Weekly update: Friday 17th June

 

We have settled really well into our new classroom this week. It has been lovely to see the children helping their Reception Class buddies in the mornings walk to their ‘new’ classrooms too. Well done everyone!

In maths we are looking again at decimals. We have been adding and subtracting decimals; remembering to use place-value charts to support with lining the numbers up in the correct columns.

In English, we have begun a new book, ‘The Nowhere Emporium’. We have really enjoyed the mysterious start and the children have written some fabulous Haikus, as well as a variety of different sentence types, to describe the shop.

In other learning: In RE we have reviewed our learning about Islam from last time and really enjoyed listening to a typical ‘call to prayer’; in PSHE we have reviewed our understanding of responsibilities and chosen to look further into the current news topic on banning smartphones for under 14 year olds; in science we have delved into our new topic ‘Earth & Space’; in PE we learnt about fielding techniques in a tense game of rounders!

Thank you for a great first week!

 

 

Home Learning

Maths:

This term, here are some ideas of things that you could do at home to support the children's learning in class:

* Research and produce a non-chronological report about an aspect of space that you are interested in! 

* Create a model of the solar system.

* Research an artist of your choice.

* Design, make and cook some bread - this could be to include different tastes from around the world or have an Olympic theme!
