Hi everyone! We've had a couple of weeks to settle in now and the children have been working really hard in Mandela Class.
In maths, we have been revising and extending on the pupils' understanding of place value (including rounding, ordering and comparing 4-digit numbers) and in literacy we have been working on developing basic skills and recognising different types of sentences. Next week, we will begin a new literacy unit based on the book 'The Chocolate Touch' by Patrick Skene Catling.
We've been having lots of fun getting immersed in our history topic about the 1970s! Thanks to everyone who has sent things in for us to look at or to go in our 70s memorabilia box. Any photos etc. that you have from the era would be great to see! (We saw some lovely photos of a certain headteacher yesterday - with a lot more hair on his head than he has now!)
Welcome to Mandela Class!
Welcome back to school everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic break over the summer. It has been great to get to know the children over the last couple of days and they have done really well at settling in to new routines.
I do hope to meet you all at the Back-to-School meeting on Thursday, but please feel free to pop in any time if you have any questions.
