Talk to your grownups about the different ways to describe mud. Can you think of any adjectives (describing words) to describe what it is like? What do you like to do in the mud? Challenge: You could even write your own mud poem to go on our excellence board!

In English this week the children have been working super hard to understand what a poem is and to write their very own poems about mud. We described what mud is like, what we can do in the mud and talked about how we don’t always need to write in full sentences when we are writing a poem. The children had some fantastic ideas and developed them into their own poems using our writing frame.
In Maths this week we have been looking at finding the missing part. We have used practical resources to ‘hide’ a part and to count back to find the part that is hidden. We moved this on to look at our new symbol ‘-‘ which is the subtraction symbol, which we also describe as ‘taking away’. The children have been using resources to solve subtraction number sentences and have really enjoyed showing us their understanding.
On Thursday we watched the children in Year 2 and 4 performing their play ‘The Wind in the Willows’. The children really enjoyed the performance and the singing, and sat beautifully throughout!
Today we participated in the ‘Skip2bfit’ activity where the children got the chance to skip.
