Mrs White and Mrs Primmer are the teachers in Horse Chestnut this year.
In Horse Chestnut Class we feel strongly about looking after our world and making it a better place. We want people to use less plastic and stop polluting our world. Therefore, for our Harvest Festival we decorated different vegetables pictures in recycled plastics. We did this to show how much supermarket food is covered in plastic and film. We wanted everyone to start thinking about where they buy their fruit and vegetable from.
We've had a great first full week back at school. In Maths, we have been learning about the place value of digits up to 100 and have been writing numbers as numerals and words. We have also launched into our book for this term - The Jolly Postman and have been exploring the text. We wrote a letter to Cinderella as if we were Baby Bear and chose whether we should accept her apology or not. We also wrote a letter to Hobgoblin Supplies and ordered The Witch some new spooky equipment. In PSHE we learnt how we are all unique but that when we work as a team, amazing things can happen! We designed our own unique Tetris pieces then played a class game of Tetris to see how our pieces could fit together. Lastly we have been designing and making moving pictures in DT. Watch this space as we will be showing you our finale masterpieces next week!
Its been a busy but fun week!
