In English this week, we continued to build on the focus text ‘Claude In the city’ by Alex T Smith. We have been writing a story using the characters we created last week and sent them on an adventure. We spun a globe to select a destination, created passports with important information and packed a suitcase! Then we used time connectives and sentences using expanded noun phrases to write about their adventure.
In Maths this week, the children have been counting in 10’s to 100. Recapping one more, one less up to 100. Partitioning 2-digit numbers into tens and ones. We created a 2-digit number with dienes and represented these as part, part, whole. Finally, Counting numbers on a number line to 100. We even took our learning outside and worked in pairs to challenge each other to draw the longest number-line using chunky chalks.
In Phonics this week, the children have been focusing on the diagraphs <oo> as in moon and <oo> as in book. We also built polysyllabic words: Baboon, Balloon, Beetroot, Bloodshed, Bandicoot. Can you think of anymore?
