In our groups last week we were adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. In mental agility we practised halving numbers. Please see the maths grid your child brought home for ideas of how you can help your child in numeracy.
New spelling words were given out on Monday and we are doing various activities to help us learn these words and patterns. Dictation is on Fridays. Please see Spelling City for a list of your child’s words. Please use the spelling grid for games to play at home.
We will be finishing our reading books on Monday and Tuesday of this week and the books will be collected in towards the end of the week.
We wrote about our trip to the Botanics after discussing what we enjoyed, what we learned and how it could have been improved.
We have used iPads and information books to make fact posters about plants.
We developed our understanding of how trees depend on insects and on one another.
TRIP TO BOTANICS- We had planned to extend our knowledge of trees by participating in The Secrets Of Trees programme . Unfortunately the weather was so rainy we were confined to the glass houses. The children were able to learn about the various cacti, fruit trees and ferns growing there.
Linked to our planting of sunflowers we learned a little bit about Van Gogh’s life and then mixed colours to paint our own versions of The Sunflowers.
We have continued to develop our tennis skills.
This will be the last blog of the term.
