BLOGS & HOMEWORK
This week in Neptune class we are starting a new Talk 4 Writing unit. Our model text is a recount called ‘Mr Pig’. We will begin by story mapping it and creating actions to help us learn the text.
In maths we will continuing our unit on addition and subtraction. A big part of our learning will be based around the children becoming secure in knowing their number bonds to 10 or 20. This week we will be exploring how we can use our knowledge of number bonds to 10 to help us find number bonds to 20. We will be carrying out lots of practical activities and games to help us with our learning.
In RE we will be starting a new unit on Revelation. The children will be learning about what a parable is and exploring what Jesus is teaching us through the parable ‘The Good Samaritan’.
Homework will be sent out on Thursday and the Y1s will be tested on their spellings on Wednesday. Reception children to continue to learn their tricky words (these are words that cannot be decoded). 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, I would like to say a big thank you to Shelia and Bennie’s Great Nanny for coming in last week to talk to us about the toys they played with when they were children. We really enjoyed it!
Many thanks for your continued support.
This week we are continuing with Ancient Egypt topic! The children seem to be really enjoying it and they are on their way to becoming heroic historians. In literacy we are working on our recount writing and in maths we are back to focusing on multiplication and division. We are really focusing on reading within class at the moment, so if you could listen to your child read as much as possible this would be muchly appreciated.
There is class football match on Tuesday and the selected children have been sent a letter and we have another class ukulele session on Thursday. PE with Torquay United will happen on Wednesday and Friday afternoon this week. The children must have their full PE kit in school on this day.
