Hello and thank you for visiting our page and reading our class news this month.
Everyone has settled back into school and we have been excited about learning lots of new things in our class.
Take a peek at what we have been learning in the past few weeks!
When we returned from our holidays, we got busy learning about measure.
We have learned about length. We had so much fun measuring the length of different things using non-standard units of measure. We loved going outside to measure the garden and playground when the sun was shining.
We also measured how heavy and light different objects were, using the balance scales in our classroom. We learned what it means if two objects balance.
And finally. . . . capacity. We used non-standard units of measure to see how many cups/jugs/bottles of water it would take to fill different containers. It was fun and wet!
This week we have started learning about money. The children will be learning to identify different coins and talk about their value.
Our project this term is Toys.
The children had a very special visitor in the garden recently! Paddybear, our classroom teddy, appeared in the garden after lunch one day! He had a letter for the children. We don`t know how he got there but we were very excited to go to the garden and read the letter he wrote especially for our class!
Paddybear asked us to write about our favourite toys and draw a picture. He also wants us to take care of him. The children have been writing letters to Paddybear and placing them beside him. I am sure he loves reading them.
We love reading Bible Stories. We read the story “The Ten Lepers”
The children liked the leper who went back to thank Jesus for helping him. We talked about people who help us and then we made a puppet of the Leper who went back to thank Jesus.
In the coming weeks…..
We will continue to learn about money.
The children will continue to learn to identify different coins and talk about their value. They will also learn to find totals within 20p and will learn to select coins to pay for items. The boys and girls will have a shop in the classroom where they can be customer and shopkeeper.

- Stick them on your bedroom wall and shine a light on a word
- You can even hide them in a room for your child to find!
Have fun learning at home!
