What a funny week it has turned out to be! I don’t think any of us expected as much snow as we had – it was certainly very deep where I live in Broseley! I hope you all managed to get out and have some fun whilst it was here! It’s been great to see some of your snow pictures on Tapestry and the brilliant reading that’s been going on using the sound cards and tricky words! Looks like some of you have been VERY busy!
Before the snow arrived, in Drawing Club this week we looked at an episode of Tom and Jerry called ”Little Runaway’ from 1952 (I know Tom and Jerry animations were a firm favourite from our survey of parents and grandparents last term). The children thoroughly enjoyed the episode which started with a seal escaping from a circus and ending up in Tom and Jerry’s pond. They were brilliant at learning our ‘Get up, Stand up’ words – abscond, flabbergasted, dupe, scarper, imitate and capture and enjoyed drawing their pictures of the seal, alternative food to give him so he didn’t take Tom’s fish and designing a trap for Tom to catch him and get the reward money from the circus. There’s some great writing coming from these too as they write their magic words/phrases or write about what might happen to their picture.
In Maths we were looking at counting forwards and back from 10, talking about WHY a particular number was next and also looked at identifying MORE and FEWER and again talking about how we knew. The children are becoming more and more confident with this as we will always ask them WHY or how they know when they give an answer to ensure they have a good understanding.
In RE we have been talking about why Easter is important to Christians. As part of this last week we learnt about Lent, and this week we learnt about Palm Sunday.
Well done to our 10 readers who picked a prize from the Lucky Dip box on Monday for reading at least 5 times at home. This was our highest number yet! Well done! It would be great to see even more children winning a prize on Monday!
Have a lovely weekend and we will see you Monday morning!
