Otter Class Weekly Update 15/01/24

We’ve had a fantastic first week back in Otter class. We have really dived into our new learning and have been working very hard. 

This week we took part in our federation quiz on our previous term’s topic- Let’s Fly Away. We were all superstars and answered lots of questions but a huge well done to Team Fire for answering the most questions correctly and being our quiz winners! 

In English we have been looking at our new text, Ossiri and the Bala Mengro. Our Year 1 and 2 children have produced some brilliant sentence stacks this week. We started with an experience lesson and learnt lots about ‘rag and bone’ people. We used our new learning to create some fantastic rainbows using scrap materials and crafts.    

We have been zoning in on key themes within the text and have all learnt lots about recycling and why it is so important. 

In Maths we have started our new unit on multiplication and division. This week we have done lots of work on equal groups and arrays. Reception children have been revisiting their numbers and shapes and have been fantastic mathematicians this week. 

Our new topic, Way Down Under is already proving to be one of great interest. We have really enjoyed locating Australia on a world map and thinking about what it might be like to live there. We have been looking at a town called Alice Springs and have been learning about the similarities and differences between there and where we live.
