This week Apollo have been busy showing off all the things we have learnt in Maths so far. We have been doing some assessments so that we can review how well we are making progress and how well we are reaching our targets.
We have also had a go at some mastery activities to deepen our thinking and try to encourage us to explain our reasoning.

We have used the Katie Morag stories this week to help us remember how to sequence a story. We have used drama to help us recall the main parts of each story, then have compared the stories trying to remember to use conjunctions and interesting language.

The Nativity " Children of the World is beginning to take shape and although the children have been great at learning their words, we now need to practise remembering when to speak and that we need to speak really loudly - feel free to try it out at home ( we know you do have big voices really!)

Next week we will be planning and writing our own stories based on the Isle of Struay from the Katie Morag stories.

In Science, we have begun to look at materials and why certain objects are made of different materials. This links well to the Philosophy discussion we have been pursuing on plastics.
