A great first week back!

It was lovely to see the children so refreshed after half term and ready for a new week! In Maths, we have  been learning about doubles. We have been thinking about what ‘double’ means and even created a long list of different ways to say double. We used cubes, column addition and hundred squares to support us when doubling two digit numbers.

In English, we have started our new topic based on Rapunzel. We read two different versions  of Rapunzel and compared the two. We were able to create a list comparing the differences and similarities between the two. We also wrote a character description using noun phrases to describe Rapunzel’s personality.

In Music, the children have started singing in rounds and are using the Solfege Hand Signs to learn the different notes. Have a look here for more information – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK_yQN83kUA

In History, we began learning about Grace Darling.  We watched a video that retold Grace Darling’s story and ordered the key events. The children discussed what it might have been like and thought about how Grace Darling was feeling throughout. They came up with some great vocabulary to describe her emotions throughout.

Thank you to all of those who took part in the half term Art project. We were amazed by how creative they were!
