    Doves Class have been busy learning about Spatial Sense in their Geography topic. As part of the unit, the children learn about the symbols used in Ordnance Survey (OS) maps and what they mean. The class really enjoyed the opportunity to look at local maps and find landmarks which they recognised.

    Doves class have been learning all about the Mexican festival of Day of the Dead as part of their curriculum enrichment and learning about different cultures. The children enjoyed dressing up in costumes and also created masks for a parade through the school. Also, they discovered the Spanish translations and practised their pronunciation.

    Please can you make sure you read regularly with your child (every night if possible) as they are able to change their books each day from the library. Reading regularly for short periods of time (10 or 15 minutes) makes such a difference to your child's progress. 

    Thanks - The Doves class team.

    This week Doves have been working hard on learning about fractions. They have been learning the language of numerator and denominator to understand how to share numbers into groups. The children enjoyed using the counters to practically work out the answers.

    We have been learning about email this week and how we can use this to communicate with others around the world.

    The children have finished their learning about systems in the human body and completed a final write about what they have learnt. They all worked really hard to remember what we had done in previous lessons.

    Published 27/09/23, by Claire Gosling

    Doves class have had a very busy week!

    We have been learning how to partition numbers by looking at the tens and ones. The children were then practising making numbers using the place value counters.

    In Science this week, we have been learning about digestion. We used Weetabix to model how our mouth and saliva begin the process, the role of our stomachs and intestines and then how waste is removed! The children loved watching the process using a bowl, bag and pair of tights! Ask them about it and see what they can remember!

    During outdoor learning, the class have been using salt dough to make stone age jewellery and then had a go at making natural paint from plants and leaves. This was not very successful, sadly!
