In English our writing has been inspired by the book 'Here Comes Frankie' by Tim Hopgood. The book tells the story of a lonely boy who takes up playing the trumpet which in turn transforms his life into a colourful and wonderful place. We are now enjoying a short unit on poetry.
In maths we have looked at more than and less than and one more and one less. We have also learnt new vocabulary in the use of greater than and less than. We have taken our maths outside and jumped around the playground finding numbers greater and less than. We have had lots of hands on fun with the cubes and maths equipment.
In phonics we have discovered some new sounds like a-e, ee and ay and the difference between oi and oy. We have played lots of games and learnt how to sound out using our robot arms.
We do RE with Ms Moreland. We have looked at the difference between Jewish and Christian weddings and religious symbols and talked about making promises. We very much enjoyed the wedding between the owl and they pussycat.
We also do art with Ms Moreland in which we have been inspired by Van Gogh’s sunflowers. We have also made work for our 'Here Comes Frankie' display.
In Geography we are finding out all about the United Kingdom including the differences between cities and the countryside and all about our capital London.
