We’ve had another fantastic week in Otter class. We started our week with a visit from a local police officer and held a special assembly about keeping safe during the winter months. We had a discussion about what we can all do to stay safe and were keen to share our ideas about how we can be visible at all times, especially during these darker months.
After our Q&A session with the police officer we were able to go outside and sit in the police car! We even listened to the sirens and watched the blue lights flash.
In our English this week we have been learning about Amelia Earhart. Our Year 1s and 2s have produced some amazing independent writing using lots of adjectives and have been remembering capital letters/full stops beautifully! In our Topic we have been looking at maps and have done lots of learning about the United Kingdom. We have even looked at a world map and had a go at locating England, more specifically, East Anglia! In our Maths we have been continuing with addition and subtraction, this week we really got ourselves stuck into multi-step word problems and have all been superstar mathematicians.
This week we have also been learning about the importance of Remembrance Day and we all took part in a commemoration service and two-minute silence at Horning Church this morning. We also created some beautifully detailed poppies out of clay, which we carefully painted and laid at the church alongside a wreath of poppies.
