This week the children have been doing some brilliant subtraction using the unstructured number line method! The have also developed their reading through the use of the ‘Pineapple of Peel’ and the ‘Grapes of good word use’ as we delved into the author’s use of language! Most excitingly, the children shared their ideas for next half term’s topic – ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’! Some amazing ideas came to light, ranging from designing shoes, ordering shoes by length, to investigating how shoes are made and what they are made from! We will incorporate the children’s ideas into the planning for next half term and look forward to an exciting half term ahead!
