What a busy week of learning!
Firstly, thank you to all of the parents who were able to donate their unused cardboard. The children learned how to think like engineers and they planned, designed, predicted, tested and reviewed their projects. They spent the day looking at different types of bridges around the world. They focused on trying to make the bridges strong and sturdy. All the children showed fantastic team work and supported one another throughout the day.
In English, we have focused on the book The Day the Crayons Quit and have been writing letters to the crayons in the story. We have focused on exclamations, questions, statements and commands. If you would like to continue to practice letter writing at home, your child can choose another crayon to write to. Here is the link for the story .
In Math, we have been adding and subtracting one-digit numbers from two-digit numbers. If you would like to do some more practice at home, please click on the link:
We have been focusing on the following digraphs /oo/ /o/ /u_e/ /ew/ /ue/ in words like boot, do, flute, knew, blue.
We are really enjoying the Great Fire of London topic and have learned how to bake bread with our lovely chefs.
We had a special tennis taster session this week and worked on our control and accuracy.
Next week we will be writing letters to the care home. We have not heard back from anyone so we assume that you are all happy for your child to write a letter and sign with just their first name.
In Maths, we will continue to learn about addition and subtraction.
Please can you help us ensure all children have the appropriate uniform and PE kits. We will be continuing to have high expectations to help them have pride of themselves as learners.
