In English we have been immersing ourselves in poetry – listening to poems, joining in with reading poems, discussing poems and writing poems. It’s been a busy week! We will be continuing this focus next week. We have tried to use plenty of adjectives in our work, and discussed how this can make our writing richer, and more interesting to read.

In Maths we have been developing our skills in counting in 2s, 5s and 10s – counting up to 100, and back, and also starting at different points. We have been relating this to counting in practical situations and how counting in groups makes this easier and quicker.

Looking at the children’s baby photographs was a real highlight of the week – thank you so much for sending these in.  We had a wonderful time looking at the pictures and discussing who was who! We discussed how the boys had changed and compared things that they could do now that they weren’t able to do as babies.
