Friday 27th January 


This week in English we have been writing our own stories! We planted a seed on Tuesday which will hopefully grow into some beautiful marigolds. Then we talked about what we would plant if we could have a magic tree like the monster in our story. We have started writing our own stories about our magic tree which we will finish next week. The children are hoping for chocolate, x box games, squishmellows and doughnuts, amongst other things, to grow on their trees!


In maths we have began to look at adding numbers to 20. We have ordered numbers to 20 and counted on using a number line. Today we begun looking at the tricky concept of adding 10 more. We will continue with this next week too. 


Thank you for all the boxes you've sent in, they will be put to good use the next few art sessions! 


A small reminder: 

Please bring all reading books back into school on Wednesday as the books are used in our guided reading sessions before being sent home. It is really important books come back as they are used across the Key Stage. If they are not returned there is not enough for guided reading in school. Please note, you do not need to bring your child's books in until Wednesday, then the book bag will remain in school until Friday.
