Wow, what a different school week than usual. Willow went live this week and I’m super impressed with how they all took it on! Many were engaged and prepared to follow our new ‘class’ rules as we got to grips with ‘hands up’ and ‘mute’ and all the other controls that come with zoom video calls. It was a full timetable and the children delved in to our usual lessons and were focussed on their learning.
In English we began our new Return Narrative unit based on the true story of ‘Jemmy Button’. They enjoyed thinking of expanded noun phrase and exploring the text. Next week we will begin writing some descriptions to prepare ourselves for innovating each paragraph of the story.
In Maths we started a short unit on money, Willow class impressed me with their knowledge of coins and adding together different amounts. Next week we will start subtracting amounts and then we will move back to our unit of further multiplication and division.
Well done Willow Class, keep it up!
