This week we have been finding out about money.
In English we have been practising our story ‘How tortoise got his shell’ and learning how to spell tricky words in the story.
In Numeracy we have been learning about where money comes from and the different ways of paying for things. We have talked about earning money and the different kinds of jobs people do to earn their wages. We have learned the names and values of UK coins and paper money and developed our addition and subtraction skills using money.
In topic work we have discussed how ‘it’s ok to not be ok. We have made a Peace Corner in our classroom for meditation and mediation and we are learning how to use it effectively.
