Week beginning 5th September 2022

Children have settled in their new class and have approached each activity with enthusiasm and a smile on their face.

This week we have been focusing on the JC Promise ‘Make everyone welcome’

This week in maths, children have been learning all about place value. We have been counting in 100’s and applying our learning to reasoning questions. Children have been using a range of resources such as place value counters and dienes to demonstrate their understanding.

In English, children have been introduced to their new text, Flat Stanley. Children have been creating actions to remember the story, ordering events and then creating sentences to describe Stanley’s actions. Children have also been rehearsing this story with their new actions throughout the week to help them remember the story in lots of detail.

Children have also started their new geography topic all about our world. Children have been learning about globes and their key details. Children have then created their own globes, identifying continents and the equator line.

Please see a copy of our text and story map for Flat Stanley below.
