Take a break

This week we’ve been busy bees learning how to become more independent with our learning. In literacy we’ve been carrying out research using non-fiction texts as a start to this. Although we love using the internet to find things out, we’ve been learning how interesting and fun it can be using non-fiction texts instead! We have all chosen a topic to research so that we can create our own ‘fact’ book.

As part of learning how to become more independent, we have started our shoebox project, working from our independent designs from last week. We are creating a number of exciting environments inside them and just can’t wait to see the results and exhibit them! In maths we are reviewing our understanding of the four number operations, this week exploring methods for addition.

Over the next few weeks we will be exploring methods for subtraction, multiplication and division as well and making sure we all have at least one method we can rely on for each operation! Finally our enterprise project has also started! We have all been set the challenge to see how far we can make £1 grow! Watch this space! Thank you to everyone who has helped to make book club happen this week! Please do speak to Clare if you need any help with it.

*Some children would like support from home in sourcing a non-fiction book of their choice to help them with their literacy work. All books need to be accessible, without adult support. Your child will let you know if they need help finding a book. Thank you*
