A busy last week of the half term

Over the last two weeks we have been busy learning about old toys.

Kate from Stevenage Museum gave the children a chance to talk about and handle some of the old toys from the museum. We set up our own toy museum and have looked at our favourite toys.

The children have planted bulbs and potatoes so we will be observing their growth over the coming weeks.

Maths has been focused on the understanding of numbers to 10 in both adding, taking away and working out parts of a number. The ability to verbalise our learning is a priority not only in maths but across our learning. The children tried using the Number bonds game on the Topmarks website to see how quickly they could recall the numbers that made 10.

Phonics is a crucial part of learning that helps towards becoming a confident and fluent reader. Revising the diagraphs we have covered so far would be beneficial for all children. To practise their reading the Bug Club books are an invaluable resource. The most fluent independent readers are the children who maximise this resource and the half term break is an ideal time to use this resource and read daily .

Our topic next term is houses so please make sure that you draw your house over the holiday and return it to school on Monday 24th.

Have a great half term break and we will see you all soon.
