This week, we have started our new topic – Let’s Celebrate. We began our topic by talking about different celebrations that take place and ones that we have been to. We then planned out what would make a good celebration and decided to have our own. In Literacy, we have been reading a story called ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ so we decided to have our own tea party with some of the treats from the story. The children loved making their own party hats and helping to set up the classroom for our party and we played some fun party games.
In maths, we have been learning number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. We introduced the addition and equals sign to add two sets of numbers together and record them.
In Literacy, we have been learning about skills that the author uses to make a story interesting. We learned how to write a sentence using a capital letter and a full stop and then thought about how we could make it more interesting by using about adjectives and connectives. The children enjoyed retelling the story using the characters from the story.
In ICT this week, the children have been using Scratch to learn algorithms by making Scratch the Cat move with the movement blocks. They have also made their own coding journal to record what they did.
We also had the important task of looking after the school pets this week.
I hope you all have a great weekend and looking forward to another great week next week 🙂
