What a fabulous week we’ve had!
World Book Day was on Thursday and we enjoyed sharing fun stories together, doing wordsearchs, making page buddies for our book marks. We really enjoyed going on a book scavenger hunt where we searched for characters or settings in different books.
Play the job mixing game – read the description then change the characters outfit to fit. https://1c7951e0f713f82c10d3-9c5e6fbd2c9d828eb37b6bf0399bddd6.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/job-mixer/index.html

We have been looking at apostrophes this week. We know they have two uses; one is to show belonging e.g. Tom’s cat, the other is to replace letters in a contraction e.g. do not = don’t.

We have been looking at subtraction this week. We know that we can solve subtraction calculations with take-away, but we can also ‘find the difference between’ the numbers.

Design and Technology:
We have been practising our sewing skills this week. It has been a HUGE challenge but we persevered brilliantly! We have been practising threading a needle, and then two different types of stitches – running stitch or over stitch.

We are looking at materials and their properties. This week we’ve enjoyed discussing properties and what the material is best used for e.g. could glass make a suitable chair?
