It has been lovely to see the children return with such enthusiasm as we enter a new school year.
In maths, the class have been focussing on place value. The children have been constructing two digit numbers using Base 10 equipment and learning about the value of digits within numbers. We have started to add 10 to given numbers and also begun counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
In English, we have enjoyed reading parts of ‘Coming to England’ written by Floella Benjamin. The children have been able to reflect and put themselves into Floella’s shoes when she arrived in England from Trinidad back in 1960.
In topic, the children have started to explore who Florence Nightingale was and when she lived. Pupils enjoyed a hide and seek game to find out clues about her past.
