THIS WEEK IN CLASS
Thank you everyone for supporting our Sport Relief day on last Friday. The children had a great afternoon taking part in various fun sporting activities whilst raising money for such a worthy cause. I am sure Miss Bond will let us know how much we raised soon!
This week in Literacy we will be innovating our information text about chickens to a new animal. The children will be concentrating on using adjectives to describe our new animal. We will also be exploring using the conjunctions ‘and’, ‘but’, ‘so’ to join simple sentences to form compound sentences.
In maths we will be starting a new unit on measure. We will be using non-standard units to measure concrete objects and carryout investigations involving length and height.
Sorry for my absence. I should be back at some point this week and we will be kicking on with our current units. Last week was our assessment week and despite my absence the children were excellent, and I am so proud of all of them! We are finishing our lent unit this week in preparation for Easter and we are moving to the end of our History unit.
This week we will continuing our literacy unit about an explanation text and the children will be starting to write their final write on the processes of turning someone into a mummy. The children have really enjoyed this unit and have taken the information they have gained in our Egyptian unit and are putting this into their writing. In maths we are starting our fractions unit and we have got lots of fun activities for the children to take part in to further the children’s knowledge.
PE is on Friday this week and the children will require their PE kit for this day. However, I think I would be a good idea if the children could can have their PE kit with them every day, just in case of a change in schedule.
Parents evening in is on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. At the moment this is planned to go ahead. However, if I have not returned then this will be moved. Miss Bond will let you know as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Haslam and Jupiter Class Team.
The children have been working extremely hard recently and I hope they enjoyed their reward in the form of a picnic.
We are coming to the end of our explanation text and will hopefully be finished by the end of the week. In Maths we are still working on statistics which is a fun topic and one the children are enjoying.
With everything that is going on at the moment if anyone has any worries or questions please do not hesitate to come and see me. Parents evening is still going forward and if you would like a meeting please book ASAP.
This week promises to be slightly less crazy than the last but still jam packed nevertheless. Swimming will be happening on Tuesday and normal and the children will need their PE kit in school all week. We will begin a new short unit of writing this week based around fantasy tales. I hope the children will be extremely enthused by this! In maths, we will begin working on area and perimeter so anything the children can do around this at home will be appreciated. Homework this week will be focusing around this. Please can the children practise the following words this week for their spellings:
Can they also find the dictionary definition and put the word into a written sentence.
We hope that the weather remain dry so that the children can begin to use the astro turf again without becoming too muddy. If they would like to bring older shoes in for playtime, this will not be a problem. We look forward to sharing their work with you at parents evening appointments.
