Until February half term we will be focussing on 2D and 3D shapes in maths. We spent our first lesson recording how many different shapes we could see around school in a tally chart then we recognised and named 2D shapes.
Over the past 3 weeks we have focussing on the author Anthony Browne in English. We have read Willy the chimp and Willy the Wizard. This week we are now looking at the book Gorilla. Over the past few days we've discussed (inference) an illustration in a group, researched the author and written a character description. Next week we will be writing our own version of the story.
To link with our Geography topic of 'Africa' we had visitors from the Education Group to lead an exciting day. In the morning we learnt about traditional masks and in the afternoon we used our masks to perform a dance to our families.
