Class 1 have had a great last week of this half term. We have started to write our own version of The Journey where a little boat finds itself on a journey travelling from a stream, lake, waterfall, estuary and eventually the sea. All the children have tried hard to showcase all the new skills they have learned in phonics and spelling practice at home.
We have now completed our place value work in maths and will begin work on addition and subtraction after the holidays.
We will continue with our water theme for a few more weeks before we begin a lovely new topic called "Starry Night" which is mainly an art topic focussing on the "Starry Night" painting by Vincent Van Gogh.
Have a lovely half term holiday.
On Monday we began rugby season in our PE lessons, making the most of the good weather, we have a bit of work to do on our passing skills!
In maths we've been working hard to master our methods for subtraction, while in English we left "Matilda" behind to move onto an exciting new text called "The Labyrinth"
During topic work the children have continued to learn more about the Nile, producing colourful fact files which are being added to our Egyptian display. Finally, after a long absence, Dougal has returned to Class 2, causing much excitement......I will leave this to the children to explain!
Last week we had some maths assessments to see what we hard learnt about place value and to indicate what we need to learn to improve using the four operations.
We read War Horse in English and are waiting to see what happens to Joey!
In maths last week we finished up our learning on numbers to 10. It is important that we know these numbers inside and out before moving onto "teen" numbers. Next week will start to look at 2D shapes!
In phonics we started to learn how to segment and blend sounds. This is a really important skill which we will need when we start to read words! We have nearly finished learning our Gruffalo dance and look forward to performing it to our parents!
