Week beginning 17th September
… and on Friday afternoon, thanks to one child in particular and closely followed by the rest of the class, I learnt just how annoying ‘Baby Shark’ is. Thanks!
Thank you for your help this week in organising the children, making sure that they have all the right things at the right times. On a similar note, could you please keep an eye on the weather forecast, and dress your child accordingly during this more changeable time. As you know, we are trying to instil good routines in class, which will enable the children to maximise their learning time.
This week, we will continue to focus on the book, Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit, where we will be concentrating on sentence structure, description and adding extra information. The children seem to have enjoyed the history behind the text, which we hope forms a good inspiration for their own writing. In Maths, we develop our knowledge of place value further this week, using partitioning, before moving onto comparing numbers.
Science started last week and we hope the children have shared with you some of the new words they have learnt, hopefully not at the dinner table though! This week we will look at the names and uses of teeth, both in humans and other animals, making the links between teeth and diet.
Home learning this week includes both a maths task and a comprehension/RE task, which should be returned by Friday. Spellings will start this week on the same basis as last term, with the children being split between the seven adults in Lower Key Stage 2.
Congratulations to Elliot and Lowri who have been voted by the class to serve as our school councillors this year and also Jessica G who received our behaviour award last week.
