Demeter have had a hard-working week learning about many new things. In English we have been creating our own non-fiction book about Homes, the children have worked hard on including as many features as possible and thinking about their handwriting and use of capital letters and full stops. We can’t wait to show you how hard we have worked. The children are working really hard with their handwriting in the books we started in January – well done to you all.

Our Maths this week has been using a number line to add numbers as well as thinking about how repeated addition links to multiplication and how important it is that we can count accurately in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children have also been able to find missing numbers in an addition question.

In Science, the children worked collaboratively to find the best material to build a house out of for the Three Little Pigs. We then tried very hard to blow the houses down. There were some excellent predictions and conclusions in our work – well done to you all.

We are enjoying learning movements to a piece of music thinking about how we can keep in time as we move. We look forward to showing you this in our class assembly in March.

Phonics for this week: wh and ph. We are working hard to identify sounds we know within words – any support with this when reading would be beneficial.

MyMaths homework – Well done to EVERYONE for completing their homework last week we were all so pleased to see that everyone had done this by the deadline. Thank you. If the children want to do some more there are games to play on MyMaths or they can use Education City. We will be setting more challenging activities for future weeks, thank you for your feedback.

Show and tell for next week: Anything linked to our learning about homes this can be drawings, writing, making models, instructions, making a house out of a different material or finding out what houses relatives live in.

We would be very grateful if you could spend time with your child working on some mental maths. It will really benefit their learning in the classroom for the rest of the year and their future.

 

  • Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s for their times tables
