Welcome back to Term 2 - Paddington Goes to London


We have had a brilliant day today learning about the life of GB athletes Amy Smith and Richard Buck.  We enjoyed doing lots of activities with them.  Photo's to be added soon.  Their inspirational stories got us thinking about what we would like to be when we are older.  


We have sent home letters about all of the parts for our Christmas play this year.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  Please feel free to buy costumes from the shops if you would like to.  



Please can all children have winter PE kits in school as it is getting colder.


Our Learning.



We have been learning all about Place Value.  

  • We have been counting to and from 20.  
  • We have been comparing groups of objects using language such as more, less, equal.  
  • We have been learning how numbers can be digits, words and pictures.
  • We have been deepening our understanding through problem solving and explaining why and how we came to the answer.



We have been exploring Rhyme and Poetry this week.



We are revising our High Frequency words this week ready for assessment week. 



In science we have been learning about the materials.

  • We will be exploring different materials and their purposes as well as experimenting with materials.
