Happy New Year from RH
Friday 5th January | 1 comment
The children have enjoyed coming back to school and settling back in to routines.
This week we have discussed New Year’s resolutions and what they are. We linked this to the work we did before the holidays for charity and explained that the money the children raised for Oxfam meant they were being ‘good citizens’. We talked a lot about the word citizen and what it means. The children came up with lots of resolutions including helping with cleaning and cooking at home!
We have also learnt about:
*Estimating – we have discussed what the word estimate means and discussed how to make a good estimate by linking it to larger or smaller amounts.
*Fossils – we have learnt about what fossils are and where they come from. We have put some fossils in the freezer ready to dig out of the ice next week!
*Hospitals – we have talked about hospitals and what Doctors and Nurses do to help us. We read ‘Topsy and Tim go to the Hospital’ and the children spoke about their visits to hospitals.
Don’t forget we have a second ‘Learning about Literacy’ event on Thursday 11th January at 6.30pm. This is a repeat of the Literacy event that was held in November and is being held for those who couldn’t attend the first one.
Have a lovely weekend and we’ll see you on Monday.
