Harvest Cooking

Thank you to everyone who helped Ash Class when cooking for the Harvest celebration. They all had a great time and the school smelt rather nice.

English

We had some superb writing from Ash Class this week. The children finalised their bubble adventure writing and I was so pleased with the outcome. In the later part of the week, we looked at common and proper nouns. We used some different actions to help us remember and recognise how they’re different.

Maths

I’ve been so thrilled with the children’s efforts this term in Maths. In particular, this week we looked at the inverse and the outcomes were brilliant. It’s not often that children find the inverse easy, but this year, they do! They EVEN haven’t wanted to stop doing it since! Later on in the week we used related facts to help us make larger numbers.

Science

This week in Science, the children continued looking at deciduous and evergreen trees/plants. They also began their experiment growing plants in different conditions.

PE

Tom conducted a big carousel in PE this week. The children continued to develop their skills to complete this accurately.

Art

… and we have some planets!! WOW they look incredible. What amazing skills and focus the have shown this week! I can’t wait to get them on a display for you to see.

Useful Links

Here you will find a useful website, should you be interested in finding more interesting texts for your children to read. You can browse by age so that you know they’re appropriate, as well as finding some above or beneath. Sharing stories with your children is such a powerful tool and can accelerate their reading, vocabulary, writing and general outlook.
