We hope everybody had a good break.

MATHS

This week we have been learning about money. We discussed what we knew about money and how it was still really important to understand the value of it even in these days of card and contactless payments. We set up a shop in the classroom and a French café. We are learning to recognise and identify coins and notes to £20, to use different combinations of coins to pay for items and to calculate total amounts spent.

LITERACY

Following our whole school health and wellbeing assembly on getting active we wrote about a sport or activity we enjoyed. We are trying to use adjectives to make our writing more interesting.

New spelling words were given out on Monday and we have been doing a variety of activities to help us learn them.

New reading books were given out on Monday and Tuesday and we have been working on written and oral comprehension in class.

OTHER AREAS OF THE CURRICULUM

PE- We were practising different ways of balancing on different parts of the body.

Science- Through a variety of games we looked at forces in the playground and discussed : how they work and what makes them stop? Does the wind have any impact on them?

ICT – We built a house to practise our click and drag skills.

FRENCH

We were practising having a short conversation using the French phrases we know and started to look at the numbers 21 to 31.

Further information about how you can help at home is in an additional blog.

Have a lovely weekend.
