Two things to try this week 🙂
*we will be researching and preparing solo talks next week on a sportsperson or sport. Discuss what your child could talk about, and research some information at home.
*practise reading analogue and digital clocks
Numeracy and Maths
During this very short week we have started learning about time. Using our knowledge of halves and quarters, we learned about ‘half past’, ‘quarter past’ and ‘quarter to’ on both analogue and digital clocks.
Almost all of us are confident with ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past’ on analogue clocks.
Most of us are confident with ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’, ‘quarter past’ and ‘quarter to’ on analogue clocks.
And a few of us are confident with ‘o’clock’, ‘half past’, ‘quarter past’ and ‘quarter to’ on analogue and digital clocks, so this is definitely something we will keep practising.
If your child is confident with all these things, feel free to start thinking about 5 minute increments like ’10 past’, ’25 past’ and ’20 to’.
Literacy and Language
This week we continued our reflective reading questions, and enjoyed reading our new books in class.
After watching a scene from ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’, we wrote our own imaginative story about going through a magic wardrobe that leads to an enchanted land. We looked at the Big Writing marking scale to see how our creative writing has improved over the year, and what things would make our writing even better.
Health and Wellbeing
I’m sure you’ve heard all about it, but we absolutely loved swimming on Thursday! Everyone really tried their best in the pool, and I was amazed to see what brave and confident water babies we have in the class! We can’t wait for next Thursday!
Thank you so much to our parent helpers for coming along. I really appreciate you giving up your afternoon to help with keeping us safe, getting on and off the bus, the dreaded swimming caps and much more! You were fantastic and really helped make our first swimming trip a smooth one! We couldn’t have done it without you!
