Squirrels Class Weekly Blog – week beginning 16/11/20

We have had another busy week in Squirrels Class! We have been continuing with our World War 2 Topic and we have been finding out about air raid shelters.

We have made air raid shelters and we tested them outside to see if they were camouflaged and strong (Annabelle).

We have also been finding out about some of the things that children and adults used to do for fun during WW2.

We learnt the Lindy Hop, about the radio, and some of the simple toys that children played with like marbles, dolls, metal cars, skipping (Harley-Reece).

 In Maths this week we have been learning about multiplication and division (Archie). The children used bead strings and plates to share out different amounts to find the answers to different subtraction number sentences.

In Literacy this week we read the book ‘The Lion and the Unicorn’ by Shirley Hughes and talked about evacuees. We wrote thought bubbles, using the first person, to describe how we would have felt if we had been evacuated to the countryside.
