Welcome to our weekly blog!

Independent Learning

Maths

In maths this week we have continued to learn about positional language and we will be moving on the explore giving and following directions. We have worked on recognising left and right.

We have continued to work on our numeracy skills:

Our core numeracy skills this week included,

  • adding two collections and finding a total
  • partitioning number patterns
  • consolidating our knowledge of number bonds to 10
  • numeral identification to 10,( focus on 6,7, 8 and 9)
  • identifying the number before a given number up to 10
  • establishing a collection of a given amount
  • consolidating our knowledge of number bonds to 10
  • numeral identification to 10,( focus on 6,7, 8 and 9)
  • identifying the number before a given number up to 10
  • establishing a collection of a given amount

Our challenge activities in numeracy were

  • describing equal groups
  • numeral identification to 30
  • numeral identification to 100
  • ordering off decade patterns of 10 decades
  • identifying the number before a given number up to 30
  • counting short forward or backward sequences of numbers to 30 or 100
  • counting two collections with the both screened ( counting on strategy)
  • finding a subtrahend by counting back

Literacy

This week we have been working on the sounds pr and gr. Our tricky words were of and her.

We have planted beans to grow and used green things to make collages. We had printed using different items.

At writing we have described our bedrooms.

Handwriting focus: b and p

At reading we have continued to work on our reading skills. Alongside the simple reading of the written word, we are developing the children’s reading comprehension skills, exploring the cognitive strategies of activating, inferring, monitoring/clarifying, questioning, searching/selecting, summarizing, and visualising.

Please remember that reading books should be returned by Monday (this is essential as we share the books and if not returned other groups cannot continue with their learning). You might find that your child is very confident when reading the book, remember that we have been working on it at school and that should be the case.

Other areas

We are enjoying using our outdoor area most days!

PE

We have continue to work on our stamina running our mile. This week one of our pupils who runs the Park Run led us!

At our gym session we have worked on jumping and landing skills.

Home learning ideas

  • Share the reading book at home. Your child will be able to read the story as we have been working on it at school.
  • Continue to practice making words and revising all our tricky words using the sound sheet that will go home today. For the tricky words it is important that your child is able to read and write them.
  • Your child might enjoy this game for working on directions
