Our Wonderful World

Find out all about our topics, special events, learning and amazing achievements over the last week!

Our Learning Journey this Week wb: 25.6.18

This week, the children have enjoyed investigating and finding out all about the world around them!  We read the Creation Story in our R.E. lesson and the children have been using props to re-tell the story with their friends!  Find out more about our week below....





In Literacy, we have been using our phonic skills to write sentences independently. We have taken part in lots of independent writing challenges and have been trying hard to spell of lots of tricky words correctly.  The children have enjoyed being independent in their writing and writing about their interests and wonders about the world around them!



In Maths this week, we have been learning through lots of amazing, practical problem-solving challenges!  We have been using our number skills to revise and revisit addition and subtraction problems, using a range of different strategies!



This week, in R.E., we have started a new topic all about 'Our World'.  The children went on a special walk to investigate the world around them.  The children were amazed to find a bird's nest and were fascinated by watching their own shadows!





We have also listened to the Creation Story and used props and pictures to retell. The children were fascinated by this story and wrote some beautiful prayers to thank God for the gift of our world.

Image result for our wonderful world

This week, your challenge is to take a walk around your local area, maybe to the woods or a park, and have a look for some more amazing things that God has created for us. Why not take a photo of the amazing things that you find, or draw and label a picture? You could even write down some questions that you would like to find out, to put onto your classroom 'Wonder Wall'.

Don't forget to practise reading every day!
