Our learning this week


Monday 26th February - Friday 1st March


In Literacy we started our new book ‘The Something’ which we have been using as the stimulus for our writing. We discovered a hole in the playground and tried to guess what was in the hole and who may have made the hole. We then thought about the hole underneath the cherry tree in our story. Who could have made that hole? Do they live in the hole? We then wrote sentences such as. ‘In the hole is…..’.


In Numeracy we stated the unit 6, 7 & 8. We have been learning to count objects up to 8, subertise and write the numbers 6, 7 & 8. 

For our ‘Big picture’ work we started the topic ‘Animal Crackers’. This week we talked about how to look after our pets. Richard Best a local vet brought his dog Dorcus. We did observational drawings of Dorcus who then signed some of our pictures with his paw print. 

Next week we will have a visit from a couple more pets. On Tuesday we will have 2 horses visit the school and on Friday a parent has kindly offered to will bring in their Guinea pigs. If your child has any allergies please let the school know.
