This week in Hereford Class
This week we are really excited to be writing our own versions of ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy. The children have worked really hard to retell, order and box up the story. We are spending some time on comprehending the story before breaking it down and writing the separate parts. (Beginning, middle and end for Year 1 children and opening, build up, problem and resolution for Y2)
We are moving onto addition this week. Y1 will look at adding within 20 whilst Y2 will be adding 1 digit numbers to two digit numbers. We are looking forward to sharing this learning with Mr Beech and Miss Cale when they come into our classroom on Wednesday.
In RE we are looking at the Shahada, which are the words of the Muslim declaration of faith. The children really enjoyed listening to stories of the Prophet Muhammad and were able to explain why he was important to Muslims.
Last week, in history, we looked at Neil Armstrong and this week we will be studying Christopher Columbus and Sir Tim Berners-Lee. We will look at what they became famous for, and understand chronology by ordering their life events.
A reminder that children can come to school in their PE kits on both Thursday and Fridays.
We are providing children with break time snacks and whilst you are welcome to provide them for your child, we do have plenty of fruit to go around.
