Our PE lessons will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. The children are to come to school ready in their PE kits and they will return home in them. Please remember to still send your child with their book bags on PE days. Thank you.
The children have been very busy over the last couple of weeks, they have worked so hard. They have done some fantastic maths work. We have been using numicon and dienes to work out how many tens and ones a number has. They have also been working out which number is greater than, less than or equal too another number.
We have been reminding ourselves of the number bonds to 10. Please practise this with your child at home, can they teach you the number bond song we have learnt in class. There are also some YouTube videos that can help them with their number bonds.
In English they have been learning the story of The Rainbow Fish. They have all joined in and learnt the actions to go with the story map. They have also written about a Rainbow Leopard. Amazing work this week, we are very proud of you all.
We have sent some year one or/and year two common exception words home for your child to read. Please practise reading these words daily. Please hear your child read at least four times a week. Thank you for your continued support.
The children have all settled back in extremely well. They have told us all about the different things they have been up to since they were last in school. It has been great to hear about all their adventures.
We have looked at a book called ‘The Colour Monster’. They enjoyed listening to the story and discussing the different moods each colour represented in the book. The children have done some beautiful drawings and colourings about the book. We even had a little game to test our memories. They have also started to make a coloured pompom this afternoon. This is quite a tricky task but the children carried on and never gave up.
Well done to all of Purple Class for coming back to school with big big smiles.
