This week we have been celebrating Communication and Language Week including World Book Day! We all enjoyed exploring the story The Firebird; a Russian folk story. We designed and made our own firebirds and used them to retell parts if the story. We also enjoyed coming to school dressed in our pyjamas and sharing our favourite stories over a cup of hot chocolate! 🍫☕️
In Computing we explored Scratch, a coding app. The children were brilliant at making their characters move and speak.
In Literacy this week we learnt about the suffix ‘ing’. In teams, we took part in an ‘ing’ relay. Great teamwork everyone!
This week we all had a great time designing and making a hat as part of our 'Arts Week'. We thought carefully about what we wanted our hat to look like and what materials we would need to make it.
Today we walked to St. Martins church and learnt about what it means to be part of the church community. We looked at the special stained glass windows and lit candles to think about the people who are special to us. We also learnt why there are different colours of robes and their significance. We even got to try out bell ringing!
This week Rowan class have been learning about part whole models and investigating addition within 10.

This week Elder Class have been consolidating their understanding of numbers to 10 and 20. The children challenged each other to make a number and then asked them to explain the 2 parts to make a whole. E.g 8 can be made from 7 and 1, 6 and 2, etc.
