A very busy, book filled week this week in the Merlin class. We have loved really getting into the story of Matilda. We have done lots of different genres of writing including a diary entry, character profiles and a very mischievous piece of writing about how to prank your parents like Matilda did (sorry!). It was a lovely day on Thursday which was World Book Day and we really enjoyed lots of different reading activities. It was lovely to see the children so engaged with their reading when the volunteers came in and their manners were exemplary – well done!
In Maths we have done a lot of work on comparing and ordering and how to find a fraction of an amount. Some tricky concepts and lots of mathematical language to grasp but they’ve done a brilliant job so far. A few more lessons on fractions of amounts and we are going to be a class of fraction geniuses
Topic has been very interesting this week and we have been looking at adaptation and evolution. We have looked at how animals have changed over time to suit their environments and thinking about how humans might have to change in the next million years, especially with the world and its problems that it has at the moment.
PE will be outside more often now that Spring is on it’s way so please make sure that children come to school with trainers, jumper and/or jogging bottoms – plus a change of top and socks.
Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Jordan, Mrs Harrison and Mrs Jennens
