literacy

This week the children will be learning how to write instructions. They will learn about the main features of instructions including time connectives and imperative (bossy) verbs. To help the children to achieve this they will complete many different practical activities using Pie Corbet actions to help them remember. Ask your child to show you the actions for the following time connective;

First, Next, Then, After that & Finally


maths

This week the children will be revising and consolidating everything they have learnt this term. Take the time at home to let your child teach you what a whole part model is and how to use it, what a ten frame is and how to use it, explain that a 2 digit number is made of tens and ones and that the tens is the first digit and the ones the second digit.

Below are some useful websites and videos to support your child at home;

literacy

This week we will continue using the story of Handa’s Surprise as a basis for our learning. We will discuss what is needed to write a sentence and practise writing our own, with a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. We will then use our imagination to change the story to create our own characters and events, and practise verbally re-telling and writing our own new and improved version!


maths

This week we will be continuing our exploration of numbers 10-20, focusing on tens and ones. We will use practical apparatus to help us with this, and then move on to comparing numbers using a variety of strategies. We will practise using the language of more than, less than and equal to, and finish the week by ordering groups of objects in a variety of ways.

You can help your child at home by using more than, less than and equal to in your everyday conversations, e.g. “Who has got more pencils? Who has got the least food on their plate?”

Why not use this website to practise your mental maths skills;

topic

This week we will continue our cultural exploration around the world by learning all about Chinese New Year! We will first learn about how and why people celebrate, and discuss the different animals that are part of the Chinese calendar.

We will then use this knowledge as a basis for investigating the different types of animals – mammals, fish, amphibians, birds and reptiles. At the end of the week, we will become animal detectives, and use I-pads to research the physical features, habits and food source of different animals.

literacy

In Literacy this week, we will continue using Handa’s Surprise as a basis for our work, placing events from the story into a story journey. We will then start to practise our acting skills by engaging in some role play, showing key events from the story in a group. We will then end the week by practising re-telling the story in our own words and  then construct sentences.


maths

In Maths this week we are building on our existing knowledge of counting forwards and backwards, by exploring the numbers 11-20. We will look at the ways numbers can be written in numerals and words and practise spelling them correctly. We will then move onto representing numbers with both objects and pictures, and do lots of practical activities with our friends to help us with this. We will end the week by investigating how numbers are made up of tens and ones.

This week in Topic we are continuing our cultural exploration by focusing on the celebration of Eid. We will use I-pads to investigate how and why Eid is celebrated and complete our very own fact-file with interesting information.

If any parents would like to come in and share stories or photographs of Eid celebrations, please contact your class teacher to register your interest.

literacy

In Literacy this week we are going to begin learning about stories from other cultures, by exploring the story “Handa’s Surprise”. We will discuss differences and similarities between this setting and that of other stories, and continue the week by investigating the different animals and fruits that are in the story. We will also revisit our sequencing work, by putting the story in order, and practise using adjectives to describe all of the fruit.


maths

In Maths this week we are investigating shapes! We will begin by looking at the 2D shapes that we know, before learning about other 2D shapes. We will practise sorting them according to whether their sides are straight or curved, and then move on to learning about 3D shapes. We will finish the week by going on a 3D shape hunt around the school!

To help your child, see what shapes they can find around your home!

literacy

In Literacy we will start to explore the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. We will begin by learning about the features of non-fiction books, e.g. contents page, glossary, photographs, captions and labels, and move on to investigate the purpose of different non-fiction texts.

You can help your child at home by showing them a non-fiction book such as a travel guide, newspaper article or information leaflet. Can they identify how it is different to one of their reading books?


maths

In Maths we will begin to explore and use vocabulary such as equal to, greater than, more than and less than. We will be comparing groups of objects to help us with this, as well as learning how to say and write comparison sentences, e.g “Five is greater than three.”

We will also be consolidating our previous learning, by revisiting addition and subtraction, and practising the various strategies we have learnt to help us with different number problems.

Why not practise with your child at home, by adding and subtracting small groups of objects. Can your child identify which is more than?


topic

We will begin our new topic of Celebrations this week, with a fantastic exploration into the Diwali celebration! We will start by hearing the story of Diwali, and then learn about all of the different ways that people celebrate around the world.

On Wednesday 7th November, please send your child into school wearing light / bright colours, to mark the beginning of our new learning on celebrations.


reminders

Please remember to bring a water bottle and hat to school everyday.
