Transition Week

In literacy this week we have been reading the story 'Tiddler' by Julia Donaldson. We have been discussing our favourite characters and our favourite part in the story. We have looked closely at the different sea creatures in the book and we used our observational skills to label some of the characters with interesting adjectives. We had to think carefully about what each creature looked like, what it might feel like and how it moved. We are going to use some of our ideas to write our own character description later on this week.


Transition Week 

  In maths this week we are learning about shape. We have been using our knowledge of 2D shapes to sort different shapes depending on their properties. We also used 2D shapes to create pictures in the classroom. We are going to be making pictures of sea creatures using different 2D shapes later on this week.
