In Maths we will be exploring number as well as revisiting addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In our word learning sessions, the children will each be learning vocabulary related to the topics they are studying in their home classes.

We have had a lovely first week back in The Base. Amongst other learning we have been thinking about e-safety. Here is a picture of the class charter we have signed. You might want to revisit it with your children at home. Have a lovely weekend!

This week we have been learning about instructions. Yesterday we made some potions to help us to generate some fantastic vocabulary that we can use when we write our spells tomorrow. We all had a lot of fun!

This week we have been writing poems about Autumn, using our senses. Today each child performed them in front of the rest of the class. Everyone did a great job of keeping their voices nice and loud and using fantastic actions and expressions. Ask your child to perform their poem for you this weekend. Here is one performance that we all loved. Have a great weekend!
