# Autumn 1

Week 1

Hi everybody,

We have had a good and exciting 2 days. We have made birthday cards for each other, designed puppets, made drawer labels, read books, counted in 2s, had lunch in the hall and made a 100 class reward chart!

Best wishes,

from the Gruffalo class!

The children have already impressed myself and Miss Edge with their place value skills. Here is a great maths game where you need to shoot basketballs and identify lots of numbers!

## Gruffalo song

In class we have started to learn this song for our Gruffalo show planned at the end of term. Please have a practise at home with your own actions!

Week 2

## Well done to the Gruffalos for their puppet making skills! After drawing designs, choosing materials and making parts we are close to finishing.

Week 3

All the children have been given their TT rockstar logins and passwords. On the website there are great online games to play where you can test your 10 times tables (to start with) and "buy" items for your avatar!

The children have enjoyed playing this game to sharpen their Spelling Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) skills. Please have a go at home!
