Hello everyone

Here’s our update to let you know what we’ve been learning this week.

We have continued to work on time.We were drawing hands on analogue clocks and writing numbers on digital ones to show quarter past and quarter to. We have spoken about our routines and what we might be doing at quarter past and quarter to the hour throughout the day. We have also worked on converting written analogue time to digital . This is quite challenging , especially the quarter to times. More practice definitely needed with this! Our numeracy work has been saying the number 10 before/after a given number.

In literacy we began our spelling programme and the children have been split into groups with their own lists of words to work on. These will be added to Spelling City shortly and shared with you so you can help at home. The children will take part in a variety of activities over a two week block to help them learn the spelling pattern they are focusing on.

We have continued to work on answering written questions in reading. We are practising reading the relevant pages again to find the information we need and then writing the answers in sentences – trying not to start with the word because.

In writing we have been working on sentence openers again, thinking about different ways of starting a sentence. The children worked very hard on a piece of imaginative writing. We are encouraging everybody to read their writing over to check that they have thought about the star steps we are working on that day.

We are starting a new topic on Food Chains. The children talked about how and what they want to learn.

In PE we were working on netball skill and general fitness.

In French we revised some words for colour by singing them to a well known tune- ask your child to explain!

We have started making firework pictures using acrylic paint and pastels. We will finish these next week.

Your child is coming home with a piece of paper about a Christmas card competition. This is entirely voluntary and is to be done at home. Please see email from Mrs George for further information.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
