This week we have started our new unit in English! We are writing to describe, with the purpose to write our own stories, which we will be reading to year ones at the end of the half term. We have focused on exploring the book ‘Journey’ By Aaron Becker. I wonder if your child can tell you something special about this book?
We have been exploring new vocabulary and new skills through talking about the different feelings and emotions the character has in the story. We have then developed our thinking and writing skills by describing the settings in the story.
You can watch a video of the book here: Journey by Aaron Becker
In Maths we have started our next unit of addition and subtraction. We started the unit with exploring fact families.
In phonics this week we have been learning the /-y/ spelling for the ‘ee’ sound.
In science we have been focusing on the scientific skill of classifying. We classified different objects into the materials they have been made out of. This was a fun investigating session where we also talked about the different properties of these materials and why they have been chosen for the object.
In RE we have been looking at special foods and how some religions have foods which are symbolic to them. This has been a great exploration of foods we find special and looking at the religious side to things.
