Good Afternoon Class 1,
Wow! What a busy first week back at school following the half-term break, I cannot believe how much we have crammed into the week.
In maths the children have been working on doubles and near doubles with Miss Fisher. Miss Fisher has told me that the children have been working really hard on this and despite struggling at the begin of the week, they have persevered and have made great progress.
In English the children have begun a Non-Chronological report unit with myself, based upon the United Kingdom. The children have explored key features of an NCR, how to group related information and the importance of using capital letters, full stops and exclamation marks correctly.
RWI Home learning:
Practice your story green words and red words from your home reading book on a piece of paper at home. These can be found on the How to help your child read this book page.
Challenge: Can you use the words in sentences?
As stated above the children have worked really hard this week to expand their knowledge of doubles. However, Miss Fisher believes that the children would benefit from having a practice at home. Therefore, I have found a really fun game that the children can play on the hit the button website:
On the home screen select the Doubles link.
You will be met with the following options. Please choose a suitable level of challenge. If unsure start with the doubles to 10 and then work from there.
As stated above the children are creating NCR about the United Kingdom in their English lessons. To support their learning I would like the children to create a poster about either London, Edinburgh, Belfast or Cardiff.
Have a great weekend!
