St. Faustina wk beginning 1.11.21

Published by KPinchbeck on

It has been lovely to see the children back in school this week well rested and eager to learn.

In Maths they have been looking at addition and have been doing this through partitioning and then combining using the part part whole model. They have learnt what the addition symbol looks like and have been using this to create addition equations.

In English they have loved being introduced to our new text for this half term ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. The children were surprised to see a mystery suitcase appear in the classroom at the beginning of the week containing items such as an umbrella, a toy penguin, a map, a sandwich and a telescope. They used these clues to guess who the suitcase might belong to and what they story might be about. The focus for their writing over the next few weeks will be a character description based on the boy in the book.

On Wednesday we had another Forest School session. Although it was a chilly day, this did not stop the children from having fun…

Our new topic in Science is ‘Seasonal Changes’, in our first lesson we discussed the four seasons and the changes we might expect to see throughout the year. We talked about typical weather, the hours of daylight, the changes in the trees and the clothes that might be worn. In this session we mostly focussed on Autumn.

Finally, congratulations to our certificate winners for this week…
