This month we celebrated Book Week and World Book Day. The children had a fantastic week with lots of exciting reading activities. We focused on the poem ‘People Need People’ by Benjamin Zephaniah and the children produced class poems of their own, thinking carefully about their friends and family and the things they like to do together.

We took part in Maths Week where the focus was ‘Catch Me Counting’. During this week the children spent lots of time counting in and out of school. We read stories based on number and spent some time playing a variety of Maths games.

As part of D.T the children designed and made rooms for a castle. They used lots of different material and thought carefully about the furniture they were making. The children then evaluated their rooms and thought about what they liked and how it could be even better.

On the 25th March, we visited St. Richards Church. The children learnt lots about the Church and found out what happens at a baptism.
