We have been working hard on our letter formation and storywriting too. In reading we are continuing to learn our keywords and we are working through Storyworlds.

Topic

This term our Technology topic is Toast. Children will have the opportunity to observe how bread changes when it is toasted. We will be conducting a class survey on toast preferences along with having fun making their own toast with their favourite toppings in class. 
Our Class topic is called  ‘The Street’. This will involve the children learning all about different aspects of a street, including looking at different types of houses and shops and also people in the community who help us. We have had visits from the Police and the Fire Service and the children throughly enjoyed exploring the fire engine.
