On Thursday, Oakmere learned about Remembrance Day.

With Remembrance Day approaching next week, Oakmere learned about what the poppy symbolises. The children enjoyed painting a poppy on their stones ready to be displayed along the path to help us all to remember the brave soldiers and animals. They also created another poppy which will be displayed in the window at the front of the building.

We have moved on to subtraction in our maths lessons which can be really tricky but the children have worked incredibly hard and have impressed us both! They have used counters and number lines to support their calculations.

In Literacy, we have started our new book 'Eliot, midnight superhero'. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the story so far and have predicted which missions Eliot might go on based upon the clues the author has left in his illustrations. Later in the week, they used adjectives to describe Eliot and looked at adding the -er and -est suffix to words.

The children enjoyed our collective worship delivered by Reverend Angela and she was really impressed with their thought provoking questions. In our R.E. lesson, we explored the Bible and why it is so important and special to Christians. 

Next week, it is assessment week. The children will be completing some short assessments in maths and Literacy so that we can gain a better understanding of the children's prior knowledge of the year 1 curriculum. This allows us to appropriately support and enhance their progression. It is also parents evening which will be in the form of a 10 minute telephone call. If you haven't booked your slot yet, please follow the link on the EeZee trip message to do so. I look forward to being able to have a conversation with you all as I have been so incredibly impressed with all of the children's effort and how well they have settled into year 1, despite the unusual circumstances. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Lewis and Mrs Carroll.
