Welcome to Daisy Class!
We have a had a great start to the year! our Monsters topic has been a big hit with the children and has provided some great learning opportunities.
In literacy our activities have been based on the story Morris the Mankiest Monster. The children have been using descriptive vocabulary to describe Morris and his house. They then created a friend for Morris, described the friend and then described the setting that they designed for him or her. Morris has provided a lot of fun for Daisy Class and we are looking forward to some more monster learning in the next few weeks.
In maths we have revisited place value and used this to compare numbers. We have also been using the greater than and less than symbols (< and >) to help us compare.
In geography we are learning about water sources. So far we have looked at swamps and marshes, rivers and streams.
In art we have used oil pastels to produce some amazing pictures of Morris. We have also designed our own monsters that we hope to make out of clay over the next few weeks.
Our Star Awards have gone to Jack and Saxin. The Reading Award was presented to Finley and the Kindness Cup to Benjamin. Well done to all of those children! Our class pet, Daisy the Duck-billed Platypus, had a lovely weekend with Luca last weekand and has now gone to spend some time with Esther.
