The children might not have been completely aware in year 1, but this week was assessment week. The children have done some challenging work and I was really proud of how well they managed with the changes in our learning. They really showed how much they have improved in certain areas, especially Maths. Well done Beech Class!
I am really sorry to say, due to the assessments and COVID striking it has been a week where I haven't taken enough pictures. I did manage to snap this one and it was too good not to share. During continuous provision, the children set up their own classroom, they took it in turns to be the teacher and share stories with the children (including some toys to make up the numbers!).
Next week, we will be continuing our humanities topic of London, as well as testing materials in Science, our usual PE and other subjects too. If you would like to do some work with your children here are some ideas:
- Think about what materials you might use to build a house. Can you think of what properties these materials might need to have?
- Have you ever heard of the Great Fire of London? Can you find out more about where it started? How did they put it out? How long did it burn for?
- In Maths, we are going to be starting our new topic, volume and capacity. Can you notice what liquids are measured in? Have a look at the side of drinks bottles, milk bottles etc.
Have a lovely weekend,
