Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.
Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.
Thank you to all those parents who attended our Phonics workshop this week. In Literacy we have created a non-fiction piece about owls and wrote a description about an ogre who lives in the woods.
Next week we will start learning about the Gruffalo’s Child and continue to work on sentence structure.
In Numeracy we learned about subtraction and completed number sentences that had missing numbers.
Next week we will compare add and subtract numbers using a range of manipulatives.
We had a wonderful experience learning about the extraordinary life of Paralympian David Weir as part of International Men’s day on Tuesday and enjoyed writing facts about him.
Thank you to all those who attended our Open Afternoon.
The children really enjoyed showing you what they have learned during this term.
In Literacy, the children have used a range of openers and conjunctions to write about various underwater scenes.
Our text for next term is The Gruffalo.
This week in Numeracy we have learned how to use a number line to help us add and subtract numbers which we will continue next term.
Since the weather is getting colder, please ensure that your child has an outdoor PE Kit (tracksuit bottoms and a jumper).
We have sent home TT Rockstar logins to give the opportunity to try out Rock Star Maths.
Please see the handout for details on how to login.
Thank you to all those who attended the coffee morning on Wednesday, the children had a wonderful time and raised lots of money for a great cause.
This week we have used greater than, less than and equal signs in Numeracy.
The children have enjoyed learning songs to help them recognise them and how to use the signs correctly.
In Literacy we painted and wrote about an underwater scene.
All the paintings looked amazing and the children really enjoyed creating them.
Thank you to all those parents who have used your child’s ‘planners’ to show all the wonderful things that you have done at home.
Just a reminder that we look at them on a Monday and a Friday.
