P2c Reflective Friday 11.5.18

It has been a short week back in school after our long weekend, but we have been busy.

 

Reading

No new reading books this week, but back to normal on Monday.

Spelling and literacy.

We have been practising, revising and testing ourselves on our knowledge of the block three and block four tricky spelling words. Please keep revisiting these word lists and practising at home until you are super-confident that you can spell them all.

Maths and Numeracy

We have been practising doubling numbers.

 

We  have been learning to multiply and divide using the 3 times table. Please practise this at home.

 

Other areas of the curriculum

We have started to learn about instruments of the orchestra and the four main sections – brass, strings, woodwind and percussion. We looked closely at a violin and discussed the names of the parts of the instrument such as pegs, sound holes, tailpiece,  chin rest, strings and bridge. We also learned that the bow is made from the hair from a horse’s tail.

In PE we practised some of the skills we will be using for sports day next week.

In our super-hero topic we discussed what makes each one of us special, unique and a hero in our own way.
