This week we have been learning:
Maths and Numeracy
In mental maths we practised counting in 3s and 4s, we played games and sang songs to help us do this. Please keep practising at home. If your child is finding counting in 3s and 4s tricky, practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
This week we looked at place value and reminded ourselves about hundreds, tens and units. Some of us looked at even bigger numbers. We completed some written work on adding one more, ten more, one hundred more to two digit and three digit numbers. We also took one less, ten less and one hundred less away from two and three digit numbers.
We all got a new reading book and thought of a name for our reading group. Please make sure your child has their purple folder with their reading book and purple reading jotter with them every day. Some children have not yet brought their purple folder to school, please could you give them to your child to bring in.
We did a variety of activities to help us to learn our spelling words and we had dictations today.
As part of our reading activities we wrote a different ending to ‘Operation Night Monster’ and spoke about the beginning, middle and end of the story.
We are really enjoying our class novel and we created our own character who could be a new member of the Secret Seven.
We are continuing to work on our fitness levels and are playing games to help us warm up.
We got the opportunity to play with the loose parts materials today.
The class discussed what religion is and what we know already. We watched two stories from the Muslim religion and talked about the terms: Allah, prophet, Quran.
Have a good weekend everyone.
