We are taking part in Global Diversity Awareness Month, which honours and celebrates the achievements of people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We are taking time to discuss what makes people unique and support global diversity.
The class have been researching Dina Asher-Smith and the children have written facts about her and her recent sporting achievements. The children were excited to discover that she is the first British woman to win a major sprint title, which she did at the World Championships this week.
Spellings will now be given out on a Friday for the following week. Next week we are focusing on the sound /r/ spelt ‘wr’ at the beginning of words. Spellings for next week are: write, written, wrote, wrong, wrap, wrist, wreck, wrestle, wriggle.
In maths this week, the children used two tens frames and counters to help them work out addition calculations. They were encouraged to 'think ten' and fill up the first tens frame to make the sum easier to work out. See if your child can remember the rhyme that Mrs Cohen taught them about this!
Spelling lists are going home on Monday. The words this week are:
knock, know, knee, knitting, knife, gnat, gnaw, gnash, gnome, gnarled.
We will be working on these words throughout the week, exploring their meanings and the spelling rule associated with them. Please work with your child to practise these words, ready to be tested on Friday.
The class have learnt lots of facts about The Great Fire of London.
Over the weekend, see if they can answer the following questions:
- When did it start? Where did it start? Who started it? What happened? Where did the baker and his servants escape to?
What was the problem with the houses?
Challenge- What was different about life then an d now?
Homework books have gone out and spelling sheets will be given out next week. Please return the books by Wednesday. Every child has a reading book. Please make sure you read with them over the weekend and keep it in their bags.
Today the class formed their own rock bands!!! The videos will be posted soon!
We are so proud of the class, they have all settled in extremely well! Over the last couple of days, they have written accounts about themselves and their dream bedrooms. They thoroughly enjoyed designing their dream bedrooms...We apologise in advance for any requests they may now have. Many designed rooms with private pools and roller coasters!!!
In Maths we explored doubling and they learnt how to access the resources in the Maths trays.
In Art they learnt how to mix paint colours and paint a portrait. Today they were very excited to learn the first song in our new music curriculum and we finished the day thinking about what makes a good friend.
We have taken lots of photos but they won’t load at the moment!! Please bare with us and we will get them all up next week.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to meeting you next week.
