We are really enjoying our new English topic of 'Avocado baby' where a new baby is born and is really weak. However, once it has been fed avocado, he becomes really strong and can perform all sorts of impossible tasks, which we found hilarious. We have been ordering, boxing up and retelling the story in our own words, before we innovate and make it our own. In maths we have been continuing with our topic of place value where we have been representing numbers using pictures, objects and apparatus including the number line and coins. Y1 have joined Hereford class full time and have been enjoying the foundation subjects. We have been looking at Islam and the prophet, Muhammed and how stories and his teachings help Muslims live their lives. We are looking at materials in science where we will then look at the suitability of materials - we have a fun, hands on experiment to complete later on in the term. We will be holding a phonics evening in the final week of term. As English Lead, Miss Holden will be sending out a letter inviting you to attend to help you support your children at home, with their phonics. A polite reminder to please return our trip permission slip and contribution for Sevington Victorian School.
