Neptune Class

With only 3 weeks left till the end of term, things are extremely busy in Neptune Class!

This week we are all excited about our Christmas performance at the Princess Theatre on Wednesday. The children have been working really hard to learn their songs, dances and lines. Please remember that it is vital that all children arrive at 8.30am tomorrow morning to catch the coach to our full-dress rehearsal at the theatre. If your child arrives late it will be your responsibility to take them directly to the theatre.

In literacy this week Y1 children will finish writing their invented stories and YR will orally tell theirs.

In maths we will be finishing our unit on addition and subtraction. The children will be using various hands on activities and games to learn more about subtraction. Additionally, Y1 children will be completing their Autumn term assessments.

Also, with the arrival of our class elf on the self today he will be setting the children daily literacy or maths challenges!

Homework will resume this week and will be sent out on Thursday and the Y1s will be tested on their spellings on Wednesday. Please can I ask you to support your child to complete their homework. If you need any help with this, please do not hesitate to ask.

Additionally, please can I remind you the importance of listening to your child read daily. It really does make a tremendous difference. It is also vital that the children bring their reading books and reading record books into school daily.

Finally, all children need to arrive at the theatre at 5.40pm on Wednesday evening dressed in their costumes and plimsoles or similar on their feet. This will allow us time to get them ready and in their places for the show to start at 6pm.

 

Many thanks for your continued support,

 

 

 Jupiter Class

Hello all!

The Christmas play is finally here! I cannot wait to see the whole class perform and I know they will be amazing. I look forward to seeing you all at the performance.

In maths we are continuing to work on our multiplication and division until. We have been working hard to be able to multiply and divide by 3,4,6 and 8. This week will be using this knowledge to start to look at multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. Practicing the times tables with your children at home will really help them in this unit. Getting them to repeat our times table songs is a really simple way of getting them to practice their times tables. Also, In Literacy we are finishing of our Jack and beanstalk unit by writing a short piece of writing about a new character to add to the story.

I am starting to collect a high amount of un-named jumpers in my class uniform box. If you think your child has lost a jumper or any other bit of uniform, then please come have a look.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mr Haslam and Jupiter Class team.
