Our last week :(

The children had lots of fun programming the 'bee-bots' around the classroom, estimating the distance and navigating the corners. Please see photos below.

We had a creative Big Maths Day which the children enjoyed writing their numbers and solving maths problems. Please see photos below.

Next week: In English and ICT, the children will be recording their voices (singing, talking and reading a book) on sound buttons.

In Maths we will carry out a variety of maths games and problem solving questions using all our knowledge we have learnt over the year.

Tuesday is final friendship groups for this year and sharing assembly.

Wednesday during the day is the annual teachers’ vs year 6 rounders' match.

Wednesday afternoon KS1 will have a party. Please could you supply your child with a small snack, we will supply drinks. Children can bring in their 'party' clothes to change into after lunch.

Thursday morning the children will watch the year 6 children perform their play.

Friday is year 6 leavers’ assembly and parade and we finish school at 2pm. At the end of the day please could you meet your child near the bike/scooter shelter as it will be very busy with parents.

Have a great weekend

What beautiful summer weather we are having, I hope it will last throughout the summer!

In English the children have enjoyed writing their letters with their reasons as to why they would not like the school to stay open until 6pm every day. ( I did have to explain that this was not a true statement,  as a few children got a little worried and thought that they would not be able to carry on with their after school activities).

Next week the children will write their own version of ‘The Little Red Hen’. We will look at the punctuation in detail prior to their story. This will be an independent piece of writing and the success criteria will be: capital letters, finger spaces, commas, full stops, exclamation marks, speech marks, adjectives and neat handwriting on the line.

In maths the children completed numerous activities and looked at number patterns in detail.

Next week we will learn to identify numbers, place value, fractions, adding and subtracting over 20.

In ICT we will be following instructions and control small robots called 'Bee-Bots'. The children will learn to move the Bee-bot forwards estimating and predicting the distance, backwards and sideways.

On Wednesday is our ‘Big Maths Day’ the children will write numbers with their class in the hall on a large piece of paper. All parents/carers are invited to join in, I look forward to seeing you there our time is 1.15 for 30 minutes.

On Thursday the children will spend time in their new class after break.

Spellings for Friday are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Have a wonderful weekend

Good afternoon, we have had a fun busy sunny week. The children thoroughly enjoyed sports day, here are a few photos, thankfully the weather was kind to us and not too hot!

 Next week in English the children will learn about informal letters. They will write a postcard to a made up person from one of the countries we have discussed and learnt about in Geography.

Next week in Maths the children will be adding and subtracting 1 digit numbers to and from 2 digit numbers along with recapping money and finding change from 10p and 20p.

Pre-learning: Please look and discuss the value of coins and notes with your children. If you have time you could play shops, this will help with them finding the correct money using a variety of coins or finding the correct change from a larger coin.

Spellings for Friday are: book, took, foot, wood and good.

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday for your parent consultations.
