10th September 2018

This week the children have continued to develop their setting description; have improved their understanding of how to edit a piece of writing, using a range of skills. Within maths, they have gained an understanding of place value and the values of specific numbers before and after the decimal place. Our Challenge X is now underway and the children have shown amazing research skills to solve a question relating to Egypt.




 3rd September 2018

It is lovely to have the children back in school I have been overwhelmed with their effort and attitude towards their work, not only have they shown great resilience but they have made a conscious effort to understand how to answer specific questions across all areas of learning. We have started to read our class read ‘Cool’ and the children have made excellent predictions. Within writing, they have started to develop a clear understanding of and why we use specific vocabulary when writing a setting description. In Challenge X we have started to explore Egyptians and answer questions they produced.
