Corfu Class week beginning 26.9.16

This week in Corfu class!

Please check our blog every week, as we will be posting information about our learning and tasks to complete for home learning.

This week in literacy we are learning about verbs, the alphabet, and what instructions are. In numeracy, we are exploring number bonds up to 10, and measuring by comparing length, mass and capacity. In RE, we are learning about the feast day of St Cyprian and St Justina. In topic, we are finding the answer to the challenge question: has Greece always looked the way it looks today?
