As you know, we are planning a trip to Millhouses Park on Monday 28 January to do some mapping and continue our geography topic. If you have not yet sent in your little brown envelope with your child’s choice of lolly marked on the front, please bring it in tomorrow.
There were a few letters and envelopes left on tables so if you have not yet had a letter, please let us know tomorrow.
We started our RE topic on Friday thinking about the special people in our lives and the question ‘What makes them special?’.
The video and activities on maths with parents remains the same as last week (telling the time to the hour and half past).
Spellings are: Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
We have been learning the order of the months of the year. Take a look at our paper chains of the months.
There is a new video on the maths with parents website. We’re starting to learn about time, and the video and activities are about telling the time to the hour and half hour. Have fun!
Spellings are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Welcome back! We hope you’ve all had a happy, relaxing Christmas break and that the children are ready for another term. Thank you so much for all the lovely gifts and good wishes.
We have made some changes to the reading timetable. Please make sure your child brings in their books and reading diary on their day; we will change their books on that day. Please make a comment about what your child has enjoyed reading during the week as we can follow this up in our guided reading sessions.
All children will now take part in a guided reading group at least once a fortnight. This may not be on the same day we change their home reading books. Of course, the children also read every day during Read Write Inc lessons.
The children love doing ‘show and tell’. Each child is welcome to bring in something from home to ‘show and tell’ on the same day they bring in their reading books. If the children do bring in a special toy for show and tell, this must be kept safe until they show it to the class. Please do not let your child bring in any toys from home at any other time.
Finally, a plea: can you please make sure that all clothing, particularly jumpers and ties, is clearly labelled?
Thank you — and Happy New Year!
As promised in the blog yesterday…. here are some of the exciting things we have been doing in class today.
