Puppets Pals, chicken books, halves and quarters!
Friday 27th March | 2 comments
This week in literacy we have been busy writing our non-fiction books about chickens. We have written about the life cycle, personalities and predators but the favourite page was all about chicken poo!!
The children are very proud of their books and are looking forward to sharing them at our ‘Spring Chicken’ event on Tuesday 31st March. We have also been recording our chicken movies on the iPads and creating our book front covers on the laptops.
In maths we have been learning about halves and quarters of shapes and numbers. Can your child tell you what is half of 10? Half of 16? Quarter of 4? We have also been using our number bonds to help us add 3 digits together. The children had to find the 2 numbers which make 10 and then add the other number e.g. 6 + 4 + 3 =
Our number bond of the week is 17 +3 =20.
We have a busy week next week! On Monday we are going to visit St Johns church, Tuesday is our ‘Spring Chicken’ event and on Thursday the decorated egg competition will be judged and we are having our pyjama party. Phew! We will all be ready for a holiday.
There will be no more spellings or learning log homework until after the Easter holiday. So you will have plenty of time to help your child create their decorated egg and plan a science investigation for the ‘S Factor’ competition. Please continue with lots of reading at home and number fact work. Here are some games that could help.
Thank you to everyone who has returned their reply slip for our trip to Rodley Nature Reserve and to everyone who has offered to help. However we still need more parent helpers. Can you help? We really appreciate all your support on our trips.
Have a great weekend.
