Update for Week beginning : 19.6.17

English and Maths information:

In English this week we have been devising and labelling healthy lunchboxes. The children have been really good at remembering what their next steps are and using these in their writing to challenge themselves.

We continue to work on key words so please focus on these at home when reading or at other times. The children should know I, the, and, can, is, in, it, he, she, had, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, all, are, her, now, down, back, come, some, them, then, they. The children should now also be able to spell the, to, I, no, go, he, be, we, and, she, me, down, said, like.

In Maths this week we have been revisiting our learning with halves and sharing. The children continue to learn double and halves not only practically but being able to recall them from memory to 10.

Other curriculum news:

We had a fantastic project outcome with the pre-school children yesterday. The children were so grown up and kind to the children. They explained all the activities and even welcomed Mr Payne to the farm. He enjoyed milking the cow, watch out for the pictures and website post later!!!
