# Autumn Term 2

Week 1

## The Gruffalos were adding larger 2 digit numbers today by making the numbers with practical resources and then adding the tens and ones together. Later on this week we will move from concrete maths to drawing our working out (pictorial). Well done whizzy workers!

Our wonderful music lessons with Miss Burge from the Sheffield Music hub have focused on percussion and learning about "Hall Of The Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg.

This term we have been reading, acting and writing about the story of Gregory Cool. Please ask your child about the incredible island of Tobago and the story of Gregory visiting his grandparents. We have also read and discussed the lovely book  Coming to England by Floella Benjamin set in Trinidad and England.

## A special guest came to visit us today and he gave us just what we wanted...a globe for our "Land Ahoy!" project. Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone! Mrs Chetcuti and myself will see you in 2021 in our brand spanking new school. You were the last group of children to be in a classroom that is nearly 150 years old and will be the first in the new Walkley Gruffalo class! Thank you for your enthusiasm and curiosity and look after your families in the next 3 weeks!
