Welcome to Alder Class
Alder Class - Latest News!
A big welcome back to all the children after half term! We hope you had a relaxing week and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We are looking forward to continuing with our "Hola Mexico" topic for another couple of weeks since the children are enjoying the learning so much. Take a look at more examples of our amazing home learning, from Mexican cookery to models of ancient temples!
Alder have recently started a fantastic new book, The Arrival by Shaun Tan. This highly detailed picture book shows the experiences of a man leaving his country to start a new life in an unfamiliar land. The imaginative and unusual illustrations have provoked some mature and interesting writing.
This picture from the book shows just some of the curious landscapes the man encounters in his new home.
We are now immersed in multiplication and division! We showed links between the maths concepts by colour-coding our key vocabulary, and you can also look at some of our learning about multiples and factors.
Willow Class buddies
Before half term we visited our new buddies in Willow Class. We have been helping YR settle into their new school and it was lovely to spend some time sharing stories with them.
