We’ve had a brilliant start to the year in Maple Class. All of the children have adapted to being back in school really well and they have been working hard in lesson time. It’s been a pleasure getting to know each child.
We have all written a recount of our summer holidays, followed by editing and a final draft. During Maths, we have been focussing on place value and I have been impressed by the children’s ability to draw numbers to 1o00 using Diennes. With great excitement and expectation, we have started to learn about the Ancient Egyptians– who they were and where they were located.
As expected, the children were desperate to return to the forest! We had a brilliant, sunny afternoon in the forest area finding mini-beasts, cooking marshmallows and exploring the orchard area. Each child discovered, cooked and played cooperatively and with smiles on their faces.
It’s been a action-packed start to the term, with each and every child working well and enjoying being back with their friends in school.
