In English, we have been learning the Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We used the talk for writing approach using actions to help us memorise the story in order to retell it. This week we have written our own version of the story with some of us changing the characters. Mrs Newman is so proud of us all for how hard we have tried with our writing.  Here is an example of some of our work this week. We are now going to focus on developing our handwriting to make our writing even better.

We have been using concrete resources to help us compare numbers. We have started using the symbols for greater than, less than and equals to show how numbers relate to one another. To help us with our learning we watched the 'Blockzilla' episode of number blocks. Please watch at home and encourage your child to discuss what Blockzilla explains.

In Religious Education, we have been learning about the Christian belief of Creation. Today we went on a scavenger hunt around our school grounds to find things that Christians believe God made. Some of our children who follow the Christian faith, confidently shared with their classmates what they had learnt at church about the Creation Story.
