Which came first the chicken or the egg?

We had great fun talking about eggs and chickens this week in Science! We were delighted to find out that the chicks we hatched in school at Easter, now have their own chicks and this has helped us to understand the life cycle of chickens!

This week has also seen some fantastic writing in Apollo class. The children all worked really hard to write their own adventure story based on Small Knight. We have seen speech marks in their writing, question marks, exclamation marks, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases to name but a few things and so we all feel very proud this week.

In maths we have continued to explore how to split up or ‘partition’ numbers to help us subtract using a number line.

This strategy can be found in our school maths policy and builds carefully on what we have learnt in previous weeks about how to use a 100 square to add or subtract multiples of ten.

In Computing we have been using a Scratch programme called ‘Spacism’ and have been learning how to create ‘algorithms’ to instruct the computer and get the outcome we need (directing the rocket to the moon.) You can use Scratch at home if you would like to have a go.

You should have received a letter about our trip to Elm Bank Care Home on October 10th. Please let us know if you would like to support us by accompanying us on that day.
