Hello Everyone,


It has been lovely having you all back in school and hearing all your voices.


We have been learning so many new things in Amethyst class and it has been super exciting.


In maths we are learning about Place Value.  We have learnt the value of each digit in numbers up to 1000.  We have been comparing them with mathematical symbols greater than and less than.  We have also been ordering and comparing numbers up to 1000.



In English, we have linked it to our overall topic 'The Stone Age' and have been learning all about The Croods.  The children have been amazing at describing the characters and sequencing the events.  We are now trying to write our own versions using all the new words and conjunctions we have learnt about.  We will then go back and edit our work correcting our punctuation and spellings.


Topic has been great!  We are learning all about The Stone Age and links brilliantly with our science which is all about rocks, soils and fossils.


We have sketched fossil pictures in Art. Discussed hunter gatherers in History and learnt about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks in Science.


Now we are ready to learn some more!

For Harvest festival Amethyst Class were inspired by the artwork of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and his portraits made using food stuffs.

Inspired by our class book, the one and only Ivan, we drew pictures of silverback gorillas.
