In Phonics this week, we have been focusing on the ‘ee’ sound spelt /e/ (we) and /ea/ (eat). Please continue to read your child’s phonics book daily at home.
In English this week, we read The Jolly Postman and have explored many different fairytales. Our focus has been to write sentences using a capital letter, finger space and full stops, and as a challenge the children have been trying to include some adjectives for description. If you would like to do some learning at home, please encourage your child to write a story about meeting a dragon and bring it into class to read.
In Maths, we have been focusing on greater than, less than and equal to. The children have also been matching different amounts and completing ‘odd one out’ challenges. You can continue this learning at home by using two different amounts of objects and having your child use the < > = signs to compare.
In Science, we learnt all about the wind and what happens to us, objects and the world when different strengths of wind blows. As a class we made a windsock and used a compass to determine the direction the wind was blowing. This is something your child could recreate at home.
In Phonics, we will be continuing to learn the ‘ee’ sound spelt /ey/ and /y/.
In English, we will be preparing to write for the writing showcase on Friday and will be focusing on using the five senses to describe.
In Maths, we will be ordering and comparing numbers.
If you would like to provide snack for your child, please ensure that it is healthy; fruit, vegetables, crackers, rice cakes etc NO NUTS! However, if not we do have fruit and vegetables in school that your child is welcome to have.
