In maths this month we have been learning all about money and measuring lengths. The children have particularly enjoyed buying items in the class shop, they were very good at recognising the coins and combining them to make different amounts. We have also been very busy measuring lengths.
Literacy this month has involved learning about non-fiction texts, we are excited to be producing our own non-fiction posters all about big machines.
In phonics we have continued to learn the phase three and five sounds.
In science we have been working towards achieving our “sense explorers” medals. To achieve these we have been completing five challenges each based around the five senses, we have tasted interesting foods, smelt different items, been on a sound walk and explored our sense of touch.
Our topic work has included learning all about the continents and oceans in geography, festivals in religious education and colour and printing in art. We have also really enjoyed comparing Victorian and modern day hospitals in history.
