This week the children have written diary entries and postcards as the snail from the Snail and the Whale. They have written about the snails journey and have used some amazing vocabulary to describe what the snail saw on its travels.

In Maths we have finished off the arrays work by looking at columns. After half term we will be focusing on division for the first few weeks. Please continue to help your child learn their 2,5 and 10 times table.

Well done to all the children for a fantastic half term. They have worked so hard and matured so much. We hope they enjoy the week off and hope they recharge themselves ready for the last leg of year 1!
