This week we have been reading ‘Flo of the Somme’ a story telling us about how animals helped during World war 1. The children quickly recognised that Flo was a medical dog, due to her uniform and they also made connections to our previous book ‘Where The Poppies Now Grow’. The children recognised characters and made some very good predictions. These texts link to our history work, where this week we have been learning about the experiences of soldiers on the front line in WW1 and what their lives were like.
In maths we have been learning about 1 more and finding 1 more in different contexts, on number tracks, objects and outside. We have been counting backwards ready to take away and using lots of problem solving strategies to help us.
We have continued our work on everyday materials and the children are very good at identifying them and their properties. we had lots of fun describing materials and their properties from a feely bag. the children used brilliant scientific vocabulary! We have also looked at materials during our outdoor learning sessions. Please remember to send your child in a coat everyday as we are often outside.
Please remember to read both books and bring them into school each day as we read in class daily.
Enjoy the weekend
