In English, we have finished our character description work and we have moved onto a new genre – recounts. This week we are learning all about what a recount looks like and we have been using a checklist to identify features of different recounts. Eventually the children will be writing recounts about their Key Stage One visit to different farms, linked to our geography curriculum.
We had a fab time utilising our school wildlife garden for our science lesson this week. We were investigating local habitats and minibeasts. The children spotted slugs, wood lice, snails, spiders as well as lots of plants, trees, shrubs and bushes that haven’t started to die down after the Summer yet. When we got back into the classroom, the children were able to use their drawing and colouring skills to map out the wildlife garden.
This week, the children have received a paper copy of their homework, which they can work on and stick in their homework books! It would be great to see the work they achieve, uploaded to Seesaw.
Big well done for reading this week!
Class 2 were delighted to see their reading score rise from 50% last week to 90% this week. What an improvement!
There is currently a battle for the first class to reach 100% of children home reading, 3 times or more, on 3 consecutive occasions! Can Class 2 join the race next week?!
We can’t say a big enough thank you to the 3 families who hosted our farm visits this week. The children had the most amazing time and learned so much. Here are just a few of the photos we took!
