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.

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.
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.
Homework will be posted on the blog every half term showing you the day it will be discussed with the children and the task. Each task will relate to an objective covered during the week.
This term we would like the children to work on their spellings of the common exception words. Lists have been given out but further copies can be obtained from the teachers.
Friday 13th January 2017: In Maths we are learning to measure in cm using a ruler. See if you can measure some of the objects in your house and record your findings. As a challenge see if you can accurately draw lines with a ruler and label them with their length.
Friday 20th January 2017: Our topic this term is Rainforests. Using the internet or a non-fiction book, find out about an animal that lives in the rainforest, including the type of food that they eat.
Friday 27th January 2017: In English we are looking at features of a non-fiction text. Choose a non-fiction book and write down the features you can find in the book. These may include: Contents page, Index, Glossary, headings, sub-headings, bold print, diagrams, pictures, labels and captions.
Friday 3rd February 2017: In Maths we are working on addition and subtraction. Write some number sentences and show your working out.
Please bring the homework books back week beginning 6th February 2017 to be marked.
Welcome back, we hope everyone has had a joyful break and ready for the new term.
In English we have begun the term looking at the story ‘The Pig in the Pond’ while in maths we have been using the symbols < > = to compare numbers and calculations.
