Here we are at the end of another jam-packed week, with both Remembrance Day and Children in Need adding to all of our usual activities. I think we all need a well deserved rest this weekend!
In Literacy this week, the children have been using their imaginations to create their own alien characters for a story they will be writing next week. To start the week they made sketches of what their alien would look like and gave them a 'nonsense' name, made up of their phonic sounds. They then wrote about what their alien looked like, how it moved and what it ate. To end the week, the children used a 'story mountain' to help them plan the beginning, middle and end of their stories. We can't wait to read the finished stories next week!
In Maths, the Year 1s have been using Numicon and tens frames to represent different numbers up to 50, and the Year 2s have continued to think about money and working out the total cost of different toys from our Elm Class Toy Shop. They have especially enjoyed using the 'Toy Shop Money Game' on the Topmarks website, which you might want to explore at home.
In the afternoons this week, we have continued to learn about the world's favourite toy, Lego! The children wrote some lovely facts about the founder of the Lego company, Ole Kirk Christiansen, and have also enjoyed the new Lego that has arrived in the classroom as part of our continuous provision.
Have a look at the photos below to see if you can spot yourself or your friends!
Have a lovely weekend, everybody.
