This week in Hereford Class
It's the penultimate week of the first term. Children are now into the swing of things and are used to the routines, especially those in Year 1 where it is all new to them. I imagine you are going to have some very tired children over the half term break. Only 10 more school days children.
This week in Maths, we are looking at number lines. Year 1 are understanding the number line to 20, thinking about different representations of number and apply these. Year 2 are estimating numbers on a number line. These children have been thinking about half way points to help them estimate where a number might go.
In English, we are writing and retelling the story of 'Not Now Bernard' by David McKee in our own words. Children are retelling the story in stages, using new grammar and punctuation being taught.
In the Amberley Immersion Curriculum we are finishing off our PSHE journey. There was so much to fit in this week that we are spilling into next week to ensure we have the coverage and understanding of all concepts taught.
We are really enjoying computing where we are looking at Information Technology (IT) around us and how it often benefits us. We have been naming the different parts of computers and laptops and every week the children shout out 'MOUSE!' in a bid to make me scream, but they're remembering a computer's parts very well. We will be discussing using a computer safely, especially when working online, which we have also touched upon during PSHE.
In RE we are continuing our work on The Creation Story and thinking about how grateful we are for the world. We will be thinking about ways that we can personally help, reflecting on last week's work...'The best thing about the world is..." and we will be looking at the Islamic Creation story, discussing similarities and differences to the Christian Creation Story.
