Everyone has been very busy since returning from our half-term holiday. Here is a round-up of some of the things we have been learning about over the last 2 short weeks.
In numeracy we have been continuing to focus on multiplication and have explored how we can use the three times table to help us build the six times table. Our Number Talks are giving us the opportunity to revise addition strategies. We have been giving change from £1, £2 and £5 and it would be good if we could practise doing this in real life when out and about.
In our Emotions Work lessons we have been exploring the yellow ‘Triggers’ cog and discussing what might make us feel different emotions. We learned that some of us were scared by spiders and others were not. We worked well in small groups to play an emotions board game which helped us think about some triggers for different emotions.
In French, to complete a task labelling parts of the body, we used the new vocabulary that we have been learning through songs and games. We found this quite challenging so we will keep practising the words in different ways in our 5 minutes a day of French. This week our 5 minutes included a French disco!
We are thoroughly enjoying our Viking topic and have been learning about Viking longhouses. Ask us about some of their features and see if we can remember. Watch this space, our very own 3D longhouses will be coming soon!
We got to meet our new teacher Mrs Rutter who will be starting with us on the 2nd of March. She seems lovely!
