Following our visit from Jimmy the Tortoise last Friday, in English this week, we have been planning and writing a recount of his visit. The children have been using words such as, first, next, then and finally to describe the day.
In maths this week the children have been learning about comparing amounts and numbers. We are very good at using the words “greater than” and “less than”. We watched “Numberblocks – Blockzilla” and then made our own “Blockzilla” monster symbols to try out. The children should have brought those home to tell you all about them. Here is a clip of Blockzilla. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GQtIUEEeRE
We hate to use the “C” word in October but the children have been busy designing and making their Christmas cards this week. We will be sending out a letter as soon as they are ready and you will be able to place an irder online. The order deadline is Wednesday 16th October and the artwork will need to be returned by this date so it can be sent off to print.
