What another busy week the children have had in class. They have produced some excellent work and we are incredibly proud of each and every one of them!
In literacy this week the children have continued to look at the story of Baba Yaga and a range of alternative traditional tales. They have learnt about the similarities and differences so that they can magpie some ideas, to support themselves in developing an alternative version of Hansel and Gretel next week. They have also worked further on the writing skills on conjunctions and the use of pronouns. This is so that their writing moves away from being repetitive and holds the attention of the reader.
In maths the children have been continuing their learning of addition and subtraction, adding and subtracting across the tens boundary. This required the children to show great resilience as this at times proved a little bit tricky, but no one gave up. Next week we will be building on and securing this knowledge further.
This week the class became immersed in our History learning. Our question this week was 'What is Stone Henge?' After reading our booklet together and learning from what information we could extract, about midsummer and midwinter days and what Stone Henge is, we were set the task of recreating the ancient monument using biscuits! The discussions around the classroom was brilliant and the children got to demonstrate in discussions the new vocabulary that they had learnt from this lesson. The children worked brilliantly as a team, demonstrating great listening skills and teamwork.
