Update for Week beginning : 15.5.17

English and Maths information:

In English this week we have been writing our very own pirate stories and have worked incredibly hard on this. The children showed some really imaginative story language and that is very much thanks to you as parents for encouraging their love of books.

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. The children should now also be able to spell the, to, I, no, go, he, be, we, and, she.

In Maths this week we have been learning how to share and have worked hard to be independent problem solvers!

Other curriculum news:

This week we made our own pirate jewellery and added this to the beautiful treasure chests that the children had made for their home learning. The chests were all stunning, thank you so much for supporting your children in this. They had a lovely time showing them to Pirate Pete, who was also incredibly impressed!

General Information:

Each week you are sent the observations from the 2Simple programme that we use. I believe it comes from 2Engage Parents. A number of parents have been able to send us observations back and we would continue to encourage this. We would love to see what the children get up to at the weekend!

Thank you to all those parents that attended our pirate project outcome on Thursday. We now look forward to our next project and our visit to the farm on Thursday!

Thank you for your ongoing support
