Happy Half Term. Have fun with friends and families. See you all safely back to school on Monday 3rd June 2019.

February 2019

What a busy month February was - despite the first day being snowed off and the half term break in the middle.
 
In Maths we have been learning about addition and subtraction. We have been using objects to help us find our answer as well as other methods such as 'crossing out'. The children have really got to grips with this and have shown their knowledge through mastery. Well done!
Later in the month we looked at Place Value. The children have been solving problems using their knowledge of numbers to 50 and then 100. We have also been ordering numbers from smallest to largest by looking at the 10's and 1's. We are now working on solidifying our knowledge of the 2's, 5's and 10's times tables. 

In Literacy the children have been learning the Meerkat Mail story. The children rehearsed the story using our story map, this allowed them to imitate the key language to support them when they went on to inventing their own story. The children have learnt to sequence the story in order of events and learnt about how the story was a 'Journey' type of story. The children later wrote their own 'Journey' story, something happened on each day of the week. We had some fantastic storytellers! 

Mid way through the month we had our topic day - 'All About Me!', the children came to school in as 'themselves', some were dancers other were footballers, all different and all very special indeed. We had a wonderful day writing poems and drawing self portraits.
 
We have been talking about our mental health and lots of different emotions. We looked at posters and talked about what the emotion was and discussed times when we might have felt like this. 
 
The children had a fantastic day for our 'Parent Open Day', thank you to those who were able to make it. The children learnt about how we are all different and how people celebrate different events around the world. The children listened to a story about a little girl who was celebrating the Chinese New Year. We wrote our name in Chinese, decorated dragons with different textures, made a wish for the new year and sequenced the story. 
 
In PE we have been playing outdoor games and doing dance. The  children have learnt to move quickly in different directions, work as a team and use their body to respond swiftly to an instruction. The children have made up multi step dance sequences and responded to different types of music. 
 
We finished the month with our appeal for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. Our contribution is below. And didn't we do well as a school!
