Week commencing Monday 18th September, 2017. 

 

In Maths we are going to be comparing numbers and using the < and > symbols. We are also regrouping and adding different numbers. We are still doing lots of work on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to make sure they get stuck in our heads - keep on asking us to show you at home and prepare to be amazed by our magical maths!

 

In Literacy we are continuing with our work on 'The papaya that spoke!' We are going to be doing some hot seating and thinking about what the characters in the story think and feel, writing about sections of the story and drawing images to go with the text. We are also going to be writing about last Friday and the mysterious case of the missing papaya - ask us where we found it!

 

In Topic we are starting a new Science unit all about materials and their uses. We will be exploring our classroom to see what different materials we can find, and thinking about why certain materials are better for certain jobs - ask us some questions at home to see what we know, for example 'Why would a chair made out of paper be a bad idea?'.

 

In PE we are continuing to develop our general agility skills and completing our gymnastics unit. We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays - please make sure we have our PE kits in school, named and on our pegs!

 

 

 

Week commencing Monday 25th September, 2017. 

 

In Maths we are going to be looking at place value. We are going to be using lots of hands on resources such as coins and diennes to help us to secure this concept. We will also be adding 3 single digit numbers together, for example 5 + 2 + 1 = ? and looking at ways of making this nice and easy to do.  

 

In Literacy we are starting to write our own stories, using 'The papaya that spoke' as a basic frame. We have changed the characters into our own creations and will be writing all about them...ask us what our stories are about! Will we have talking sandwiches or talking muffins? You will have to wait and see!

 

In Topic we are carrying on with our Science unit all about materials and their uses. We will be investigating how different materials can be manipulated and changed by bending them, pulling them, twisting them and more. We will also be talking about why recycling is so important and what impact certain materials can have on our planet. Ask us to help you with the recycling at home and talk with us about which things can be recycled or reused!

 

In PE we are continuing to develop our general agility skills and completing our gymnastics unit. We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays - please make sure we have our PE kits in school, named and on our pegs!
