This week we have been halving amounts by sharing. We have been using counters to find out what half a number would be! We have learnt that sharing is between two people and it has to be fair. Can you share something at home?
Making Pizzas!Written by Lora Allan
This week we have been looking at a book called George and Flora's secret garden. In the book the children are planning a surprise party for their new baby sibling that is on the way! They have decided to plant all the vegeatables they need for the party food in their grandad's garden. In the book there are instructions for how to make pizza so we thought we would have a go! The children made the pizza and then wrote about what they did the following day. Take a look at the pictures.

We have done some drama to really understand the characters in the book 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. The children imagined they were Jack and we asked them questions about their journey up the beanstalk! It was great fun and Aiken was a fantastic Jack, he answered the questions very well! He told us how he was so poor and that he thought the magic beans might be worth a try as the cow wasn't going to do anything amazing!
