Maple Class have been working very hard to finish their Design and Technology this week. Their task was to design and make a toy as part of the topic and for a competition in which the whole school would take part. The competition took place on Thursday 19th October and we were extremely pleased because five children won a prize in recognition for all their hard work. Well Done Maple Class

This week saw all the boys return to school after the holidays. As usual on the first day we completed Resilience based activities linked to the boys development and understanding of themselves. The boys looked at friendship and how they view themselves and others. We completed some activities which culminated in a self-review of ourselves as friends. The boys were all very honest and were then able to look at things they would change about themselves.

This term in maths the focus has been on reinforcing the class understanding of numbers and number recognition. We have looked at number bonds, place value and ordering. As part of this we have played speed bingo to help the boys focus on number recognition. The boys had to cover the numbers on their player cards as they were called in an attempt to win. It was quite difficult as the numbers were not allowed to be repeated and so the boys had to listen very carefully. We had lots of fun and we came up with a few funny calling rhymes for some numbers.
