We completed our first DT project this week. In Science, we have been learning about keeping healthy and decided to design and create our very own breakfast cereal. We explored cereal box design features before sketching our own. We then copied our design onto a net of a cuboid before cutting it out and folding it to shape. We then selected a range of ingredients, ensuring some healthy bits, to make our own cereal.

We went on a noun hunt around school to find people, places and things!

We have had a fantastic week settling into class 2.

Our love for books has really shone through already and we are really excited to develop our passion for reading.

This week we have explored features of books in English, place value in Maths, Florence Nightingale in History and began our cursive handwriting journey. We have also participated in a short PE lesson, our PE day is a Tuesday this year.

We read the book 'Our class is a Family' and talked about class expectations.

In English we have explored features of books. We then chose a book from our reading area and compared the illustrations, authors and blurbs! Please can children bring in their favourite book on Monday (11.09.23) as part of this topic.

We each made a birthday card to go in our special birthday box! On our birthday we will choose a card from class 2.
