Many of us have expressed an interest in recycling so the Sandpipers have decided to explore the topic in a little more depth.
We have been spending time focusing on what materials are used to make things around us and how it can be reused to help preserve our planet...we enjoyed lots of fun experiments!
In literacy, we have been focusing on the story 'Ada's Violin'. We have also written winter poems and been concentrating on developing our comprehension skills through one of the most important skills we will ever learn - reading.
In Maths, our focus is on number and place value, learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and fractions of shapes into halves and quarters. We are also continuing to work on our Maths Passports (see link opposite).
In RE, we have been thinking about the Hindu faith and have used role play to compare the different wedding traditions observed by Christians and Hindu's. We have also enjoyed learning more about the celebration of Christmas.

We have merged our Open Classroom and Learning Together times.
The session will take place on Wednesday afternoons from 2.45 starting with a 20 minute focus on maths skills followed by the opportunity for parents/carers to browse through their children's workbooks.
Whilst this is not an appropriate time to discuss progress with the teacher, separate appointments can be made should you have any concerns or questions.
We are keen to promote home reading and have attached a couple of links we hope you will find useful...
