This week we have been writing about sea creatures in Literacy. In Maths we have revisited ‘counting on’ to solve addition. The children have used number lines to jump along. Tomorrow we will use 100 squares to solve addition. We will look at the different ways you can quickly move along it to find the answers. For example jumping down in tens. In PE we have started to think about Sports Day. The children are practising the different skills they will need for the various games.
Wow…. so the academic year is nearly complete and what fun we have had! The children have been learning about time in Maths. We have played What’s the Time Mr Wolf to practise making the times correctly on individual clocks. In literacy the children have been writing sentences. We have been writing narratives, using capital letters, finger spaces and fullstops. We will be sending home some activities that you could complete during the half term!
Hopefully we can enjoy some sunshine! 🙂
This week the children have listened to the story of ‘The Night Pirates’. They have continued work on character descriptions and have been practising writing a sequence of sentences. In Maths we have been thinking about time. At the beginning of the week they used sand timers, clocks and stop watches on the i-Pads to complete challenges using different time restraints.
The children look forward to their visit from Paddington Bear tomorrow. Don’t forget they can bring in a teddy for the day and a donation for the scooter wash!
This week not only have the children enjoyed the sunshine, but they have also been enjoying doubling and halving activities in Maths. In class we are exploring pirate stories and discussing the characters, setting and story lines. Tomorrow we are going to be thinking about rhyming words.
As part of the summer term, we will also begin to get the children ready for Year One. Ways in which you can help the children do this include activities that support them in being independent as possible, but also practising skills such as handwriting and digit formation. The children are always learning new information and sometimes their minds can be occupied with new facts! So we will spend some time revisiting learning and practising basic skills. This will ensure they can secure their knowledge and develop independence ready for Year One.
International Week has been fantastic and the children have been really enjoying it. As part of our class based work, the children have had fun learning lots about different countries in Africa, including having a go at reading and writing ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic numbers. The workshops based on different countries from around the world that the children have experienced as part of ‘International Week’ include; Indian dancing, African tribal drumming, traditional New Zealand action songs, Italian and Brazilian story telling, Castanets and origami. Thank you for all your continued support this week. The children also enjoyed the yummy international food stalls after school.
This week in Maths the children have been adding the value of coins together to pay for items. They have been reading and writing letters to Jim Lad the pirate from our story; The Pirates Next Door, in Literacy. Thank you for supporting the children’s communication and language development, by sending in objects from your Easter break for ‘Show and Tell’.
This week the children have been exploring and comparing weight in Maths. They have been developing their investigation skills and use of language whilst using the balance scales. In Literacy we have continued to work on our comprehension skills focusing on non-fiction. We have also been exploring different interesting pictures in class and then thinking of our own sentences we could write for them. We are super proud of the progress they continue to make with their independent writing!
