Our learning this week:

This week in English we learnt facts about penguins based on the book 'One day on our blue planet in the Antarctic'. In Maths we practised subtraction using a number line for numbers to 20. In Art we learnt about primary and secondary colours and had a go at mixing colours ourselves. In Science we talked about what type of clothes we would wear if we went to Antarctica and in Geography we learnt about human and physical features in our local area.


Next week, the children will all be on phase 4 phonics if they haven't started already. We will learn about letter writing in English, practise our addition and subtraction to 20 in Maths and learn how to make different shades of the same colour in Art. In Geography we will go and see our local area around school.
