Weekly Round-up

It has been another busy week; the children have been working hard and enjoying their social time with their friends.

This week in English we have continued looking at instructions with a focus on the different features and imperative verbs. The children had a great time instructing their teachers to make a sandwich. Miss Worsfold got very messy as he class forgot to instruct her to use the knife to spread the butter!!

In Maths the children have been revisiting place value to 50 and comparing numbers using less than, greater than and equal to. We have done lots of active maths outside and around the classroom and it has been great to see lots of smiles and teamwork!

The reading raffle has started up again this week and was won by a child in class 3! Please remember to try and listen to your child read at least three times each week and record this in their reading diary. We take the reading diaries in on a Friday morning and those who have read at least three times get entered into the KS1 reading raffle. The raffle is drawn on a Thursday morning during the KS1 assembly and the winner selects a book to keep.
