I can not believe we are at the end of week 4 already. The children have worked exceptionally hard this week and as always I an extremely proud of each and everyone one of them. Our value this week has been respect. We have talked about what this means and how we can show this in and around the school.

In English, we have been working on writing a character description. Earlier in the week we completed a guided write for Daddy Bear describing both his appearance and personality. We worked hard to include all the features of a super sentence including capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We then completed our first independent write for Goldilocks. We were amazed with the work the children produced. They included everything they have been taught over the past 3 weeks and we couldn't be any prouder.

In Maths, we have been focusing on representing numbers to 20. In doing so we used a variety of concrete resources, numbers and written words. Following this, they applied their knowledge to pictorial questions as well as problem solving and reasoning. Finally we ended the week by finding one more and one less than a given number to 20 practically. 

In History, we have been looking at our family tree. We looked at their grandparents, parents and siblings. We discovered that the oldest relatives at the top of the tree and the youngest are at the bottom.

In Science, we have been looking at our senses. This week we focused on the sense of sight. We investigated how light effects how we see and how distance effects how we see. We had lots of fun completing these investigations. 

In art this week, we have been looking at Jackson Pollock. We experimented with shades and created an art piece inspired by his art work. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
