We have designed our own crowns and used some excellent adjectives to describe them.

Week Beginning 30th January 2023
This week we have continued to enjoy reading The Queen's Hat story by Steve Anthony. We wrote our own version of the story called The King's Crown. The children wrote their stories independently using their amazing phonic skills. The children are learning about using question marks in their sentences to ask a question. They even met King Charles (aka Mr. Roffey!) and were able to ask him questions about his crown.
In maths we are practising our addition and subtraction skills and are beginning to understand and use doubles to solve simple problems. We are continuing to learn about special books in RE and birds, reptiles and amphibians in Science.
