This week we were very lucky to have the opportunity to try Mrs Alford’s homemade vegetable soup. The whole class identified various vegetables and even had a little taste of the soup. We carefully did some sketches of the vegetables and either painted them or used pastels to add colour. I think we have quite a few artists in our class!

In English this week we have looked closely at sentence structure. We have practiced making expanded noun phrases and using time connectives in our work ready for writing our own version of Tiddler.

This week in maths we have been working on making numbers using manipulatives, ordering numbers and placing the correct numbers on different types of number lines. The children seemed to enjoy these lessons as they have been very practical and hands on.

The children are really enjoying being back at school and getting stuck in to their lessons.

In English, the children have been listening and retelling the story of Tiddler by Julia Donaldson. They have enjoyed making actions up to the story to help the, remember the key parts. Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying some Julia Donaldson stories.

In Maths, the children are working on place value using lots of different manipulatives such as place value counters and coins to help them work out the values of numbers.

Our topic this term is Commotion in the Ocean, we have been looking at different sea creatures and classifying them. The children have enjoyed looking at baby animals and their mothers and matching animals up.

The children really loved our class trip to The Deep. They were amazed and in awe at seeing all of the different sea creatures. A lot of the questions the children had about the animals were answered during the trip.
