We have begun our exciting topic about pirates this week. The children have been reading all about pirates in a non-fiction text. They came up with some fabulousns children investigated which materials were absorbent in order to help the pirates mop the decking. We will continue to investigate the properties of different materials in our science sessions this term. 
In maths the children have amazed all their teachers with their brilliant knowledge of addition facts. They are getting super speedy at recalling facts such as 7+1 = 8 (7 add 1 is equal to 8). They also used balance scales to investigate how both sides of an equation are equal e.g. 4+1 = 1+ 4.
Over the holidays we set up our exciting new construction resources. The children have been busy exploring these and we cannot wait to see their fantastic creations.
