We are extremely proud of all Willow Class's achievements this half term.
They have been fantastic mathematicians and are getting to grips with three-digit numbers and explaining what they have learnt using mathematical language. They have written thoughtful and well-observed poems and have also written interesting, well-researched biographies. They have acquired new knowledge in geography about different settlements and we are hoping to put that knowledge to the test with a walk around our settlement - North Tawton.
In our PE sessions, Mr Berry has been focusing a lot on teamwork and how to ensure they can work together constructively as a team. They have also been learning lots of ball skills and playing mini games against each other. In PSHE, we have looked at different emotions and family life.
I hope you have a fantastic break over the half term. There is no home learning for the half term but please keep reading!
Have a great break.
I hope you are well. It is looking lovely again outside.
It was lovely to speak to so many of you on Parents Evening. Thank you for making the time.
The children have earned a lot of Dojos and Class Nuggets this week. They have shown outstanding behaviour, as ever, lots of perseverance and a real maturity in our class discussions. We are continuing our learning about addition and subtraction. We have looked at what happens when you add ones and tens to a three-digit number. We are using place value and number facts to help us. In English, we have been practising writing biographies by writing about a Stone Age boy or girl. We have also been writing a day in the life of someone from the Stone Age in history. We started out Geography learning by learning about why people might live in a village, town or city.
For next week, the children are continuing with addition and subtraction. We are writing our own biography. If the children would like to choose someone, they have a sheet for homework to do this. Please fill this out and bring it back on Monday. I have really enjoyed seeing all the great home learning today in the books I had.
Hope you have a great rest of the week and weekend.
