The children have continued their bright start to the new school year and I am really pleased. They have really grasped all of the new routines and different ways of doing things.
In English the children have continued to work on the 'Monsters' topic. They have looked at 'Morris the Mankiest Monster' and 'Monstersaurus'. They have worked hard on their descriptive writing and how to use adjectives. Their writing is improving all the time and they are really good at understanding what they need to do to improve. They have also written a letter and understood well what was needed to ensure that the letter made sense and followed a particular sequence.
In maths the children have continued on with work on numbers. They are well practised at comparing numbers and understanding how to split 2 digit numbers into 10s and 1s. This week they have been thinking about number facts and relating things that they already know to new facts. It would still be useful for them to continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and to remember how vital it is to count objects (10s and 1s included) accurately as 1 small mistake can bring an incorrect answer.
We have thought about materials in science and the different properties that different materials have. They thought hard about different objects and why they are made of particular materials.
We have also thought about resolving conflict and being safe with medicines in PSHE. They all made a poster to show all the things that they have learnt.
