Even though we have only had a four day week because of Good Friday, what a busy week we have had! I think that we all deserve the long Easter weekend to recover!
This week in Maths we have focused on time. We have recapped o’clock and half past and have learnt quarter past and quarter to on an analogue clock. Next week we will be working on fractions of shapes and numbers, finding halves and quarters.
In Literacy we have continued with our non-fiction work and yesterday we had a go at writing our own instructions for how to make chocolate crispie cakes. In our grammar work we have looked at capital letters; finding misplaced capital letters in a sentence and writing capital letters correctly, we are going to continue with this next week. The ‘Sound of the Week’ this week has been ‘ou’ as in ‘shout it out’ next week it is ‘oy’ as in ‘toy for a boy’. Please practice at home writing words with this sound in.
On Tuesday we dissected fish! We did this to find out if fish are vertebrates or invertebrates. The children loved this and all the children were very interested in the different body parts.
On Tuesday we had a special visit from Miss Linsley’s tortoise, the children thought of great adjectives to describe him and we found out some very interesting facts. Next week we will be doing an end of topic ‘Animal Kingdom’ quiz to see what the children have learnt in our topic this term. We will also be having a go at making animals out of clay.
My Star of the week is Melissa. Melissa is becoming much more independent in her writing and really impressed me with a fantastic set of instructions on how to make chocolate crispie cakes. She had remembered capital letters, used superb sentence starters and conjunctions. Well done Melissa keep up this fantastic work, I am very proud of you!
Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school with them on Thursdays, there are still a number of children who are coming to school without it. Please continue to keep reading at home with your children whenever possible; accessing Reading Eggs and Mathletics and practising spellings and number formation. Spellings and Maths homework were sent out in book bags tonight. Due to being so busy yesterday we did not have time to fit in this week’s spellings so we will do the test first thing on Tuesday morning, please learn the new spellings too.
If you need to speak to me please contact me on my email email@example.com or arrange a time to come and meet with me.
Have a lovely, restful Easter weekend.
