Good Afternoon Class 1,
Wow! What another busy first week in Class 1. The children have learnt more about the capitals cities and countries of the United Kingdom, man-made and natural materials in Science, created questions to ask the Wright Brothers in History and on Thursday saw us celebrate World Book Day, please keep your eyes pealed on the blog as Miss Fisher is going to post some pictures this week.
In maths the children have been working on addition and Subtraction with Miss Fisher. Once again Miss Fisher has told me that the children have been working really hard on this and have made great progress. She also told me that the children were really good at counting back and finding the difference.
In English the children have continued with their learning linked to Non-chronological reports. The children spent time investigating using question marks and ‘and’ to join two clauses or related pieces of information together. Next week the children are going to be spending their lessons researching the capital cities of the UK further and then writing their reports.
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?
To cement the children’s understanding in relation to subtraction; once again Miss Fisher has come across a really exciting game that the children can play to cement their knowledge:
The children can choose their own level of challenge, but Miss Fisher recommends Level 2, however some children may enjoy the challenge of level 3 or 4.
As stated above the children have worked on using questions this week in English and History. Therefore, Miss Fisher would like the children to create their very own list of all the questions that they have asked at home over the weekend which includes the correct punctuation and use of finger spaces.
Have a great weekend!
Mr M and Miss F
