In Maths this week, we have been continuing our work on Position & Direction. We have been making and continuing patterns with 2D shapes, using directional language to describe them. We were able to spot the pattern’s rule, e.g. the triangle turned a quarter turn anti-clockwise each time etc.
In English we have been inventing new characters for our new story based on The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We are swapping the tiger for another animal, describing it using exciting language and thinking about what that character will say in our new stories. We have also been thinking about different times of the day that the new animal could visit.
As part of Aspirations Week, we were lucky enough to be visited by Mr and Mrs Porter, who work in healthcare. The children came up with lots of thoughtful questions to ask them and fully enjoyed learning about this career path and having their questions answered. I’m sure that they have inspired the children to aim high for their futures.
We also thought about what the children aspire to be when they are older. Take a look at our photos for some of our aspirations! Dream BIG!
This week’s Explorer of the Week is Zach. He’s really gone the extra mile this week in terms of effort. Well done!
