What we've been doing
In English we are looking at The Jolly Christmas Postman. We have come up with some ideas of how we could extend the story and have looked at the style which the story is written in. We then chose key words and came up with rhyming words as the story is a rhyming book.
In Maths we have been looking at the formal method of subtraction, I have been really impressed with the children's resilience when learning new things and tackling new challenges.
In Mission we have had an art week looking creating bonfire, remembrance day and winter art work for displays.
In PE the children have started dance and tag rugby. Miss England told me that they performed some fantastic winter themed dances.
We are enjoying our whole class reading book 'The Firework Makers Daughter' and are eager to find out what happens next.
In English we have moved on to looking at diary entry's and have done some drama work to help us prepare for becoming the character of the Jolly Christmas Postman and writing our own diary entry.
In Maths we have been looking at the inverse and missing number problems applying our addition and subtraction knowledge.
In Mission we have been looking at local Artist Lucy Pittaway and her style of art work. We will soon be creating some of our own art work in the style of Lucy Pittaway
We had a lovely day on Friday for Children in Need and raised lots of money too!
