England Class - Spring 2 Newsletter
Wow! It feels like we have blinked and the half term is over! What a lovely half term we have had in England class.
In English, the children wrote their own bee fact files, comprised of their own bee facts that they learnt in school or for home learning. This week, the children have finished their innovated story for our story of The Sleepy Bumblebee. They chose their own place Mr Bumblebee could try to sleep but unfortunately Mr Bumblebee kept being disturbed from his slumber!
In maths, we have begun to explore the composition of numbers to 10 and we will continue this into next term. The children have been using comparative language to describe when measuring different lengths, heights and capacities. We found it particularly funny when measuring eachother using objects around the classroom.
In RE, we have read many Bible stories from the New Testament, exploring how Jesus told these stories to teach us about God and how to live our lives. We have also learnt about the most important time in the Church year, Easter.
In our topic afternoons, the children designed, made and evaluated their own bookmarks using hessian, wool and a sewing needle. We are beyond impressed with all the children, the care and determination they showed to complete their book marks to such a high standard has been amazing to see. We also explored the natural world, observed and drew what we could see while in the forest area. We have practised taking turns, being able to wait for what we want and to keep trying when things are tricky.
Well done England Class!
Have a lovely Easter break,
Miss Stephens and Mrs Rimmer
