In Foundation Stage they have been reading about an old bear who came down from the attic and had some adventures. In Year 1 they have been finding the difference between 2 numbers and been writing a letter pretending to be a pirate. Year 2 have been busy reading a story of how to find gold and have been writing directions on how to find it! We hope they found some!
In Key Stage 2, Year 3 in maths have been learning fractions whilst in English they have been writing a story titled ‘Window’. They created some interesting stories. In Year 4 they have been sewing! They made Rainforest animals and have also been writing their own stories titled ‘Window’. They had some amazing ideas too!
