Our learning this week: 

This week we will be moving on to learn about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale - Key Worker Heroes. We will be looking at how nurses help us and how these pioneers helped to change nursing for the better. We will be discussing how society viewed them both very differently. We will end the week with a clap for nurses and celebrate these two amazing women. 


In maths the children did very well in the place value block and we hope this will stand them in good stead for the year. We will moving on to Addition and Subtraction starting with fact families. Have a look at our fluency maths board for the methods we will be using.
