Miss Phillips: April 2018
What a fantastic and sunny first week back we have had! The children have come back well rested a ready to learn. Good attendance for the first week back reaching over 97%, let's aim for 100% next week.
In Literacy this week, we have worked very hard to produce two pieces of writing. We retold the story of Little Red Riding Hood independently and we have written a set of instructions about how to grow a sunflower. Next week we will be starting a new book which we will be getting our writing from before we begin our new topic for summer term. We will be doing some descriptive writing and explanation writing.
In Maths we have all worked extremely hard on learning to tell the time to O clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. I was very impressed with how well the children worked and tried their very best. Time is a challenging concept to understand, practising at home will support the children greatly. Next week, we will be working on measurement and reading scales.
In Science, we explored our outdoor area in the sunshine to find things that were living, dead or never alive. This allowed the children to utilise their knowledge of materials to work out which category the object would fit into. Next week, we will be planting our sunflowers out in larger pots and we will be looking at habitats.
The children are all working very hard within school, it is lovely to see their enthusiasm throughout everything that we are doing. Keep up the hard work Base 2! Don't forget to keep reading, practising spellings and practising times tables.
