Star of the Week
This weeks 'star of the week' is Flynn.
You have had a brilliant week Flynn. You have been focused and ready to learn. You have contributed well during our lessons particularly in English. We loved your ideas about the questions we could ask to find out more about the gorilla on my trampoline! We are so impressed with the improvement in your handwriting - you have worked really hard with this. keep it up! Well done Flynn.
Here are next weeks spellings. We will do the spelling quiz next Friday.
Your child has been told how they got on in their spelling quiz today.
In Maths the children have been counting in groups of tens using pictures, bead strings and number lines.
The children have used stories which link to pictures and concrete manipulatives to explore making equal groups. They were able to recognise and explain how they know when they are equal or
not. The children could see equal groups that are arranged differently and were able to understand that the groups look different but can still be equal.
In art we have been talking about the idea of 'nature' and 'natural'. The children created observational drawings by examining a natural object closely first and then drawing it.
Congratulations to Isaac, whose bear one the competition! Very well done too the the runner up, Ava.
We enjoyed making boats today out of tin foil and seeing how many paperclips they could hold before they sank. Most of them didn't sink! Next week we will be making boats out of sticks. Why not collect some small sticks and bring them in?
The children had their first computing lesson. They learned to use the mouse, left click, turn the computer on and off and shut down a programme. They also learned that lots of electric devices have computers in them and that. They enjoyed playing a game using the up/down arrows. They were VERY excited.
