It's been another week of sunshine and showers! Fingers (and toes, legs, arms... but not eyes) crossed the weather will start to get a bit more like the middle of May soon! This week, we have once again been busy, busy, busy in Elm Class.
In Literacy, the children have continued to explore non-fiction texts and have been consolidating their understanding of the features of this kind of writing. They have also started to think about writing their own non-fiction texts about African animals, and have been gathering all the information they need to be able to do this. Watch this space!
In Maths, it has been everyone's favourite topic; telling the time. Whilst the Year 1s have been focusing on telling the time to o' clock and half-past the hour, the Year 2s have been exploring quarter past and quarter to the hour, as well as five minute intervals. It has been tricky, but the children have shown excellent perseverance and have made some great progress through the week.
Our Foundation work has continued to be Science themed, and this week we have been thinking about the habitats of different animals. We found out that 'habitat' is a term we use to describe the place that an animal or plant lives, and we did a super job of working in Year 1/ Year 2 pairs to make lists of all the different habitats we could think of, before matching different animals to the correct habitats. Some wonderful team work and some wonderful ideas, too!
Have a fabulous weekend, everybody.
