We have had a great first week back after the half term, and it is sad to say that this is our final half term together! We have worked really hard this week, especially on our Phonics Screening Check where we have been identifying some real and nonsense words! The children have all worked so hard with this activity and we are so proud of them - well-done Hedgehogs! Look below to see what we have been doing this week. 



In our Maths learning, we have been continuing with our fractions work and we have been practising quartering shapes and amounts. We have also moved onto our Place Value work and we have been exploring numbers up to 100. We have been working on partitioning numbers into tens and ones by understanding that the first number in a two-digit number is the tens value and the second digit is the number of ones that number has. See if you can have a go at partitioning the numbers below into tens and ones. 


Alternatively, you can go on these websites to practise partitioning numbers into tens and ones, or practise recognising numbers using tens and ones.



In our English learning, we have been learning a new type of text called the Storm Whale. It is a beautiful book about a lonely boy who discovers an abandoned, little whale on the beach near his house. This week, we have created a story map together, boxed up the story, and even acted out the story. You can find our story map below, and some of the fantastic actions that we created! Can you tell your grown-up the story of the Storm Whale?  




In our Topic work this week, we have been observing the seeds that we planted before half term. Mrs Wain very kindly took them home to look after them and they have grown so much! Most of the plants now have sprouts, stems, roots and leaves. We have also been exploring our new forest school and we have been identifying and finding some wild plants in our forest school. We learnt that wild plants are plants that grow without the need to look after them and they are not planted by humans. Can you see any of these plants around your garden or in a local park? See which one is the most common!



Here are some photos of our wild plant hunt!

I could not choose a specific someone to receive Star of the Week, because they all deserved it this week! So the class have collectively earnt the PRIDE certificate this week. Here is a class photo of us celebrating our award.

Well done Hedgehogs! Have a good weekend everyone.
