Hereford Class April Blog 30/04/21

Back from our Easter holidays!


After a wonderful Easter break, Hereford have been back in class enjoying learning about many new things. Below are some of the things we have been up to.

In English, we have been reading the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit!' This is a series of letters written by crayons owned by Duncan a young boy with a box of crayons. Each crayon has an issue with the way that Duncan has been using them. These range from red crayon feeling over used to yellow and orange having an argument over who should colour the sun. We have been writing letters replying to the crayons using the key features of letters. The responses were fantastic!

In Maths, we have been learning about money and coin values. Over the last two weeks we have been comparing coin values for 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. As well as this we have also looked at bank notes. We used this learning to then create and run our own shopping stalls in class. Some of us were the shop-owners while the rest of the class could purchase toys from them.


We then learnt about 2D and 3D shapes. learning the different names. We had great fun building towers using cuboids, pyramids and cylinders.

In CCCS we have begun to learn all about the Great Fire of London in our butterfly ' Who Will Help Put The Fire Out?'. As part of this we have learnt about the timeline of the fire and how it spread. We learnt all about Samuel Peyps and Sir Christopher Wren. 

Below are some photos of what we have been up to!
