This week we learned about mapping and we looked at how using a map can help us. On Monday we made up rhymes to help us remember North, East, South and West. Our favourite was Never Eat Spider Webs! Then we went out into the playground and had a go at making a sketch map of the school Mrs Bell was very impressed with us as this was tricky!
On Tuesday we used the laptops to explore using Google maps. We had great fun with this and enjoyed dropping the little yellow man onto the map. Some of us even managed to find our own houses! This is something you could do at home too.
In Writing we wrote our imaginative stories using the plan we wrote last week to help us. We are trying to use different interesting sentences openers and to structure our story with a beginning middle and end. Some of us haven’t quite finished so we will share some of these with you next week.
In Maths we have been revising number – addition and subtraction. We are getting speedy with our number bonds to 20! Here’s a good game for practising number facts (the children can explain what you do!):
Admin for next week:

Have a lovely weekend,
