Good Afternoon Parents & Carers,
We have had a done lots of learning in Bronze class this week. I have to say a huge well done to all the children as we have once again had the highest attendance in KS1 for the second week in a row! This week we have been continuing with our ‘under the sea’ project and our sea creatures are really beginning to take shape!
In Maths this week we have continued to look at grouping. We have also began to look at sharing. We have emphasised the importance of sharing things equally and accurately. Please practise this at home, emphasising “one for me, one for you”. We have also encouraged the children to use full sentences for example “6 shared between 2 is 3 each”. The children have completed sharing activities in Maths using a variety of resources this week and have been working together with their partner to complete the tasks.
In Phonics this week our tricky word word was ‘said’. The children have practise writing sentences containing the word ‘said’ and have verbally come up with their own sentences. Of course we have listened to the tricky word song in class too to help the children remember it. It is a new tricky word song as we have covered all previous tricky words. Please listen to the song with your child as often as possible and sing along too!
We have also recapped the ‘ar’, ‘ow’ and ‘oi’ diagraphs this week. The children have been writing some beautiful sentences!
In Literacy this week the children have been doing their own storyboards of the story ‘Sharing A Shell’ by Julia Donaldson. I have been very impressed with their work! It is so impressive that I will be putting it up on display in Bronze class!
We have began to look at the story ‘Dougal’s Deep Sea Diary’ by Simon Bartram and we will continue to focus on this story next week. Please do listen to the story with your child at home if you have a moment this weekend.
The children have continued to complete activities of their choice during their choosing time. Here are a few things that they have been up to:
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
