'Peter pan' is our new topic for this term. We will also be focusing on oceans, boats and everything to do with the sea.
Miss Schonert and Miss Davies
The reading challenge has commenced again, children need to read four times a week for ten weeks to receive their reading badge at the end of term, please continue to record this in their partnership books.
15th June- Dads in school am
15th June - Praise in the park pm
Over the next two weeks we will be reading the story of 'Peter Pan'. We will be looking at using adjectives to describe familiar settings in the story in order to make our writing more interesting. We will continue to ensure that our sentences include punctuation.
This weeks numeracy focus will be based on time.
Our block topic for the next few weeks is science. We will be conducting an experiment based on materials in order to design, create and evaluate our own boats.
To clarify, please allow your children to go onto the doodle maths on a regular basis, little and often is the aim. The are rewarded for going on the app on consecutive days. The aim behind the app is to build maths skills and the more often they complete work, and the more accurate they are, the harder the work becomes.
You can also download the Doodle Maths Timestables app using the same username and password.
I have added a couple of activities to support multiplication and division, which we are focusing on in class.
