Take a look at what we have been up to:

We had our second session in design technology today, and we all completed our puppets! I am SO pleased and thrilled with the outcomes and cannot express just how pleased I am with their efforts and stickability. Selina has very kindly taken them to her workshop to finalise our products before we get our masterpieces on Tuesday to celebrate our last day in Ash Class.

In Maths, we continued our theme of three-digit numbers. The children looked at patterns in the numbers, ordering them in size and completing blank patterns.

In our DT sessions, we began our first step in making felt puppets. Selina Rose came in to work with us, showing the children some of the products she’d made in the past, as well as an idea of what they could have by the end of their session! The children had to cut and draw around templates onto a piece of felt. They are going to continue them tomorrow and are excited to continue building them.

In PE this week, we looked at our throwing and kicking, polishing the skills that we’ve learnt over the year. Tom set up a range of different activities for the children which required them to throw or kick, using all skill types and this enabled the class to show what they could do. There was some friendly competition between the children in which they worked well with one another.
