This week we are learning:
I hope you all had a lovely bonfire weekend! We are having a very busy week! Our trip to the Gurdwara is on Thursday, we will be leaving after register and coming back before lunch. Please can children come in correct school uniform, and ensure all children have a headscarf to cover their heads. Friday is non-school uniform day for children in need and we will also be showing our Diwali creations in assembly! We will now be doing football outside on Tuesdays so please ensure your children have warm outside p/e kit. Thank you very much for all the homework returned so far! Please note that Ms Turner-Cavaye will be teaching Friday this week instead of Wednesday.
In Mathematics we are learning how to halve. We will be learning what the ÷ sign means and how to write it. We will also be looking at odd and even numbers and starting to halve shapes as well as numbers. You may want to practice sharing things equally at home... "one for me, one for you".
In phonics we are carrying on Phase 4 and looking at writing cvcc words, we will learn that all you need to do is add on the initial letter to the cvc word. We will learn how to read and write: damp, tent, lend, sent, jump, bump, went, bend, mend
We will also be learning how to spell and write: said and so, he, she, me, and be, as well as starting to use words in sentences. We have started a phonics challenge, so feel free to help your children think of words with 'ch' and 'igh'!

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.
