Next Week’s Learning (beginning 14th October)

Next week in our maths lessons we will be coming to the end of the unit on place value and beginning to use our knowledge to subtract within 10.

We will be engaging in lots of Art next week. We will be designing, sketching and then creating a textured collage of an imaginary planet for Beegu.

Please remember that we have our parent consultation meetings on Thursday so school is closed from 1pm. Don’t forget to sign up online for the meeting with your class teacher.

Please collect your children on time as many of them find it distressing if you are late.

This Week’s Learning (beginning 7th October)

This week in Maths the children have been learning to represent and use number bonds within 10. They have developed an understanding that each number within 10 is 5 and a bit more. They have found different way to represent the numbers and to write their discoveries as a number sentence.

In Topic we have focused mostly on Geography this week and the children have been learning about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. Ask them to tell you the capital city of Scotland! We turned the class room into a train and went on a journey there.

I am really pleased to see that so many of the children have PE kits. For those that do not yet have them the PE kit should consist of a plain white T shirt, a pair of blue or black shorts or jogging bottoms and a pair of trainers or plimsolls.

Next Week’s Learning (beginning 7th October)

Next week in maths the children will be finding different ways of making numbers 8 and 9 by partitioning and recombining them using a variety of resources , including counters and cubes. The children will be using the part-part-whole model to do this as well as a ten frame.

In Topic the children will evaluate their space ships and discuss any improvements to be made. In geography they will be continuing to learn about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and about the capital city of each of those countries.

This Week’s Learning (beginning 30.9.19)

This week in maths the children have been finding different ways of making numbers by partitioning and recombining them using a variety of resources , including counters and cubes. The children have become accurate at using the part-part-whole model to do this and we have introduced the bar model as well.

In Topic we have had two main focusses, geography and DT. In Geography the children are learning about the different countries that make up the United Kingdom. In DT they designed a model space ship, to get Beegu the alien back home. They then had great fun and used a variety of materials and junk modelling items to create a space ship with a friend.
