Week beginning 16th September 2019
In English this week, we have continued to look at the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have used our knowledge of this story and changed it to make it relevant to our current topic of castles. We have changed the characters and thought about what might happen, following the traditional sequence.
In Maths this week, we have been looking at place value. We have been thinking about how many tens and ones are in each number and how these can be partitioned differently to make the same amount.
This week in topic lessons, we have been thinking about the different jobs that may have been seen inside a castle. We have identified the people who might have lived there and thought about their lifestyles compared to our own.
Certificates and Awards:
English Award: Jacob for trying hard to write in full sentences this week.
Maths Award: Keelin for working well with number bonds this week!
Head Teacher Award: Darcy for always trying her best!
Golden Table Awards: Thomas and Logan
Please remember that we will be visiting the farm on Tuesday therefore children will need to wear suitable clothing and footwear.
Week beginning 9th September 2019
In English this week, we have been reading the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have tried to use our knowledge of this familiar story and add detail to it. We have looked at the characters and thought about which adjectives we could use to describe them.
In Maths this week, we have started to look at counting. We started the week with recalling our numbers to 100. We then thought about counting up in 1s, 2s and 5s. We used our fingers to help us as we locked one number in our brains and counted on.
This week in topic lessons, we have started to think about our new topic of ‘Once upon a castle’. Within these sessions, we have looked at the history of castles and how they have changed over time. We have also identified castles across the United Kingdom and thought about how they have been built.
Certificates and Awards:
English Award: Rosie writing some brilliant descriptive sentences this week.
Maths Award: Paige. B for working hard on her counting skills this week.
Head Teacher Award: Cassie for always trying her best and contributing to class discussions.
Golden Table Awards: Kai and Oliver. F
