Leaves, trees, instructions and subtracting!
Friday 9th October | 3 comments
We have been learning about writing instructions in our literacy lessons this week. We thought about how we had made our soup and wrote our own set of instructions using bossy verbs such as wash, chop and peel. Can your child remember the correct instructions to make our delicious soup? In our handwriting lesson we continued to practise letters from the curly letter family. So far we have learnt how to form c, o, a and d correctly. This week we wrote g and q. The children are all enjoying their guided reading sessions and are keen to read within their groups. Remember that your child can change their home reading books before and after school.
In maths we have been focusing on subtraction. We used autumn objects such as conkers and acorns to help us solve practical subtractions. We then moved onto using number tracks and number lines to take away. Some children worked on finding the difference between two sets of objects too. Can you continue with some more subtracting at home?
Our number bond of the week is 6+ 4 =10, 4+6 = 10, 10-4=6, 10-6=4.
The fantastic five challenges this week were
1. Leaf rubbings
2. Making ‘Autumn Soup’ in the outdoor area
4. Rhyming soup – cutting and sticking objects that rhyme
5. Using adjectives to describe vegetables
In our science lesson we looked carefully at leaves and seeds. We labelled our autumn displays. Thank you to everyone who has collected some great leaves and seeds. The children used an identification sheet to find out what trees some of the leaves had come from. Can they remember any of the tree names?
Remember we are going on our trips to Denso Nature Reserve next week. The children all need a packed lunch and sensible footwear and a waterproof coat.
