Last week of the Spring Term!
We cannot believe how quickly this term has gone- the children have made fantastic progress and we are feeling proud of every single child.
This week, in Maths we have been learning how to tell the time. The children have been using clocks to learn o'clock and half past.
In Literacy, the children have created wonderful pamphlets on how to look after the world using 'bossy' verbs.
In Theme, the children have made some fabulous Easter baskets and Easter cards!
We are looking forward to the Summer Term- have a fantastic break!
As part of our theme learning we have learnt about Isambard Kingdom Brunel - we created our own collage of his portrait, I'm sure you'll agree they are impressive!
Why not ask your child what he was famous for, lets see if the can remember!
Today we had a very helpful lady come in and talk to us all about keeping safe when using technology!
We found out that the best way to keep safe online is to keep all our personal information locked down and to not tell anyone our names, our age, our address or even the school we go to!
We also talked about the fact that some games available online were not appropriate for school aged children. It was a very interesting assembly!
14th - 17th January 2019
This week in Maths we have looked at patterns in number and looked at odd and even numbers. We have also looked at continuing a pattern in both number and shape.

In theme we have been exploring different weather and the seasons, they all thoroughly enjoyed making a season tree.

In Maths this week we have been looking at measurement and exploring ways of using measurement. We have begun to use language such as longer, longest, shorter, shortest, taller and tallest. We have also measured using non standard measurements - using our hands as our tool, progressing on to using rulers and units of measure such as CM.
In Literacy we have been concentrating on the structure of sentences, whilst introducing adjectives to our writing all based around the book 'Sydney, Stella and the Moon'.
We have continued with our theme, Hemel Hempstead and have looked at industries that sprang up around the area of Apsley, looking at the paper mill and John Dickenson, the children then had a go at making their own paper. See photo in class pages.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the meeting yesterday. Attached is the powerpoint that was presented. We hope that this meeting was informative and we look forward to a positive year ahead !
