It has been an eventful and busy week in O1 and the children have been working very hard.
We started out week off by reading the story 'We're going on a lion hunt' by David Axtell. During the story we focused on the different characters and the things they did in the book. This was then followed up by the children thinking of their own characters. They took their time to imagine different features and traits that were then drawn and written about in their literacy books. Some fabulous work was done and the children showed they enjoyed creating interesting characters.
In our maths lessons the children started the tricky concept of halving numbers and looking at what numbers could be halved. They were shown how to count the items accurately and then split them between two people. This was repeated a number of times and the children were also encouraged to independently halve objects to 20. They worked hard and showed that the was a good understanding within the class.
The children also went to Queens college as part of the sports partnership program. They were well behaved as we walked to and from the school and took part in a range of activities that were led by the pupils there. The children have shown that they are learning the appropriate behaviours expected and represented the school well.
Finally, we have also looked at the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah in a school assembly and the children enjoyed trying the honey cake that was on offer during their snack time.
