A brilliant first week back.
In maths, the children have been looking at money and even when they have found it hard, they have shown excellent determination and resilience. They looked at adding the money together using number lines, mental strategies and the column method and then had to solve how much change they would get back when they gave in a certain amount. By the end of the week, they had become confident in using these strategies.
In English, we have been studying a new text, which is a wishing story. The children have been learning the text and looking at what it is about and what the vocabulary means. Next week, they will focus on editing and improving the text to make it their own.
This week in topic, the children have been making their Stone Age houses and have supported one another in the process. Next week, they will evaluate their designs.
We are all looking forward to another good week.
