Weekly News - 17.01.20

Special Books

We hope you have all had a lovely start to the New Year. The children have settled back quickly into school life and we have had another wonderful week.


This week in maths we have been looking at number and place value. Wee started the week by learning to group objects into 10. We then used dienes blocks to explore how many groups of 10 given numbers have. For example, 15 has 1 group of ten and 5 1's and 20 has 2 groups of 10 and no ones.  The children learning to represent this using apparatus and by drawing sketches. 


This week in topic we have had R.E week. We have been learning all about special books. The children initial thought about what books they have at home that are special to them. We then learnt what a Holy Book was and why they are so important to some people. We then looked at the names of different Holy books and which religions they belong to.

Next week we will be starting our Topic 'How are you?'. In this topic, we will be learning about keeping healthy and eating the right foods. We will learn about the importance of exercise and what germs are and how we can be hygienic. We will learn about the doctors that discovered medicines and illnesses from the past. We will also learn about countries that do not have enough water.

In maths, we are moving back to addition addition and subtraction. We will look at using a number line and a hundred square to add and subtract, as well as mental methods we can use.
