The children have been looking at the story 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. This book is a simple story about friendship, but has also helped children to recognise, discuss and label emotions on their return to school. The children were feeling a variety of emotions now they were embarking on a new school year, in a new classroom, with a new teacher. The book was surprisingly powerful and after reading, we chose to make our own paper bag monsters.
We have started the year with our Place Value unit, reminding ourselves of what we know about hundreds, tens and ones. We've also been looking at numbers to 1000 and placing these numbers on unmarked number lines.
Today, we took our learning outside and walked around our 'Class Museum'. We looked at Roman artefacts, touched them and even tried on items from Roman times. The children enjoyed finding out about what each artefact was and what it may have been used for. They recognised some artefacts as items that we still use today, and discussed some strange artefacts that are no longer in use in modern Britain.
