Looking out across the playground savannah this morning It feels fresh and bright, as does the week ahead.
Last week we continued to look at rockets and Romans. We also refreshed on addition in maths and have begun to introduce formal methods of adding. This week we will be looking at subtracting. We read the first half of a book called "A Bus of Our Own". This is a book about school children and a black community in 1950s 'segregated' Mississippi. We chose this book to coincide with Black History Month and it does raise some hard issues relating to equality and discrimination. So far children as a whole seem to have dealt with these issues in a very positive way.
I sent homework out on Friday. This should support what they have been doing in literacy and maths over the last couple of weeks and is intended to give children practice in full stops and capital letters as well as place value. I would be grateful if this is returned on Thursday.
"Knock, knock!" said the man. "Who's there?" replied the woman behind the door. "Knock Knock" the man replied. Why?
