Sorry, short one as I must rush off. You should have received the parent consultation letters, if not ask your child. I hope all the times are okay. I will see some of you on Monday and the rest on Thursday. I hope you enjoyed the sports day , the children did! The show 'n' tell table will be the RED table. I will post more next week. Have a good weekend. Mr Spring
Where has all the time gone? In English this week the children wrote their own story loosely based around 'Gorilla' by Anthony Brown . The children planned, wrote and then edited their work to create a really good story. Nest week the children are working with the legend of Robin Hood. In maths, a slight diversion from the plan, the children worked at number reasoning and learning how to explain maths works like it does. The children found this very challenging as although some children are very good with maths, they do find it hard to explain what they are doing. For next week we are looking at time. The children have also been working very hard on their moving vehicles. They have finished the decorations and next week will finish by putting on the wheels. It was a great day today (Friday) very colourful with the children in their 'own' clothes. The show 'n' tell table for next week is the GREEN table. You should have received the parent consultation evening letters, could you please return them as soon as possible, with as many time slots as possible. I will do my best to accommodate the times you request. Have a good weekend. Mr Spring
The children have worked very hard after returning after half term. In English the children have been looking at books by Anthony Brown. They have discussed the writing and the pictures used in the books. The children also looked at sentence structure, using conjunctions and tense. We will continue with this topic for the next two weeks, planning and writing our own stories.
In maths the children have been working a lot on word problems. For next week the children will be working on problems, multiplication and division.
The show 'n' tell table for next Friday will be the ORANGE table.
Well, this year is almost at an end, only another half term to go!
The children have been working hard (as usual) this week. We had a couple of tasks that the children had to do and they coped pretty well. The children have finished one of their information tasks, writing a fact sheet about dinosaurs. There will be more of this topic next half term. In maths the children have looked at how to solve word problems, what to look for and what operations to use.
The children have also started their D&T project, which is to design and make a moving vehicle. The children have done the design part and built up the chassis by measuring and cutting wood. They have worked really well. I have asked them to bring in a box to make the body. The children know the sort of size they need.
I hope you enjoyed looking through the children's work on Wednesday, remember if there is anything you would like to discuss, please get in contact.
Now that the hot weather is with us (I hope!) please give your child a hat to bring to school and a water bottle. If you know it is going to be sunny you can also apply sun cream.
