The children had a fun time on Thursday celebrating World Book Day and it was great to see so many different book characters. I am sure you will all agree the children all looked amazing! A big thank you to Mrs Shipley, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Serra for coming into Year 1 and reading a story to the children.
The children also enjoyed a visit from the Year 4 children to share a story with them .
Following on from World Book Day, there is a competition for children to enter if they would like. The task is to write a short story of their choice and bring it into class before Thursday 4th April so that it can be judged.
World Book Day 2019!
On Monday, we were very fortunate to have Father Michael visit our class with the Monstrance to give the children the opportunity to pray before the Blessed Sacrament. The children behaved beautifully and it was a special time for them to talk about the miracle and mystery of the Eucharist.
In English, the children have been reading the interactive book, All About Elephants. During this time the children have been writing labels and will progress to planning and writing a simple report.
In Maths, the children have been focussing on addition using the ‘tens frames’ to support. We will continue using these next week and introduce subtraction. You will have noticed that the children have been asked to use the tens frames for homework. More information about the use of how a tens frame is used can be found at www.hertsforlearning.co.uk/blog/take-one-resource-humble-tens-frame.
Next week is Science, Maths and Engineering Week and we are looking forward to a fun and exciting week.
As we progress through Lent we will also begin our new RE topic on ‘Change’.
Enjoy the weekend!
