The Mount Stewart Schools

Week 1 and 2

Over the past two weeks, we have been reading 'The Shopping Basket'. We have discussed how to make a shopping list and we have thought about manners and how we can speak politely to others, unlike the character in the story. We also interviewed characters from the story and made predictions about the story ending.

In Maths, we have been looking at adding and subtracting. We were able to use our English theme of 'The shopping basket' to help us in our maths. Ruby class made a lovely display for this. We have been adding and subtracting real-life items, creating baskets for our items, and discussing and sorting healthy and non-healthy foods. There has also been an opportunity to paint fruit from observation and mix colours in the creative area.
