the plot of the 'Very Hungry caterpillar' to create our own story lines. We have had a wide range of attributes from being hungry, thirsty, lonely and football crazy! We are very impressed with how our children are showing more independence when writing out their stories, using their story planners and knowledge of spellings and phonics. We also thought about other Eric Carle books we loved. Today we explored the prefix 'un' which affects adjectives and verbs. How many can you think of, or is that unclear? :)

In maths we are now thinking about numbers to 100 and using new vocabulary, such as 'addends, partitioning, greater than and less than. We have created number lines where the numbers have to increase in jumps of 2/4/5/11 or 12. We made these for our friends to solve. Can your child give you a number that is greater than x but less than x? Or found between x and x? 

We are looking forward to having PE on Monday's and Thursday this term. We will be practising our multi skills ready for sports day and learning how to play rounders.

In RE we will be learning some stories from other faiths. This week we heard about David and Goliath, found in the Jewish Torah.  We thought about how we may sometimes feel small too but how faith can help. Many children recognised the story as it's found in the Bible too.

Our topic for PSHE is 'Being My best' and links well to our whole school focus on our Bidborough Behaviours. These can be found in the front pages of the planner so maybe have a look and discuss with your child, as we explore growth mindset together.

Wishing you a sunny, peaceful weekend!

From Mrs Voisey, Mrs Mundy and Mrs Rutherford.
