Otter Class Weekly Updates 27/11/23

Otter class have had another brilliant week and have been working super hard practising songs for our Christmas performance. 

In our English we have been looking at ‘Lost and Found’ which tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a little boy and a penguin. We all had a go at sketching a penguin before writing some descriptive sentences to tell the reader what features penguins have. Year 1 and 2 have shared some fantastic ideas during our sentence stack lessons, and have been working really hard on their handwriting and presentation. Reception children have also been trying really hard in phonics to master ‘th’ ‘sh’ ‘ch’ and ‘ng’. 

In our Maths, we have been working on comparing and applying our addition and subtraction learning. Year 1 and 2 have been having a go at coming up with their own comparison statements and have been working collaboratively to solve these. Reception children have been focussing on mastering their numbers to 5 and have been doing lots of practical activities to support their number recognition and formation. 

In our Topic this week we have been focussing on Geography and have been looking at navigation- making links to our work on Amelia Earhart. We have been using our knowledge of the 7 continents and 5 oceans to have a go at plotting Amelia Earhart’s flight path!
