Spellings for this week are into, back, by, off and this. Please can you ask your child to spot any verbs in their books as we have been looking at verbs this week during our grammar lessons.
Also there is a new maths video on Maths With Parents-
addition and subration by making 10 video and activities.
It would also be great to continue practising writing numbers 1 to 20 in words.
Now that we are well into the second half term, we just wanted to remind all parents and carers about our morning routine. We open the doors at ten to nine, the children say goodbye to you at the door and then they go and hang their things up before they sit down on the carpet. We ask that it is just the children that come into the classroom in a morning now. There are several reasons behind this including safe guarding your children and increasing independence.
We are happy for you to pass on quick messages at the door and for anything that may take a bit longer, we ask that you book an appointment to come see us.
Miss Locke and Mrs Dalton
This week’s spellings are house, put, like, be and called. Please also continue to practise writing the numbers 1 to 20 in words. We have added a new video and activities on the maths with parents website.
Finally, in class this week, we have been looking at questions and the punctuation used for questions. When your child is reading to you at home, could you help them identify any questions in the text and as an extension they could come up with some of their own questions.
Many thanks for your on going support.
We are coming to the end of our KS 1 and Foundation stage topic of the Great Fire of London and the four classes would love to show you some of the work the children have been doing. We have decided to hold an exhibition of our work in the hall after school on Monday night. We would love as many of you as possible to take the time to pop into the hall to have a look at our exhibition after picking up your child on Monday.
Today the children continued to learn about ‘The Great Fire of London.’ We have all enjoyed making Tudor houses and we also enjoyed role playing being a baker who worked on Pudding Lane. We enjoyed getting very messy making dough.
Spellings this week are there, some, have, them and children.
We will also be focusing on capital letters and full stops this week. Please can your child point out capital letters whilst you are reading them a story or they are reading their reading book to you. Many thanks.
Please carry on practising writing numbers 1 to 20 in words. It is great help! The video and maths activities on Maths With Parents(http://www.mathswithparents.com ) is the 2 digit place value video. Thank you for your co-operation.
Please can the Year 1 children who are in Mrs Mckerrow’s Read, Write, Inc group bring in a woolly hat and scarf this week. Many thanks.
Over the last couple of days the children have been using Bee-Bot toys to programme in directions. Their star words that they used were – algorithm, forwards, backwards, left, right and quarter of a turn.
They found what an algorithm is and the created their own algorithm for the Bee-Bot to follow. The children also played a game where they had to give each other directions to follow.
The children have been learning about Hanukkah in RE this week. We talked about the special festival and went on to make Happy Hanukkah cards and Menorahs. We also talked about Abraham and God’s promise to him. The children worked so hard and really enjoyed learning about another religion.
