Look how excited Herons were about wearing Christmas jumpers!

This term our topic has been ‘Toys’. As part of this unit, the children have learnt about old and new toys and how toys have changed over the years. As our exit point, we went on a trip to Abbey House Museum in Kirkstall, where the children were given the opportunity first hand to explore …

In Herons, we have been estimating numbers to 100 on a number line. We used blank number lines in pairs and challenged one another to predict where the number(s) would go. We gave each other clues, if needed, by working out the middle number and/or deciding which two multiples of 10 it would fall between.

Today, we learnt how to flexibly partition numbers to 100. Some children used base 10 to help them and others pictorially represented the numbers. Other children were able to work the partition mentally. We created numbers sentences and part whole models on our whiteboards.

Today in Woodpeckers, we have been celebrating the end of Pride Month. This year, it is 50 years old so it is an extra special celebration! We spoke about why what pride is and why people celebrate it. Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ …
