What we've been doing this week

In maths we have been investigating money. We looked at the different coins and learned that to help us add up the coins we can count in 2,5 and 10's! The children enjoyed playing shopkeepers and working out change from up to 20p.  

In English we have been making our own similes and performing them on our new stage. We have created some Spring poetry, we have used adjectives and even included some similes in our writing! The children did some fantastic handwriting too and used their senses to create the poems. 


In Mission we have been creating our extreme weather booklets for Blob to teach him about weather on Earth. We included information about our chosen weather, how to stay safe, title, author, front cover and blurb on the back. The children will share their booklets with the Acorn class next week. 

Wow moments!

 We have a wonderful trip to the National Railway Museum in York. The children were very well behaved and learnt lots of facts about Stephensons Rocket.
