In English, we have been busy working hard reading our new Read Write Inc texts in our different groups. We have been focusing on spelling using the sounds we know and our Fred Fingers and have been practising our letter formation.

In Maths, we have developed our knowledge of number bonds by using numicon and cubes to investigate all of the ways to make 10. We have also looked at finding 1 more and less than a number before really challenging ourselves and finding 2 and 10 more and less.

In Science, we have been exploring the human body. We have been comparing similarities and differences of different animals bodies and our body. There was lots to discover and the children had fun looking at the different animals.

In Topic, we are focusing on our topic Victorian Britain. We have looked at Victorian houses and their features. We noticed a lot of similarities and some of the children have realised that they live in a house that was built during the Victorian times.

In R.E, we have been looking at the Jewish festival of Sukkot. We found out all about it and then designed our own Sukkah for our friends and family to come and eat in.

Our Learning Hero of the Week this week was Cherish for showing resilience in her phonics and building up her confidence in using her voice. Well done Cherish. 

Our Championship Point winner was James. Well done for collecting those points up James!

Our Championship Team winner was Self-Belief. Well done for working as a team!

Percy the Panda went home with Marley this week. We can’t wait to see what they’ve both been up to.
