Topaz, what another amazing half term it has been! You are now fully fledged Year 1 children as you have now completed you first full term and it is so lovely to see how much you have all grown in independence and confidence.
We have had a fantastic, busy and exciting half term full of learning based around our Power of Reading texts.
First we read Pattan’s Pumpkin, where we learnt all about India, tasted pumpkin soup and created some amazing pieces of art work. We used water colours and based our pictures on Frané Lessac’s work of the Indian mountain ranges.
Then we read Claude in the City where we learnt some French, created a 3D map of his journey through Paris and wrote stories of his new adventures.
In maths we have spent lots of time becoming super secure in number, visited ‘Miss Stuart’s shop’ and bought lots of yummy treats using coins and created a Santa sleigh using 2D shapes.
Well done Topaz for working so hard this term and I wish you a happy and safe Christmas holidays. I look forward to hearing all about it in 2020!
