Poles Apart…Walrus and Penguin.

This week we are reading the book Poles Apart in guided reading . It is the story of Walrus who lives at the South Pole and Penguin who lives at the North Pole and they decide to surprise each other with a visit. It tells the story of the places in the world they visit and how they eventually meet up. We will be looking at the use of capital letters for names of people and places. This also fits in with our maths last week when we looked at the points of the compass.

In Maths this week we will be learning the time and reading the clock at O’clock times, half past, quarter to and past and twenty five to and past the hour.

Children have now come to the end of the topic unit. On Monday, children will be given the opportunity to chose a new topic based around Christmas. We have decided to link our topic work with our Christmas play this term. Next week our Christmas play will be revealed, we are very excited!

In PE children are going to working on three different sports each week. The sports this term are rugby, netball and gymnastics. Children will be learning skills within these sports and applying them to a game situation.
