This week we are learning:
We have had a lovely week! The children were so well behaved on our school trip and were an absolute credit to the school. We hope you have fun looking through all the photo's!
This week we will be learning about poetry. We will be looking about woodland poems and learning some off by heart. We will also be justifying why we like certain poems. Then at the end of the week we will be writing our very own poems!
In Maths the children really enjoyed playing the number bond game, which you can play here: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button. What is your top score? We played ours as a gameshow- can you knock the champion off the top spot?!
We hope you found the phonics homework useful this week. We are currently looking at phase 5c phonics so exploring alternatives that each letter can make is the focus. Why not have a go and see how many flashcards you can recognise on this game: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/Flashcards.html
Half Term Homework
"Our children are disconnecting with nature. By the time they are 7 years old, they can identify 200 logos ...... but they cannot identify trees growing in their gardens."
Thank you so much for the fantastic half term homework on trees. I was really impressed with the quality of the tree pictures especially the observational drawings of leaves. I will be adding some of the highlights to the class page. I hope that the activity has enabled you and your children to get out and about in the woods and learning more about trees. There will be other activities for homework and as part of Forest School and science that the children will be doing during the year.
