Story endings!

E-Safety

This week in English the children have been planning their non-chronological reports about a rainforest animal. In maths the children have been using numicon and their own number lines to subtract. In computing we have been looking at how to keep safe when on the internet. All the children know a special rhyme to help them make the correct choices when on the internet.

We finally become authors!

This week in maths we have been drawing our own number line to add numbers. In English we have been writing our own stories based on the book ‘The Pig in the Pond’. In science we found out information about rainforest animals using safe search and non-fiction texts.

Marvellous Measuring!

In English this week the children have been planning their own version of ‘The Pig in the Pond’ and have been using hot seating as a way of exploring one of their characters in more detail.

The children have enjoyed using rulers and metre sticks to measure the length of objects.

During science we looked at the diet of rainforest animals and used specific vocabulary: carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.

 

Scarlet Class: This week I have sent home a copy of the common exception words identifying the words the class find difficult to spell. Please practise these at home.

 

Crimson Class: On Monday the children were sent home a highlighted list of words, in their homework books, that children struggle to spell correctly. Please practise these at home.
