Week beginning 4th November
This week we have been very busy!
We all had a go at writing our own firework poems using adjectives such as zooming, popping and banging. We also included adverbs such as loudly, quickly and wildly. We then performed our fireworks to our friends. Everybody enjoyed hearing the poems.
In maths we have been learning more about addition, we used column addition to solve our equations.
In the afternoons we have learned about Remembrance Day and painted poppy pictures which are now displayed in the classroom. We also compared playground games from the past and today and then created our own pictures based on playground games today.
Well done to our superstar spellers this week. Please ensure spelling books are kept in your child's reading packet ready for Friday.
Spellings this week are -
Week Beginning 28th October 2019
Welcome back to a fun filled week after half term! This week we started the week by doing lots of Halloween learning. In Maths, we have been looking at different ways to represent numbers and counting the tens and ones in each number. We did this with a Halloween twist! We counted things such as pumpkins and sweets and partitioned numbers on spiders.
In English we have been busy writing our own magic potions! We loved writing our own recipes, learning how to use bullet points to make a list of ingredients. Next we wrote our own instructions using adverbs in each one. For example, 1. Carefully pour the slime into the pot.
The children loved writing their own recipes and have done a wonderful job. Can you write a recipe at home for one of your favourite meals?
This week we have also been busy learning about Diwali. We have done this as a whole school and moved around all the different classrooms in school. When we visited Reception we loved learning about some special dancing. When we visited year 1, we made our own Diya lamps. Finally, in year 2 we made our own symmetrical rangoli patterns using shapes! It has been a wonderful and busy first week back.
Well done to our super star spellers this week. Please can everyone make sure that spellings books and reading diaries are brought to school each day. We have new spellings to learn this week which are:
Have a wonderful weekend!
