We have had an extremely busy week. As it was 'science week' we had a Materials Workshop on Tuesday. Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to help. The children had already covered a topic on materials so I was pleased to see how much they had remembered.
Today was Comic Relief day which was great fun. We had a half an hour's dancing in our class room and then another half an hour in the hall, so the children will probably be tired this evening.
As well as all the fun, we have completed a lot of work. The children planned, edited and published letters in English. In maths they have been interpreting data and working with money. We studied the work of Claude Monet and the children used chalks, oil pastels and watercolour paints to create their own version of 'Monet's Garden.'
We will be continuing to work with money. The children will be comparing values, ordering in terms of value and using money to buy things from our class shop.
It will be our last week focusing on letter writing. Towards the end of the week we will start a new project in English lessons, which will be report writing. The children will be writing, addressing and posting letters to their friends in Year One, so please expect some post this week!
The children will be learning about how the seasons affect animals and birds. They will be learning how animals behave during different seasons.
We will be starting The Easter Story next week. The first lesson will be to watch a children's video of the story, to listen to it being read and finally to role play the story.
D and T
The children will be writing about how they designed their home. They will explain the challenges they met and how they were overcome. They will take a photograph of their model.
The children took a set of spellings home with them today. Please encourage them to carry out 'look, cover, spell and check' a few times each week.
I hope you all have a relaxing weekend.
