What have we learned?
We have been learning about the soft g sound. We noticed it’s always followed by an e. We played each others spelling games.
We made instructions about how to make animal friendly reindeer food. We watched a bit more of dragon slayer and thought about describing the dragon slayer using powerful verbs and adjectives.
Also we have learnt about how to take notes from a text.
Numeracy and Maths:
We have been subtracting using formal methods (column addition). We’ve looked at sums that include exchanging using two 2 digit numbers. We try not to call it borrowing as we don’t pay it back!
In Time, we have looked at o’clock and half hour times and have been solving problems to do with time.
In Topic we have planned, designed and made our weather instruments. We took them outside to test them out. We worked cooperatively in our table groups to make the instruments.
In ICT we started to make a Powerpoint about weather.
What have we enjoyed?
“I’ve enjoyed practising the Christmas songs at the Christmas singalong.” Alfie
“We enjoyed opening the Advent calendar.” Isla-Grace
“We’ve enjoyed playing the spelling games that we made.” Daniel
“I loved making the weather instruments.” Katie
What have we found challenging?
Trying to make the weather instruments work properly, making the spelling games properly so that other people could understand them, taking away sums with exchanging.
What would we like to learn next week?
Everyone is looking forward to watching the P1 Nativity on Monday and going to the Pantomime on Tuesday. We’re also looking forward to Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day next Friday (15th).
All learning stories are coming home today. Please read the Literacy and Maths comments written for this term, write a comment of your own, and return to school on Monday or Tuesday. Many thanks for your support with this.
