Stars of the Day!
This week our stars have all been 'Handwriting Heroes' and have been setting a good example to their friends - well done!!
Keep up the hard work on your handwriting!
It was lovely to see everybody back in school on Monday morning. I hope you all had a lovely break and managed to make the most of having two weeks together. Now to enjoy our last few weeks together in Elephants...
This week and next we are working on the story 'The Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson. She is our focus author this term and so we will be doing lots of work around her stories.
We have learnt the story and acted it out in groups. We have written about our favourite characters and favourite parts of the story, using 'because' to explain why and adjectives to add description.
We finished off our learning on time this week, consolidating what we learnt prior to the break and then building on this. We have been learning to read and write o'clock and half past times. We have been thinking about turning clockwise and anti clockwise and how this makes time move on or backwards, helping us work out earlier and later times.
We also learnt about Eid today, finding out about who celebrates, why they celebrate and how they celebrate. Eid Mumbarak to those of you who are celebrating this weekend.
Have a lovely weekend.
See you all bright and early on Monday.
