Have lots of fun in the snow!
Please remember to do your homework, reading and high frequency words.
Have a think about the planet which your puppet has come from and draw a picture of it ready for when we get back into school.
During Term 2 Class R have been learning all about celebrations around the world and at home.
In Forest School we made 'Celebration Mud Cakes'! Please see the photo below.
We have really improved our ball skills and have been practising throwing and catching.
We have been learning lots of new sounds and are using them well to sound out words which is assisting our reading greatly.
In Maths we are learning about 'more than' and 'less than' by comparing sets of objects e.g. compare bears and counters.
We have also done some simple addition using the + sign.
Our Canterbury Cathedral visit was wonderful and we successfully built arches, wrote with quills and tried our hand at stone masonry. In the picture below you can see we were looking at the impressive vaulted ceiling.
‘High Frequency’ Words
All children in Classes R, 1 and 2 bring home a pack of ‘High Frequency’ words every week on a Friday. Some of these words are very difficult to sound out the normal way so they need to be memorised. It is very important for the children to learn these words as they will come up consistently in reading books. As the children move to Class 1 and 2, the words form the basis of the childrens’ writing.
We would like the children to spend just 5 minutes per day learning the words – you may like to devise a game with the words or write the words on paper to stick around the house!
Please keep the words in your child’s school bag so they can be used in school on a daily basis.
If you have any questions regarding ‘High Frequency’ words (HFW) please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Morrison, the Key Stage 1 Manager.
