Another superb week in Seal Class this week. We have been continuing with a focus on the value of respect this week as a school and it has been wonderful to see the children showing this throughout the week in different ways.

In Maths this week the focus has been on one more and one less. We have used a variety of question types including problem solving and reasoning to deepen our learning and to secure our knowledge and understanding. We then moved onto understanding tens and ones. We used dienes and numicon to support us with this. 

In English, we are focusing on a setting description of the woods from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We started the week off by going for a walk to Trentmill Nature Park. We used our senses to describe what we could see and hear. We then looked at nouns and adjectives and used our knowledge of the woods to describe what we could see e.g. I can see the tall trees. I can see orange and yellow leaves. We finished the week off by completing a guided write, before writing our own independent setting description.

In Science, we focused on the sense of smell. We identified the part of the body that helps us to smell. We then used our sense of smell to identify the objects in the covered cups. We made predictions and explained if we liked/disliked the smell. We smelt vinegar, garlic, coffee, lemon and pepper.

In PSHE, we have been looking at what a role model is. We discussed what makes a good role model and shared our role models with one another.

Have a fabulous weekend, hopefully the rain will stop and the sun will shine through.
