This week has been full of lovely learning.
In maths we’ve been looking at doubles up to 10 and 20, e.g. 1+1=2, 5+5=10, 7+7=14 etc. Once again, this is something you can do at home together with blocks and cubes, taking time to write down the corresponding number sentence. I have put two maths activities on J2e this week, I hope the children enjoy them.
During English lessons we’ve had a go at writing sentences about the leaves we have collected using adjectives (describing words) and the conjunction ‘and’. If you could write sentences at home together describing things around the home or garden that would be very helpful, e.g. The bear is brown and soft. The leaf is red and crunchy.
We have continued our science investigation, measured our hands in cm and are creating a table of results to help us show our findings in a pictogram.
The spelling tests went well today, it is lovely to see the children getting good results as a result of their hard work at home. Some children may need a little extra time at home, please provide them with it, to ensure they do well. It means a lot to them when they get things right. I have given 5 new spellings this week (ship, fish, shop, shut, cash), which can be found on J2e. Once again, it would be a great idea if you can make sentences at home using the spellings each week e.g. The shop was shut. As you write sentences together remember to focus on a capital letter at the start on a sentence, finger spaces in between words and a full stop at the end of the sentence. If your child is reversing their letters remind them to have another look and model how to write the letter correctly.
If you’re unable to access Hwb using the logins please don’t hesitate to ask for help. It is important that the children can access the books on bug club and the maths games on J2e.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
Very best wishes
