As we reflect back on this week we also look forward next where the children will complete reflections in Maths and Literacy.

MATHS AND IPC LEARNING

We enjoyed learning about position and direction this week, directing others using the terminology 1/4 turn, 1/2 half, 3/4 turn, left, right, forwards, backwards, up and down.

We also mapped the route from Home to School or from Home to the CC.  The children noted the Geographical features of both camps and discussed the differences and similarities.
We learned the names of the continents and identified our home and host continent as well as researching the geographical features using atlases and Ipads.

LITERACY

We retold the story of Cinderella and then brainstormed ways in which we could adapt the story.
We asked three big questions:

HOW CAN WE CHANGE THE CHARACTERS?

HOW CAN WE CHANGE THE SETTING?

HOW CAN WE CHANGE THE EVENTS?

The children used jot thoughts to jot down their ideas and then we played tug of war - placing the ideas on a line between good idea and GREAT idea.

From this the children used the great ideas to rewrite the story.

Thank you for all the Pringle boxes! Our Getting to School Project is at the Entrance to the school.
