Week Beginning 14th September
Well this week has been even busier than last week! We have worked so hard as always and tried our very best. We're very proud of our learning this week!
In English, we continued to describe the Big, Bad Wolf and some of the descriptions were amazing! We included adjectives to describe even though we weren't sure what they were last week! Amazing progress, well done! We published our first piece of writing which Miss Smith is very proud of - we used lots of new language such as 'beady' 'mysterious' 'cunning' and 'tangled' which made our writing even better!
In Maths we've continued to look at our Place Value and started to compare number using our crocodile arms (< > and =). We loved comparing using dienes and even compared each-other's height using the Greater Than and Less Than symbols.
In Encompass we've learned about why London is a special city. We learned its the Capital City of the UK and is home to some very important people like the Royal Family and the Government.
Science was very interesting this week - we learned about things that are living or non-living and some of us even discussed things that used to be alive such as wooden pencils or a bunch of flowers!
It has been a wonderful week and we can't wait for next week's learning! Well done Otters for all of your hard work!
Week Beginning 7th September
What a busy first week back we've had! Well done to everyone in Otter's class for your determination and resilience on your first week back to school! I am so proud! :)
We began the week with our story for this term 'Little Red Riding Hood' which links to our 'Traditional Tales' topic. We had lots of fun reading the story and acting out different parts - we loved pretending to be the big, bad wolf. Some of you were very scary!
In Maths we have been recapping our knowledge on place value looking at how to show numbers using dienes and counting all the way to 100! Forwards AND backwards! Well done to you all!
In the afternoons, we've made a start on our Science and Encompass topics - Living Things and Their Habitats and London. We talked about what we already know and what we'd like to know this term. Some of the questions were brilliant such as 'What is the most famous London landmark?' and 'Why do some animals eat meat?' We can't wait to start out learning!
It has been lovely getting to know you all and I can't wait to see what exciting things this year brings! Keep up the hard work Otters!
