This week, we have been enjoying some outdoor learning. In writing we were looking at imperative verbs and giving each other instructions such as ‘run around the playground’, ‘complete 10 jumping jacks’ as well as many others. In maths we were taking another look at number bonds and making our own examples with cones.
Children in Ada Lovelace class have had a great first week back. We’ve been trying to stay active as much as possible. This week was British Science Week and we’ve been talking about innovation and inventions including Ada Lovelace’s involvement in the world’s first computer.
In History we continue learning about the Romans. The children were brilliant at giving speeches persuading the Celts to fight back against the invasion.
