Hope you are well. We are in the final days of this half term but work goes on in 1LB!
As I am sure you all know the big news for this week is tomorrows assembly. I am looking forward to seeing you all there, it ought to be a good show!
But the assembly is not all that has happened this week:
We have been continuing our science work on plants and seasons this week. Learning about how the natural world changes throughout the year and what this means for the plants we have been learning about.
Some of you came on our trip this Monday to Kew gardens and I hope you had fun. The children seemed to enjoy their trip and it has certainly reinforced their knowledge of plants. I particularly enjoyed the being in a tropical environment even if it was only for 5 minutes before returning to the winter cold.
In Maths this week we have been continuing our work on subtraction, looking at different strategies to solve difficult subtraction equations. We have also been doing assessments for the new scheme of work for the first time. The ones I have marked so far suggest that the children are doing well and making great progress as mathematical geniuses.
In English we have been continuing our fairytales. Looking at traditional fairytales we have been discussing the role of heros in the end of stories. Children have done character descriptions of traditional heroes and started thinking of the kind of hero they would like to have in their own fairytale.
Have a great half term!
