We have had a great week!


In maths, we have completed our first unit of work: Place Value. To finish our place value unit, we have been counting in 5s, 10s and 3s this week. Show someone at home what you can do:


Counting in 5s:

Counting in 10s:


Remember, we can count in 10s from any number. We change the tens but the ones stay the same:


Counting in 3s:


In English, we have been learning our new model text: How to Trap a Dragon! Blaze has been doing lots of mischevious things around the classroom, so Mrs Taylor-Day wrote instructions on how to trap him. Can you tell someone about our instructions? We have also been looking at using time conjunctions and imperative verbs (bossy verbs). Can you spot them in the instructions below:


First, brush your teeth. 

Next, read a story. 

Finally, go to sleep. 


Here is the song to help us remember imperative verbs:


In topic, we have been learning about the Industrial Revolution during the 1800s when lots of factories were built. Lots of people moved to the city to live. We looked at the jobs people had during this time and the advantages and disadvantages of the Industrial Revolution. Can you remember any of these?




This week, we were so lucky to meet Dexter the Dog from Derbyshire Fire Services. We asked his owner lots of questions about his job. We also met Ginny the fire dog. She was very cuddly!
