Who is that trip trapping over my bridge?
This week in Orange Class we are using the Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff as the inspiration for our learning. We are finding out all about the character of the troll, what he looks like and what he motivates him. We will even be writing about what we think the troll did next after he was knocked off the bridge!
In computing we are going to be creating our own illustration of the troll using paint software. This week we will be starting this process by making sketches from which we can start to create our computer design. In science we will be using junk modelling to create our very own trolls! We will then be exploring the different materials we used to make them.
In maths we are learning about place value using numbers beyond 20. We will be trying to find missing numbers, putting random numbers in the correct order and finding out about odds and evens. We will also be starting to count in 10s and 2s.
This week we will also be marking Remembrance Day and talking to the classes about the importance of marking it.
Don't forget about the shoebox appeal if your children wish to take part, just send them in to class.
With the weather getting cooler please remember to put names in your children's hats/gloves etc so they do not get mislaid.
Have a lovely week!
