To welcome the children back to Whitestone, the whole school has focused on the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
In Reception and Year 1, we have:
This term, we will be learning about our community - West Cross.
In class, we have created a "Community Corner" by setting up a miniature West Cross, including a Spar shop, a post office and the Rag & Bone cafe. We will change the pop-up role plays to resemble other important features in our community.
We have discussed what 'community' means and how we are all different and unique.
We have drawn our homes using ICT - Reception children used an iPad and children in Year 1 used jit on their Hwb accounts.
This week, the children have made cardboard models of their houses and they will be displayed in our corridor. We have been learning about odd and even numbers so we will be numbering our houses and placing them onto "Even Street" and "Odd Avenue".
We have also learned the names of 2D and 3D shapes to make models of houses.
