Merlin's have made a great start to the new school year; everyone has come in with a positive attitude and have risen to the new challenges of being a junior. 

In our history lessons we are learning about civilisations; focusing on the Ancient Egyptians. The children have been able to find and place the Ancient Egyptian period on the timeline and have learnt the meaning of the terms BC and AD.

Science has been entertaining this week with the children learning a short action song to remember all of the different organs involved in the digestive system and their roles in digesting food.  

The children have been working on improving their confidence with place value in maths, extending their understanding of larger numbers to 1000 and 10,000.

In English we have shared the stories 'The Blue House' and 'I'll take you to Mrs Cole'. We will be applying some of their features to plan and write our own story next week about 'feeling at home'.
