Friday 25th September
What a fabulous few weeks we have had being back in school! The kids have settled back in so well and are full of smiles each day. It is so lovely to be back to some kind of 'normal'!
We have started on our topic of 'Let's Unite' where we have already studied the geography of Tiverton, talked about the uses of the rivers around us and looked at the features of rivers. The children have made their own rivers using black bin liners and anything they could find around Geoff's outside office - you may have seen them if you are on the Wave gate. The children used the new technical vocabulary to explain what was happening to the water as it flowed down the slopes.
In our writing and reading sessions, the children have been studying 'A River' by Marc Martin. We have identified descriptive features that have been used to paint a picture in the reader's minds and tried to recreate a similar description to explain the journey of a river. They are really beginning to take shape. We hope that next week we will have some artwork to accompany their writing. We hope to post some of their work once they are complete so watch this space!
In maths, we have been revising our understanding of number including place value, rounding and negative numbers. We have tried to get outside to do our maths as much as possible whilst the weather is on our side!
I will be putting photos of the children's work onto the website from next week so you can keep up with what they are doing.
What an awesome start to a rather interesting year! :)
