Learning note for week ending 31st January 2020
This week… We have been learning about powerful verbs in English as well as learning to write using ‘show not tell’ sentences. In maths, we have been comparing and ordering numbers, and also started to explore the links between additive and multiplicative sentences. In topic, we learned about the counties of the UK and used an atlas to familiarise ourselves with them. We thought about how we communicate safely with other people on social media and online games during our computer safety lessons this week. We are really getting into the swing of our recorder lessons now and managed to perform a new song and start to learn another. Keep practising at home!
Reading for pleasure is very important and we would like you to take the opportunity to read whenever you can. Remember to get you parents to sign your reading records if they hear or see you reading.
This week we have been reading:
· The Accidental Prime Minister (class book)
We will be practising the following spellings next week, focusing on words with a common sound. We will be testing you on Friday.
Times tables have already been sent home in your reading records. Keep practising using TTRockstars too! In class, we will be focussing on the seven times tables again.
Next week … In English, we will start to plan and draft our hero myths based on Beowulf. In maths, we will be looking at partitioning and adding numbers with three addends. In topic, we will be attempting to draw maps of the school. In RE, we will be comparing an Islamic story with a Christian story. There will not be a Forest School session next week.
The children have reached their first target in our class jewel jar and their reward is a pyjama party. This will be held on the last Friday afternoon (14th February) before we break up for half term. The children should bring some pyjamas to change into and a teddy (small to medium in size). We will provide some snacks.
Have a fantastic weekend,
Mrs Easey and Mrs Kilpatrick
