Through the Key Hole

Week beginning 16th April 2018


This week in Literacy we have been retelling the story of The Gingerbread Man.

We took on the roles of different characters in the story and all joined in with 'Run, run as fast as you can you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!'

We also made some gingerbread men. We had to follow the recipe very carefully.

Mrs Ward was really looking forward to eating her gingerbread man, but overnight he ran away!!


Well done to class C who won the 5 read challenge this week.


In Numeracy we have been using money.

We have been working out the cost of buying gingerbread men eg How much would it cost to buy three gingerbread men if they cost 10p each? How much would it cost to buy 5 gingerbread men if they cost 5p each? How much would it cost to buy 8 gingerbread men if they cost 2p each?

We have also been exploring equivalence in money eg a 10p coin is the same as two 5p coins

or a 10p coin is the same as five 2p coins


In Topic we have been looking at the kinds of houses we might find in Bromley Cross such as detached, semi-detached, bungalow, flats, terraced etc


We have also been finding out about St Patrick.


Let's hope this lovely sunny weather will last over the weekend!
