Fun falling into a painting!

We have been working hard to find addition and subtraction fact families. If 12+1=13 we also know that 1+12=13. The children have also realised from these facts we can make subtractions such as 13-1=12. We also worked with our learning partner to find the missing numbers of addition and subtraction facts too.
This week we have read the story ‘Katie’s Picture Show’. In this book Katie explores an art gallery and touches the paintings and falls into them and has lots of amazing adventures.
We were very excited when we fell through a picture frame into a painting called ‘Winter’ by Zuzana Chalupova. This inspired us to plan our own stories with a problem and resolution.
In phonics we have focused on oi/oy, ee/ea/ey/e-e and i-e/igh.
We enjoyed sharing our T Rex books with our Year 5 reading buddies. They were very impressed with them!
We have been thinking about roles and responsibilities. We began by doing a ‘Talk with your feet’ task. The children were shown a picture of someone doing a job e.g. tidying a bedroom and had to decide whose responsibility it was – parents, children, people who work at school or everyone. It led to some great discussions. We then wrote a class set of responsibilities which included tidying our classrooms, helping setting the table at home and saving the World!!
We have been busy adding the finishing touches to our canvases. We can’t wait for you to see them next Thursday! Thank you for your £1 contributions on Parent Pay.
Have a great weekend.
