This week in Hereford Class
This week we have started a new English journey on ‘Knuffle Bunny’. This is a story where a little girl loses her favourite soft toy. Our value of perseverance links well into this story whereby her dad doesn’t give up until it is found. We have already learnt the story and will now be boxing it up, retelling it and innovating it.
We continue with our place value unit this week where Y1 children are finding one more and one lesson of any given number and Y2 are comparing and ordering numbers using the less than, greater than and equals symbols. We have reinforced that the equals sign also means the same as so that children don’t get muddled when it appears at the start of the calculation.
Y1 are continuing with their transition in Dexter class in the afternoons and will join Hereford Class full time next week when the Dexters are in full time. Y2 are composers this week and have been looking at musical language. They will be composing their own music using percussion instruments this year and we will perform this next week.
We hope that BGs have a fantastic time at PGL – school will be very quiet without them!
