To encourage greater independence in readiness for Year 2, from next week we will be asking the children to place their books and reading records in a box if they need changing. We will of course continue to check their book bags just in case, but please do encourage and remind your child to take their book out and pop it in the box if it has been read through twice and needs changing.
Since half term, we have been learning about our new topic ‘By the Seaside’. We have learnt about the seaside past and present, Victorian seaside and the features of sea sides around the world. It has made us all hope for a holiday as soon as we can! We have been learning about the book The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and wrote our own super predictions. We are also going to be writing our version based on our predictions. In Maths, we have been learning about halving and we will start to look at division by equal grouping over the coming weeks.
