Welcome Back!

Its been lovely to welcome everyone back after the Easter Break. We have dived straight into our new topic of The BFG and the children have really enjoyed it. We are lucky to be able to refer to the book by Roald Dahl and the recent movie for inspiration. The children came up with some excellent descriptions of the road outside where Sophie's orphanage is. They also worked in groups of three to come up with the best descriptive sentence that they could.

We have been learning to tell the time. We practised o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to and the children bacem far more confident. They need to be able to identify the 'past' and the 'to' sides of the clock to help with this. We then went on to thinking about telling the time to 5 minute intervals. The children were able to use their knowledge of counting in 5s to do this. They need to remember to count on or back from the 12 using the numbers on the clock as 'stopping points'.
