Spring 1: Week 7

Date: 15th Feb 2023 @ 9:39am

What a wonderful half term we have had. The children have worked incredibly hard in absolutely everything they have done and I am so proud of them. 

This week in maths we have started a new unit learning all about perimeter. The children walked around given objects and shapes to help them understand that the perimeter is the outside of the shape. They now know that to calculate the perimeter of a shape they need to add together all lengths and widths. 

We have finished reading The Egyptian Cinderella now. Last week the children compared it to the traditional version, and found lots of similarities but also many differences. We read another traditional tale called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The children used this to write their own Ancient Egyptian version; they showed an excellent understanding of Ancient Egypt through this by including pyramids, deserts, sarcophaguses, cats and tombs in their stories.
