Friday 5th January 2018

Welcome back to school and we hope that you have all had a wonderful and restful Christmas break. 

The children have been telling us all about their holidays and today have written a recount. Despite the holiday they tried to remember to include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops! 

In maths today we have have been looking at different ways to make 5. Some children challenged themselves to work systematically and some also wrote subtraction calculations that make 5. Here are some examples: 

We have started our new topic about space. We have made mindmaps about what we already know and what we want to find out. Today the children have been finding out fats using the website DKFindout. We reminded children about using the internet safely and the children investigated different aspects of space to find facts that interest them. We will be continuing our learning about space during this half term and if your child is welcome to to bring in any books to share. 

We have also been making space vehicles. 

We hope you have a good weekend.
