We made Colchester! 15/10/20

I'm sure you've been told LOTS that we were going to be building Colchester today...and we did! 

The children ABSOLUTELY LOVED picking their favourite landmark in the town and used LOTS of boxes and odd bits and bobs to create these MARVELLOUS creations! 

Have a look at Birch's version of Colchester below!

We wrote and internalised a text map telling the story of our building day. We used time connectives - see if you can hear them!

Knowledge Organiser - Summer Term 2021

Autumn Knowledge Organiser

We are learning to master our maths skills, to help us truly understand the concepts of maths.  Numberblocks is a fantastic programme that supports this and you can often get great resources in the CBeebies magazines!


If you want to find out more about how we pronounce sounds in phonics and how you can support your child with their learning at home, then check out the Alphablocks!


Wish your child would say more than "nothing" when you ask about their day? Try using these sneaky questions when you chat to them (borrowed from a parenting blog...too good not to share!).


Ever wonder which skills your children are learning through play?  Here is a link that you might find interesting:
