In English, the children have enjoyed listening to the story of ‘The Last Noo-Noo’. This book has given them the opportunity to write in full sentences remembering to use a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence, finger spaces between each word and a full stop or question mark at the end. They have been using a freeze-frame to act out planting their own object and next week they will complete this unit by writing their own magic tree story. I am very much looking forward to reading these as the children have been very creative in selecting an object to plant.

In Maths, the children have been exploring numbers to ten and beyond. They have used Numicom, bead strings and the tens frame to help them find different ways to make their chosen number.

On Tuesday, the children enjoyed the outreach session from The British Schools’ Museum in Hitchin. They had the opportunity to explore real and replica toys from the past such as a cup and ball, a zoetrope, a kaleidoscope, Jack in the box, a Diablo and many more. The children said:
“It was really good because we got to see what our mummy’s and daddy’s played with in the past.”
“It was great because we got to see toys that we have never seen before.”  
“I liked finding out how optical illusions are made.”
“I noticed that the toys in the olden days were made from metal, wood and feathers.”

During RE, the children have been listening to the story of the ‘Presentation’ and learning about Anna and Simeon.  Afterwards, they created lovely pictures using pastels to depict this story.
In PE, the children have enjoyed using parachute and the large apparatus in the hall.

Next week in English, the children will complete their stories. Then, they will take on the role of word detectives to investigate spelling patterns and generate their own spelling rules.
In Maths, the children will be estimating and comparing numbers.
Enjoy the weekend!
