Welcome back

Welcome back to the summer term, we hope you all had a lovely Easter break.

At the top of the year one page you will now find the outline plan for for this half terms learning.

This week in Maths we have been halving. We started to halve shapes and objects and then moved on to halving numbers. We used the method of Dot- Chop- Count to help with our halving, ask your child to explain the method to you. Next week we shall be moving onto halving and quartering.

In Literacy we have been looking at non-fiction books on materials. We have been using the books to help us create our own booklets all about glass, wood, metal and plastic. We have also started to look at plants and how they grow and next week we shall be planting sunflower seeds and writing a sunflower diary and sunflower facts.

If you get the chance, do pop into the classroom to see the wonderful pastel drawings the children have done of Daffodils.

Goldilocks, doubling and boat making

This week we have been doubling in maths, after the holidays we shall be moving onto doubling and halving.

In Literacy we have continued with Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children have retold the story and created story maps. Today they have had a go at writing the story.

In Science, we gave the children the challenge to make a boat. They were given different materials and worked together to test which material was the best.

Next week is our Design and Technology week. The children will be creating rooms using shoe boxes, their own bespoke wallpaper and junk modelling to create furniture to rival IKEA.

Three Little Pigs

We have had a fantastic week.

In Maths we have continued to look at the relationship between addition and subtraction. They have been using Bar models to create related number sentences and to complete empty box calculations. They have done really well and applied their understanding of addition and subtraction.

In Literacy we have started our unit on The Three Little Pigs. The children have amazed us by how quickly they have picked up the story and can confidently re-tell it with actions. On Wednesday they worked in groups to act out their own version of the story and performed it to the rest of the class. They have finished of this week by creating a story map for their own version of the story. They have changed the main characters and the materials that the houses are built from. There have been some fantastic choices, including rats, cats, unicorns and foxes with houses made from cheese, ice, sweets and sparkling rainbows.

Take a look at some of this week’s learning.

Thank you to all the parents that attended parents evening this week it was lovely to talk to you about your child’s learning and we look forward to meeting some of your next week.

Have a lovely weekend
