As an introduction to our next topic, and as part of Black History Month, we have been learning about Rosa Parks. We will continue to look at significant historical figures from a range of cultures through the year. We also enjoyed painting some Leigh-on-Sea scenes in art.
As part of our reading comprehension lesson, we used our inference skills and a dictionary to find the meaning of unknown words. We have also been learning to use a variety of sentence starters to make our writing more interesting.

We have been looking at a range of poems this week and enjoyed performing “The Toys’ Playtime” poem- complete with actions and wonderful expression. In maths we have been working hard on a unit about fact families and have learnt how addition and subtraction are inverse operations. Here is some of the work we produced in R.E. this week- all about mosques.

Time travelling in science to meet and interview Charles Macintosh, story writing in English and a trip around the local area searching for missing signs in pictures. It’s certainly been a busy and exciting week. Well done Crab Class- you have worked really hard and your behaviour out on our walk was exemplary.
We have had a brilliant week in Crab Class. We have been enjoying the story ‘The Queen’s Handbag’ in English and even got to meet some of the characters to ask them some questions- there are some great actors in Crab Class! We also did some gardening in our outdoor learning session and were amazed at how many broad beans had grown over the summer in the allotment area.
Wow! What a busy first full week we have had! In English we wrote postcards about our summer holidays, making sure we used correct punctuation. We learnt some punctuation Kung-Fu to help us remember. We started our Power Maths lessons in place value and shared our knowledge on materials in science. Finally, here are our finished Picasso inspired portraits that we started last week.
