We had a problem this week in English. Our teacher had a pointy, red hat which went missing! We were suspicious of some adults in the school however, we struggled to decide if anyone was guilty of stealing it. We then read the story ‘I want my hat back’ and acted as the rabbit, bear and mole to ask questions. We then wrote the questions down ensuring there was a capital letter and question mark. Here is some extra learning if you would like to have a go at home 24.2.23 English
In phonics this week, we have been learning the /ar/ sound spelt /ar/ /a/ /al/ /au/. We have also learnt some more polysyllabic words: bargain, argue, margin, parsnip, starfish. If you would like to do a reading comprehension at home, here is a short text about the life cycle of a bean 24.2.23 Reading
In Maths this week, we have been focusing on addition within 20, doubles and near doubles. We have been using our number facts to help use answer addition equations within 20. Eg ‘If I know that 4 + 5 = 9, then 14 + 5 = 19’. Here are some sheets you can do at home if you’d like. 24.2.23 Maths
In Science this week, we discussed plants and how they grow, why we have them, where they come from. Then the children observed and tasted different fruits and vegetables using adjectives to describe them.
