In English this week, we have continued our topic exploring the book Jemmy Button. The children wrote diary entries as Jemmy which have included complex sentences – our grammar learning this week. We will continue this into next week.
In Maths we have begun our addition and subtraction topic. This week have been focusing on addition using a variety of practical resources to support the written methods. We are moving on to subtraction next week. Please support your child with securing their times table knowledge. Challenges are set on Sumdog as homework and all children are expected to take part. If your child has lost their log-in, we are more than happy to provide another copy.
It was lovely to see so many different book characters on Thursday. Please continue to encourage your children to take part in the reading challenge; the prize for completing the reading challenge and being drawn from the hat is a trip to Rock Up in Whiteley which the children are very excited about.
