Happy New Year everyone! Our first week of 2019 has been very busy! In Maths we have been focusing on column subtraction with regrouping. We have also been working on our 2,5 and 10 times tables and we have been learning to tell the time - o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.
In English we have continued with our Phonics sessions. My group have recapped on word classes - nouns, verbs and adjectives. We have learnt what an adverb is and then focused on changing adjectives to adverbs using the -ly suffix. We have also continued with our Guided Reading sessions.
We have started our new topic 'Wacky Races' and we have been thinking about what we know about different vehicles as well as what we would like to find out about vehicles over the coming weeks.
In RE we have read a passage from the Gospel of Luke and we have thought about what gifts God gave to us. We have looked at pitch and pulse in Music using the song 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' to help us.
Finally, in PE we have been very lucky to have Premier Sports in to teach us about Lacrosse. We very much enjoyed our session with them!
All in all a very busy first week but we are ready and raring to go this term! Please keep reading at home with your child and focusing on getting Fab 5. It really does help with your child's progress. Thank you for your continued support!
