A busy first week back
Friday 9th June | 1 comment
We have had a busy first week back. In literacy, we have been busy reading and performing summer and seaside poems. We began by reading lots of poems in our hive groups and then chose one to practise and perform to the rest of the class. This was good fun and some children really enjoyed performing!
We then moved onto writing our own group poems about summer. The children thought of some great ideas. Finally we wrote our own individual poems.
We have started our geography topic ‘Wonderful World’ and began by discussing what geography is and used globes, maps, Google Earth and atlases to help us.
We went for a walk in our local area and spotted lots of human features. We discussed and compared our local area to a seaside resort. Can you child discuss what the similarities and the differences are?
Thank you to the parents that came along with us – we really appreciate it. Over the two days we experienced quite different weather conditions!

We have also been looking at aerial maps in our geography lessons. In their hive groups the children worked together to label an aerial photograph of our school and its grounds.
In maths the children have been solving one-step addition and subtraction problems. Together we wrote a top tip list to help other children solve word problems. Can your child remember the top tips?
We have also been busy creating flags for the upcoming Farsley Festival. This year’s Farsley Festival is taking place at Hainsworth Park on Saturday 24th June and our flags will be on display there. We hope to see you there!
Have a lovely weekend.
