Our Week In Bronze Class

Good Evening Parents & Carers

We have been doing lots of learning in Bronze class this week!

In Maths we have been looking at one more up to ten, using different resources. Some children have been able to do this with numbers up to 20! We have also looked at addition this week. The children have been able to recognise that when we see the plus sign, the number is getting bigger. They have been learning how to add numbers together and show this using the resources provided.

Have a listen to the following song over the weekend to help the children with their learning:

In Phonics this week we have been looking the following tricky words:

  • You
  • Are
  • I
  • The
  • To
  • Into
  • Go
  • No

The children have verbally put each tricky word in a sentence. We have practised writing our tricky words and reading some sentences that contain the tricky words. Myself and the staff in Bronze class have been reminding the children that these words are tricky because we cannot sound them, they have to be learnt by sight. It would be really helpful if you could go over the tricky words above with your child this weekend so that they continue to consolidate their learning. We have played tricky word ‘tic-tac- toe’ in class this week, perhaps your child could play this with you at home too!

Have a listen to the tricky words song when helping your child learn their tricky words:

In Literacy this week we have continued to learn about different types of boats. We have learnt about rowing boats, rescue boats and cruise ships and all about the different crew members. Ask your child what they can tell you about each of the different boats.

The children have been very creative this week and have enjoyed making their own boats using recycling.

The children have also worked to strengthen their finger muscles by using playdough. They have been very creative and used it to create transport as well as faces and gingerbread men!

Reading

Just a reminder that Collins books are allocated every Thursday for your child. Please do read with your child as much as you can! I have sent home texts last week and this week with sounds and tricky words that the children need to learn. Please do learn them over the weekend as this will help them to progress with their reading.

Have a lovely weekend!

Gold Class Learning This Week

Dear parents/Carers,

What a great week the children have had with continuing with this terms topic ‘Transport’. The children have really shown an interest in learning about different types of boats, such as a canal boat, a rowing boat, a cruise ship and a ferry boat.

Why not ask your child: ‘Which boat is your favourite boat and why?

In Maths

This week the children have been recapping on one more than a number and adding two numbers together to find the total.

Why not play start off playing a simple game ‘Simon Says’ and have your child use their fingers to show you the answer (using numbers within 10). For example: ‘Simon says show me the number 4, 6, 10 etc. Then say a number and have your child give you the answer using a full sentence: “one more than__ is__”.

Say two numbers and have them add them together using any resources you may have at home to support them. Say ‘add’ or ‘plus’ which means the same thing and encourage them to use a full sentence, for example: ‘4 plus 3 equals 7’, or ’12 add 4 equals’.

In Phonics

The children have been writing tricky words and putting them into a sentence.

Ask your child: What is a tricky word?

Here’s a video to help support your child to become confident with some of the tricky words that they need to know. Enjoy!

It’s PE

The children had a challenging time throwing the bean bag into the hoop but enjoyed the task set before them.

Free Flow and Outdoor Play

The children always have fun with their free flow time and outdoor play.

Have a wonderful weekend and keep safe!

Our Week In Bronze Class

Hello Parents & Carers!

The children have completed their second week back at school at it has been brilliant! I am so happy to be back at school and I’m can tell that the children are all glad to be back at school too by seeing all their smiley faces each day.

This term we have been learning all about transport. This week in Literacy we have been learning all about boats! We have looked at the story ‘Brilliant Boats’ by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker (see the link below). We have also learnt all about sail boats, rescue boats and submarines! Ask your child if they can tell you a little bit about each of them.

In Phonics we have been looking at the sounds ‘ai’, ‘ng’ and ‘ee’. We have also looked at the tricky words ‘was’ and ‘be’. The children did some excellent work during Phonics this week:

All the children have been really engaged during their choosing time

Today we had lots of fun making playdough! The children had their own individual piece and made the propeller for a helicopter, a face, spots for a ladybird and even a spider web! I think we will definitely have to make some again next week as it was so much fun!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
