This week we have been enquiring about special books linked to our RE topic. We started by sharing our own special books and identifying what makes them special to us. Then we looked at the special book for Christians and heard some stories from this. We noticed these weren’t just stories but contained messages and that they help Christians learn how God intended them to live. We then looked at the Jewish special book called the Torah. Finally, we finished by creating our own class special book for all of us to share.

We have been creating art work based on our topic of comparing a village to a town. We have used water colours to create a wash to make the background. We then built our picture by creating city skylines, after that we then laid the buildings over the background. Please do take a look at our finished work.

This week we have been exploring balancing positions in PE. We have learnt 5 positions: straight, straddle, pike, tuck and star. We began by learning these positions and then in partners we started to sequence them.

This week we have been comparing numbers. We are practising to say which number is more than and which number is less than. We made our very own ‘numbergator’ to help us do this. It has been great fun using practical resources and our ‘numbergator’ to make comparisons.

In Foxes this week, we have been really excited about our number learning. We have been using numicon and dienes to help us build numbers. We have also used these to partition numbers. We have been noticing that numbers are made up of tens and ones. Some of us have looked at partitioning numbers in different ways. We would love to share our understanding of partitioning with you!

We have settled into Foxes class over the last two weeks. We have been exploring fairy tales, building numbers and we have started to compare villages to towns. We especially enjoyed Roald Dahl day yesterday. In Key stage one, we focused on ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’. To begin with we made our sweet using craft materials. Then we labelled our sweets with describing words. We used these words to write sentences about our sweets. But all of this talk about sweets did make Miss Grover hungry.
