Happy Friday everyone!
This week in English we’ve been writing a letter of apology to the Three Bears from Goldilocks after she rudely broke into their home. The children have done a wonderful job of using their new vocabulary in their work. Perhaps you’ve heard them use some of these words in conversations…
In Maths we have been using a numberline for subtraction – this is a very tricky skill to learn which we will revisit again and again throughout the year. Please don’t worry about it. Subtraction features on SumDog this week too.
We’ve spent some time discussing e-safety this week and decided that if anything pops up online that we’re not sure about we should tell a grown up – just like Smartie says!
Have a restful weekend everyone, in preparation for our final week of the half term!
This week in Maths we have been using coins to solve problems such as:
Mr Twit has some coins in his pocket.
He has 2 and 1 bronze coin.
What coins could he have?
What is the greatest/ least amount he could have?
The children have done very well with this. Why don’t you challenge your child to make different amounts from the coins you have at home? In these strange times, where we’re using cash less, it is important to keep knowledge of coins familiar.
For our longitudinal study this week, we have explored the Prayer and Secret Gardens in our school, looking for pollinators. We learnt that pollinators are creatures which carry pollen from plant to plant, enabling the production of fruit/seeds to make new plants. Well done to Max who worked out that there must be pollinators in the sea too!
For Home Learning, this week please log in to SumDog. Last week a number of children didn’t start the Sum Dog challenge. Please email the school if you need your child’s password/username details reissued. In addition, any time spent on Phonics Play will be time very well spent indeed!
Have a great weekend everyone – wrap up warm and enjoy the sunshine 🙂
Happy October everyone! September has flown by, hasn’t it!?
This week the children have done some exceptional writing, creating instructions for ‘How to Catch a Gingerbread Man.’
In Maths, we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and plotting the numbers on a number line.
This week, we joined in with ‘The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020’ and considered who our support networks would be if we had any difficulties in/out of school.
Homework this week is to focus on handwriting ascenders (b,d,k,l,t,) and descenders (f,g,j,p,q,y). Use this PDF to help. Standard Font Handwriting Lined In addition, please practice common exception words ‘here’, ‘were’, ‘there’ and ‘where’.
Have a great weekend everyone. We’re already hearing about the exciting plans you’ve got for the INSET day – enjoy!
