Term 2 Week 6

Hello Everyone,

What a cold week it has been! Despite the chillier weather, Ivy Class have been superstars!
Let's start with a HUGE WELL DONE to our KS1 children for performing in their first ever Christmas production! I cannot emphasize enough how proud we are! :)

So what have we been learning?

This week in Maths has been all about ordering! We started the week by understanding what ordering is and how we order. The children recognise we can order from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest and we can order groups of objects as well as numbers! During the week, the children used their ordering skills to solve an "egg-cellent" investigation!

In Literacy this week, the children have begun to explore poetry. We read the story "Into the Forest" by Anthony Browne, where a boy decides if he should or shouldn't enter the forest. The children had to decide whether to stay or go and then write sentences using correct punctuation about their decision. They also had a go at writing a repetitive poem expressing why it is better to stay out of the forest!

In the afternoons, we have been identifying ways in which a festival is celebrated by Jewish people. We looked at the celebration of Hanukkah.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and the Ivy Team will see you Monday! :)
