Spring 2

Here we are half way through year one already! With parents consultations being next month, you will be able to see the progress your child has made so far.

Many thanks for your support with homework. You are very inventive! The models of inventions look great on our display. If only the make money from paper machine and the tidy up machines really worked!

Our current focus within British Values is democracy. Each day the children can vote for a book to be read at story time. Also we recently voted for a class representative 'junior travel ambassador' to encourage active journeys to school as part of a whole school focus. Well done to Ruby for winning the vote.

In English, we have been focusing on improving sentences. We have practised using adjectives and writing similes. We use words like and, because, then to extend sentences. We have written character and setting descriptions to improve story writing and have written poems.

In maths, we have been working with numbers to 20, partitioning into tens and ones and finding methods to add numbers to 20. While the children can't instantly see that 8+7 is 15, if they make a ten, therefore showing 10 and 5, they instantly see 15.

Thanks for your support with our community link activity before half term. We have some great items to send up to the St. Paul's Church Charity Shop.
