In English we have started our new unit of work based on The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg. We have completed some active based learning including reducing the characters and working out which could be removed without changing the story. We then discussed who was the most important character, the boy or Father Christmas?
In Maths the Y2s have been looking at using concrete materials (base 10) to help them add and subtract 10s from two digit numbers. The Y1s have been using whole part diagrams to help them with subtracting.
In Topic we have been looking at seasons. The children looked at some photos and worked out they were pictures of seasons, they then sorted the pictures into the 4 different seasons and sequenced them as they happen through the year. We also learnt about directional vocabulary and maps. We used Google Earth to look at an aerial view of our school and we then labelled the different human and physical features we could see.
On Friday the children dressed up for Children In Need! They really enjoyed wearing spots to school, thank you for all your effort.
