Good afternoon, it was a very fun and productive week back.
In English the children enjoyed acting out and re writing the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ or ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. This was an independent activity and the children checked their work against the class targets.
Next week, in English the children will be listening to a story called 'Dragon Dinosaur', which has been told for hundreds of years in China. They will be re-telling parts of the story and they will share their favourite part of the story with their peers. The children will talk about the animals in the story and learn some facts about some of the deadliest animals that they could use in their story. We will then talk about and read a variety of traditional tales. One of the books we will read is called 'The house that Jack built'. The children will sequence the story and will choose their favourite traditional tale to write a sentence explaining why they have chosen that story.
Pre-Learning: Learn some facts about some of the deadliest animals or read some traditional tales.
In Maths we counted in 2's looking at pairs and even numbers. We carried out activities learning to count in 5/s and 10s. The child enjoyed looking at fractions and using paper and shapes to learn a half, quarter, 2 halves make a whole and 2 quarters make a half.
Next week: The children will find and begin to know doubles to double 10. We will revise pairs to 5, 6,7,8,9 and 10.
Pre-Learning: Practice doubling numbers.
Spellings for Friday are:
Group 1: he, I, of.
Group 2: five, ride, like, time, side.
Thursday is World Book Day; the children can dress up as their favourite book character and bring in their favourite book. (No football outfits please).
Have a great weekend
