"I learned the story "The Enormous Turnip". Zoe
"I enjoyed the introduction to our new topic. Writing about what we already know and writing questions about what we want to learn". Jasper
What amazing Hedgehogs we have! Well done for leading the school Harvest service today. They spoke clearly, and confidently shared what Harvest is all about. The story telling of "The enormous Turnip was fantastic and they only started learning the words and actions on Monday! After the service the children innovated the story by changing small parts to create their own version of the story. We had... The enormous carrot, the enormous strawberry, the enormous banana to name just a few. Ask your child how they changed their story.
In maths we have been using addition number stories to revisit number bonds and subtraction facts with numbers up to 20.
We have been working with our partners to read a text and to develop greater fluency. We have also been answering questions about what we have read.
We started our new topic 'Castles' this week. We thought about the things we already know about castles and wrote questions about what we want to find out. We are looking forward to our trip to Corfe Castle in Tuesday and we pray that the weather will be kind. Please can I remind you that your child will need a back pack to carry their lunch, snack, drink and water proof coat in. They will have to carry it around with them all day! A plastic bag would also be useful for the children to sit on while they are having their lunch.
Don't forget to send your child's home learning, including spellings, into school on Monday.

"I liked Golden Time." Finley
"I liked drawing a picture of a hedgehog." Ethan
"I have liked doing maths everyday." Tyler
What a fantastic start to Hedgehogs!
This week we have become familiar with our new routines and thought of some important Hedgehog Rules for our class. We have been trying hard to show that we know what they are and to get our spine put on the Happy Hedgehog!
We have started our mini topic, 'Hedgehogs' and have already learned lots of interesting facts about them. Ask your child what they have found out about hedgehogs!
We have been working hard with number in maths and have been estimating, counting and putting numbers onto a number line. We have also been writing numbers as digits and words. Please practice writing numbers as words at home, particularly some of the tricky ones that can't be sounded out.
Please can chidlren bring in thier home learning books from Rabbits on Monday as we will be continuing to use these before starting new ones. Home learning will be set and sent home on Tuesday.
Don't forget our class meeting on Tuesday, it would be lovely to see you.
