Miss Davies: February 2016
It has been a lovely first week back after the half term break. I hope you all had a restful week.
In Base 2 we have finished our art work on George's Marvellous Medicine and created a wonderful display for our learning area. The children worked in teams to draw and collage an illustration by Quentin Blake from the story. Well done!
We have focused on punctuation this week, specifically using exclamation marks and question marks. Some children have been learning about apostrophes for possession. Our writing in Base 2 is really improving and the children are working really hard to write more and use better vocabulary. With a focus on re-telling stories last half term, we will be looking at letter writing as well as other types of writing over the next few weeks.
The children have started the topic of measurement (length) in maths. Thank you all for bringing in containers and packets from home which show different units of measure. These will come in very handy and make for great practical lessons! We have focused on the language of centimetres, metres, greater than and less than this week. Tne children will begin next week doing some work with rulers and measuring length.
I wish you all a Happy Weekend!
