In literacy we have been reading the story ‘Nothing’ by Mick Inkpen. Nothing is a little bear who gets left in the attic and doesn’t know his name or who his family is. It’s a lovely book and the children enjoyed listening to it.
They all talked about their special toy and wrote about it using simple sentences.
In phonics we revised ck, nk, sh and ch. Please help your child practise reading the phonemes and words we have put in their reading record. We have also learnt how to read and write the following common exception words – I, my, do, to, is, no, go, me, of. Your child needs to practise these words in their red spelling book which they brought home today. We have also practised forming o, g and q cursively and the digits 3, 4, 5 correctly.
In maths we have been working on adding and taking away one. We used number lines, counters, tens frames and lots more to find out what is one more or one less than a given number. Can your child show you at home?
In history we introduced the concept of a time line. Using cubes to represent each year we placed different aged people on a time line. They had fun trying to guess how many cubes the teachers would need!!
The children all enjoyed using ‘Bug Club’ in their computing lesson. They have all brought home a letter with their user name and password so they can play it with you too.
In PHSE this half term the children will be thinking about playground games and working together to create a class set of playground rules. They had fun learning some new games this week.
Thank you to everyone who has returned their soup reply – the children are looking forward to cooking and eating it!
Have a great weekend.
