Week beginning 13th September 2021

This week in English we’ve started planning our own stories based on the book we’ve been reading in class, Vlad and the Great Fire of London. We started by creating a story map and retelling the story to each other. We then created two brand new characters and described them using lots of adjectives. We will use our new main characters when we write our own stories next week! In Maths, we learned more about money by looking at all the different coins and learning about what they look like and how much they’re worth, and then adding different amounts of money together. Maybe you could look at some money together at home this weekend and talk about the different coins and their values? In Art this week, we had a brilliant time creating our Journey Sticks. We wrapped pieces of felt, pipe cleaners, string, beads and feathers around our sticks and talked about the journeys we took to collect them. They looked fantastic! In Science, we learned about the growth of human beings and we had to put the stages of human growth in the correct order. We also had an exciting RE lesson where we learned all about the Christian ceremony of baptism. What a fun week!

Week beginning 6th September 2021

The children have had a very exciting first full week back at school, and we’re so proud of them all for settling in so well! In English we started reading a new story called Vlad and the Great Fire of London. The story is all about a flea called Vlad and a rat called Boxton who escape from the Great Fire of London in 1666! We pretended to ask Vlad lots of questions, and then we wrote the questions down, remembering to use question marks. We also wrote descriptions of Boxton using lots of adjectives. In Maths we learned about 2-digit numbers and place value by finding the tens and ones in numbers, making the numbers using numicon, dienes and bead strings and counting in 10s from different numbers by adding 10. In Art we created dolls using lots of different materials like pipe cleaners, cotton wool, felt and string. They looked amazing! We started learning our new topic; Animals, including Humans, for Science by learning about different animals and their babies and how they grow from babies into adults. We also did some PSHE this week and talked about the things we might be worried about and what we can do to help ourselves feel better when we get worried.
