Week 11th-14th February 2019
We have had an amazing week!
We have been learning how to write instructions to make a cucumber sandwich and then today we made and ate them!
We have been superhero mathematicians this week - recalling number bonds to 10 and 20 and show the addition and subtraction facts for these numbers.  We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using money and objects and today we have been partitioning and combining numbers using dienes to help us.
This morning we visited the Life Bus and we talked about diffferent food groups and what makes a healthy diet.  We were able to see inside the human body and look at the journey our food makes to give us energy.  We then learned about sleep and excercise and being kind to our friends.  It was a really fun session and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.
Completing this busy half term with a Forest School session was a great way to end the school week. The children have been building dens, learning how to use tools safely and making their own Forest School wands!
Forest School will be every other Thursday, so please remember their wellies and waterproof clothing for these sessions.
We have put a little bit of maths homework in the homework books this week and the details of a project on saving water linking to our Eco Schools topics, so hope you have fun deciding what project you will do over half term.
We hope you have a great week off and let's hope the weather is as good as it's been today!
