It’s been another jam-packed and fun-filled week in Maple Class. We started Monday by making beautiful stained glass poppies ready for Wednesday’s Remembrance Service. Thank you to Year 6 for leading our virtual service.
In maths we began learning about 3D shapes and used Polydron to make cubes, cuboids, prisms and pyramids. We spent the rest of the week ordering numbers and using our understanding of place value to solve 100 square puzzles.
We’ve also been working very hard in English writing some amazing exclamation sentences and learning about alliteration. We’re using a book called Stardust and will be writing our own narrative related to this book over the next few weeks. We’re continuing with phonics and have been recapping the very tricky split digraph u-e and ew graphemes.
Another week means another Reader of the Week.
Mrs Johanson choose two children to join Mrs Brewis’s “Always Club” for those who are always following the golden rules.
This week in English we have started a unit on poetry and we are linking this to our topic on weather. We worked together to perform some weather poems and today we took a closer look at the rain and studied the April Rain Song by Langston Hughes.
We went outside and carefully looked at the rain thinking about what it feels like and sounds like and all the different places it goes.
In topic we have recapped the seasons and have observed and recorded the weather.
We’re looking forward to next week especially because Monday reveals our new Reader of the Week. Congratulations to Ella who was this week’s reader 👍.
Last week was another busy one. In phonics we recapped the split digraphs and spent lots of time reading words that contain these.
Our topic this term is the Weather and we recorded the type of weather for each morning and afternoon. We will continue to do this and observe the weather changes over time and how the weather links with the different seasons.
It’s been another busy week in Maple Class with lots of exciting learning taking place. In maths we have been learning about place value and partitioning 2-digit numbers which we are very confident with now.
Phonics has been happening daily and this week we’ve been recapping Phase 4 where we segment and blend longer words. Mrs Johanson caught us out with some really tricky words but then we got much better at blending.
In English and reading we have been concentrating on animals, in particular endangered animals and we will be writing about these next week.
Thursday was R.E. Day where each class learnt about an inspirational person and how their faith helped them. We started off by reading the book Nelson Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom on Wednesday and produced some fact files about his life. Please do look at the website for our videos.
