Team AK have had an extremely busy half term! We enjoyed learning about different materials, including how they are used, changed and recycled. We also went around school looking for what particular materials had been used for. In maths, we have done lots of practical activities to reinforce our concepts of number and we also solved problems in teams, talking through our thinking with each other. In literacy, we have worked on lots of skills, including the correct uses of apostrophes and adding suffixes to words. We have worked on re-telling stories and writing some of our own, using adjectives to make them interesting. Of course, this included the Nativity story! Our own Nativity, ‘Born in a Barn’ was a huge success, even if we say so ourselves. The children did all of us and themselves proud. Enjoy some well-deserved time with your children and bring them back well rested and ready for lots more learning!
All the children have now settled into their new class and we have been very busy this term. Our focus for literacy has been Traditional Stories where we have looked at lots of different stories. We have read stories, acted out stories, Looked at the different characters, settings, and talked about what is the same and what is different about them.
In maths we have looked at place value and we are starting to see how this helps us with our addition and subtraction.
We have really enjoyed looking at our local area and what can be found there. We have also looked at different materials and sorted what things are made out of.
