Week beginning 16th September 2019

English

In English this week, we have been our class novel ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen. We have used adjectives to describe the bear and wrote a list of items we would take in our backpacks if we were going on a bear hunt! We then went on a walk around the school yard to look for the bear. We found him in the forest!

Maths

In Maths this week, we have been developing our knowledge of numbers to 10. We have been finding different ways to represent numbers and we have been working on our ability to count really carefully.

Topic

This week in topic lessons, we have been learning all about our body. We have labelled some parts of our bodies and were able to locate our knees, elbows and shoulders! We have then begun thinking about our senses and how some of our body parts help us to smell, hear, feel, see and hear.
