Words of the week – we are introducing our children to new vocabulary every week. These words will be sent home on a weekly basis. Please ask your child what they mean and encourage them to use them as often as possible when speaking. 

Please encourage your child to read their reading book every night. We love to read in our school and believe ‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’

A child

A book

A read

A chat

That is the way the mind grows

Not with a test, but a tale…

We moved on to Addition and Subtraction within 10 and have found out about how whole numbers can be spilt into parts.

For our topic, Animals including Humans, we have been finding out about the parts of animals, types of animal groups and what animals eat. We finished off our topic by working out which ‘poo’ belonged to which animal. Can you remember what a carnivore, herbivore and omnivore eat?
