Juniper Term 1

In maths, we have focussed on place value, addition and subtraction. We have worked very hard on developing our problem solving skills and demonstrating our ability to explain our learning.

In English, we have worked hard on improving our writing skills by looking at a variety of different genres. We have written a dilemma story, a persuasive letter and a newspaper report, our Writing Journey books are already almost full!

We have had lots of fun with our first topic, Through the Window. Our big picture was to create an improvement for Greenway. To do this we visited Greenway, then we created a survey, followed by designing an improvement and finally making that improvement in groups.

The standard of Home Learning this term has been excellent! The children and staff in Juniper class have really enjoyed Home Learning Galleries and it is clear to see how much effort is going into this learning – we look forward to seeing the Home Learning for next term!

In term 2 our topic will be ‘Bright Sparks Academy’. This topic is a science based topic, focussing on electricity and magnetism.

Be kind, be safe, be responsible and embrace challenge
