Miss Ashley – Teacher
Week beginning 16th September 2019
In English this week, we have continued to read our topic text of ‘The Stone Age boy’.
This week, we have focusing on familiarising ourselves with a new concept of fronted adverbials for time, place and manner. We have also planned and wrote a 4 part story based upon our topic of the Stone Age.
In Maths this week, we have continued to look at counting in 10s, 50s and 100s. We have focused on using calculation methods which the children are familiar and confident with using to help with the increasing numbers. We have also started to explore numbers to 1000; focusing on how to represent them pictorially, in words and recognise the larger numbers.
Finally, this week in Maths we were lucky enough to experience an amazing opportunity to participate in a maths escape room – we loved solving all the clues and we were all so engaged in the learning!
This week in topic lessons, we have been comparing the lifestyle of a person from the Stone Age Era against the lifestyles we have in modern day. We have investigated about the food they ate and how they got the food as well as the clothes they wore compared to ours. In addition, we have begun our French lessons whereby we are focusing on French greetings.

English Award: Charlie for brilliant use of fronted adverbials.
Maths Award: Lucy for super counting and building confidence with her teen numbers.

Week beginning 9th September 2019
In English this week, we have begun reading the story of ‘The Stone Age boy’.
We have focusing on expanding our vocabulary by exploring alternative adjective we can use to describe a character as well as using more powerful verbs to make our writing more exciting!
In Maths this week, we have started to look at counting in 10s, 50s and 100s. We started the week with revisiting prior knowledge of counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. We have used number lines and our prior knowledge of tens and ones to aid our understanding of counting in varying integers.
This week in topic lessons, we have started to think about our new topic of ‘Rocking and Rolling’ in relation to the Stone Age. Within these sessions, we have looked into a timeline of the Stone Age and identified the three main periods of the Stone Age. Furthermore, we compared Stone Age houses to our modern houses and thought about how they have changed and what has remained similar even after millions of years.

English Award: Ella for an amazing attitude towards her English work all week and for always trying her best.
Maths Award: Poppy for showing resilience towards her learning and for having a good attitude towards her maths activities.
