Wow! This week has whizzed by!
In maths, the children have used partitioning as a means of doubling and halving.
In Literacy, the children have written recounts of their school trip. They have also explored more sea-themed vocabulary, much of it specific to waves e.g. engulfing
Why not try asking your child to use a new word in a sentence?
In Geography, the children have been describing their local area, using street and aerial view maps to help them.
The children are becoming more fluent readers and this is largely due to regular practise at home. Thank you for supporting your child in this way. It is having a very positive impact! We have been doing lots of class reading, enjoying and discussing books together. Additionally, the children have been doing lots of independent reading straight after the register. They have grown in independence and can now sustain quiet reading time for 10-15 minutes!
The children have been very creative this week!
They have painted a sandy scene, sky watercolour wash and made and decorated origami boats! They then collated the artwork to make one scene.
Look how fabulous they are…
Have a great weekend. 🙂
P.S. I wonder if our class Chrysalises will emerge next week? The children have been loving watching the process!
