We have been keeping our calculation skills on the boil today with some outdoor maths. We used the garden wall, some chalk and a pile of stones! This helped us recap on doubles and all the ways to make 11.
On Mathletics we have been looking at time so we are recapping on telling the time to the half hour before moving onto quarter past and quarter to. To help with this we stopped regularly throughout the day to tell the time (10.30 snack time, 11.30 story time, 12.30 lunchtime, etc) so they had a reason to learn it.
We recommend reading a book from Oxford Owl daily at your child's level. I have messaged you all a link to this website on See-Saw. Your child's reading level should be in their reading record but if you are unsure which colour bookband they are on, feel free to message me.
For writing today, we wrote a letter to our grandparents to tell them about our weekend. However, if we were in school we would be linking our literacy and R.E. and learning about the Easter story. There are some good powerpoints on Twinkl you can download which is now free. The children could read the powerpoints and discuss them. Later in the week maybe they could have a go at writing the Easter story.
I have e-mailed you daily updates on See-saw as this is a more interactive way to communicate with you and I have loved seeing what your children have been up to. Keep sending me your photos on Seesaw as we hope to make a display of what we have all been up to in our home learning.
This morning we are doing 'Wake Up Shake Up' with 'Jumpstart Johnny'.
See the link below for some free workouts. The children love these and are used to doing these every morning before we start our learning. https://www.jumpstartjonny.co.uk/home
It has been a great start to the year and the children are growing in independence and becoming more confident in their maths and literacy skills. We are currently working on our third literacy unit where we are learning how to write instructions using the funny book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. We have also been working on developing our writing stamina with lots of sentence writing in our phonics sessions. We have spent the majority of this term's maths sessions developing our understanding of number. We have been ordering and comparing numbers and becoming more familiar with using and understanding number lines. This week we have just started our new unit on addition and subtraction by learning to understand part, part, whole diagrams. In our phonics work we have just completed the first part of phase 5 in which we have learnt 20 new graphemes and the sounds that match them as well as some new tricky words. In the next part of the phase we will be practising these new sounds and learning about the different ways one grapheme can be pronounced for example 'c' in cat or 'c' in centipede. More updates on our learning will be added to Seesaw along with photographs of work. Please update permissions on Arbor as soon as you can so that we know you are happy for us to post images of your child learning on Seesaw.
We had a wonderful time exploring our box of Victorian toys from the library. We learnt how to play skittles, hoopla, pick up sticks and marbles. The wooden toys were interesting and we enjoyed finding out how they worked. Many of us noticed that none of the old toys were made of plastic.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
