How can we find key places on a map?

The children have had a great week and coped well with the hot weather. Please remember to send the children to school with a sun hat, sun cream and a water bottle. 

In English, we have continued with the story 'The Gruffalo' and the children have spent time planning and writing their own version of the story. During their independent writing they have enjoyed thinking about what they would do if they met a Gruffalo and describing the characters from the story.

In Maths, we have continued to look at sharing into equal groups. The children have had lots of practical opportunities and by the end of the week had grasped the concept well. They have enjoyed sharing the food equally between their friends.

In Science, we have looked at the different parts of a plant. The children have enjoyed watching their sunflowers start to grow and drew their own plant to label.

In Geography, we looked at map symbols and discussed why they were important. The children spent time using magnifying glasses to explore a large map and identify the different features on there.
