Eagles weekly update

Hello!

With the end of the month here, the Christmas countdown can finally begin! In topic this week we have continued our focus on WW2, with the lessons this week looking at the ‘War at home’ including rationing and the ‘Dig For Victory’ campaign. In Literacy we started our work in diary writing and also had two focussed SPAG lessons on areas the children aren’t particularly strong in. In maths we completed a week on place value including: rounding whole and decimal numbers, explaining the value of digits within a number, converting between writing using numbers and writing numbers in words and using negative numbers.

Reminders:

There will no PE on Monday next week. This is replaced with swimming on Tuesday.

Spellings test will happen on Monday with new spellings handed out the same day.

Homework this week has been set in purple books. The children will need to hand this back in by next Friday.

Enjoy your weekend,

Robins’ Monday

Today the Robins learned the ‘h’ sound and practised segmenting the sounds in words.  We practised our production this morning and then we began our week’s work on ‘Percy the Park keeper’ – the children all drew pictures about the story ‘One warm fox’ and then used our high frequency word cards and phoneme mats to try to write their own captions.  We were really pleased with them 🙂  We also began our work on subtraction and used the clever board to take away within 20.  To finish the day we played our shopping game which the children loved – they made money totals within 20p using coins on the clever board.

Please remember to send in your child’s costume; we have lots here but are missing one or two!

 

Thank you Ancient Egyptian Kestrels!

Thank you for all the effort put into your costumes for our Ancient Egyptian Day, you looked awesome! Hope you enjoyed all of the activities; making clay canopic jars, playing the Snake Game, dressing Ancient Egyptians, colouring the Pharaoh, and recreating the Great Sphinx out of biscuits. You worked together so nicely, making it a very successful day -one to remember!

Apologies for not getting your on-line homework set up until where can i buy lorazepam online Saturday afternoon, after clearing up from our busy day as Ancient Egyptians, I was frazzled & then family life took over, & it was the first chance I got. So, don’t worry too much about the Thursday deadline if Saturday morning was your homework time slot.

Take a look at our class page carousel as I have uploaded some photo’s from Ancient Egyptian Day.

Robins’ Monday

Today we began thinking about songs we know and started with ‘The wheels on the bus’; the children painted pictures of buses, wrote tickets using their phonic knowledge and made roads and railways outside.  We worked at counting and finding the corresponding numeral and used number fans which was fun 🙂

This afternoon we rehearsed our play – the children are getting really good at remembering when to come onto the stage now!

Changes to our PE sessions

Now that the Christmas play is getting closer, our PE slot on a Monday will be used for rehearsals. This means that the Swifts will only have PE on a Tuesday afternoon for the next 3 weeks. Please make sure that they have their PE kits in school all the time.

On another note, just a quick reminder to bring back the letters for the Christmas play, regarding tickets and the creche, so that we can do our best to get you all of the tickets that you ask for.

Robins’ Thursday

What a busy day in the Robins classroom today!  The children learned the ‘k’ sound in phonics and then all read and wrote some simple words using the sounds we’ve covered so far, we all worked on solving money problems today and some of us continued using pennies to pay for items.  The children practised writing their names, worked with the playdough, painted pictures and worked outside in the Robins’ garden before we had a rehearsal of our Christmas play.
