Excitement levels are increasing in class as we continue to practise for our Christmas nativity which takes place next week. The children are all doing well to learn their lines and movements on and off the stage.
In maths, we have been learning about subtraction and repeating patterns. We have been using our knowledge of repeating patterns to help with our Christmas decorations. The school is looking truly festive!
We had some help from the P6s this week. They helped us with some online number games.
We are continuing to work on previous sounds, new sounds and blending. P6 also helped with our reading this week.
This week we have been exploring strategies for subtraction in numeracy. We have been practising using a number line and using known facts. This has helped us in our independent work and also when we are playing games with our peers.
We enjoyed exploring shape in art, looking at a variety of artists who used shape in their work. We tried to recreate our own version of Kandinsky’s circles using pastels and complementary colours. Although it was very messy we had great fun!
As part of our STEM area this week, we had the train set which was really popular with our class. There was some super teamwork and problem solving alongside some great imagination deciding where the trains were travelling to!

Lucas “I liked art because it was out of this world!”
Archie “I Liked gymnastics because I learned how to do a cartwhell.”
