The children have settled well and are getting familiar again with school routines and expectations. They have looked incredibly hard and should be very proud of what they have achieved this week.

This week, we have been learning Grace Darling and the journey she went on to rescue survivors after a steam ship crashed into the rocks on the Farne Islands. We have written fact files. Then, we have been putting ourselves in her situation and thinking what she might of been feeling on that stormy journey.

This week the children have continued to work very hard. They have had a positive attitude to challenges they have been set and I have loved seeing how excited they have been for the new learning.



This week in maths we have been looking at teen numbers. We matched numerals to quantities of objects. Then we worked out what one more and one less than a given number is. We then tried some tricky problem solving questions!

Highlights from this week.
