Week ending Friday 15th November

Hello and welcome back to our class blog. This week our text of the week has been Charlie Cooks favourite book written by Julia Donaldson. Our number of the week this week has been number 8. Lets take a look at what we have been doing this week. 


We started off our week with Remembrance Day. We spoke a lot with the children about the importance of the day and why we wear poppies to show our support. We made a red poppy for the soldiers and a purple poppy for the animals and we have made our own Remembrance display as a reminder. 

As always we started off our new number by having a discussion on what can and cannot go on our magic carpet. The children are now becoming more confident with their ideas and we are hearing such fantastic answers and reasoning as to what can go on the carpet. 


This week we have had a special visitor in our classroom. We have a new maths bear called Monty. He is a really special bear because he has a birthday every single week when we introduce a new number of the week. The children have loved him and they love singing happy birthday to him. On Monday he will be turning 9 and so I'm sure we will have another song to sing. 

We've been working really hard on recognising our number of the week. We have been using our dabbers to catch all of the number 8's on our page, we have been looking for 8s in our classroom and we have perfected holding 8 fingers up. 

This week we have been thinking all about our favourite books, just like Charlie Cook. We have shared our favourite stories with our friends and we have been practising taking photos of our friends reading our books. We also used our favourite books this week to create our own front covers. We put our own name as the author too. 
One of our characters in our story this week was a witch. Therefore we thought it was the perfect time to make our own slime that she might have made in her cauldron. We all found this so interesting, although we weren't all to sure about the texture of it! 
We finished the week by celebrating Children in Need Day and we all wore our own clothes so that we could raise money for such a fantastic cause. We had a great day and we loved making our own Pudsey ears. 
We've had another busy but fantastic week. Next week we are going to be reading the text The Snail and the Whale and I know it is going to be a fantastic text to explore in class. 

Have a great weekend.
