Miss Davies: May 2016
It has been a delightfully sunny week at school and it has been great to watch the children enjoying the sunshine and playing together outside!A short but busy week, time flies when you are having fun!
In Literacy this week the children have been finishing and editing their book reviews, making sure to check for punctuation, adjectives as well as trying to extend sentences using words: and, if, so, but or because. We have also been learning lots of interesting facts about crocodiles linked with the children's homework task from last week. Did you know that crocodiles produce tears when they are chewing their food? The children have created some wonderful crocodile fact sheets with impressive description and fabulous knowledge! We are going to continue our crocodile work this week linking with some stories I have found: The Selfish Crocodile and Solomon the Crocodile. Handwriting sessions this week have been focusing on forming tall letters t and b. The children have also been encouraged to keep forming capital letters as bigger letters than the lower case letters.
In Maths we have been busy with times tables and multiplication! The children have used lots of practical activities to discover that multiplication is repeated addition. We have been working hard to understand the meaning behind the mathematical symbol x.
We filled the classroom with monsters this week in ICT learning about algorithms (a set of rules or instructions). The children followed an algorithm to create drawings of a monster. This work will be continued in the week ahead.
Base 2 have a new writing display to showcase super and most improved pieces of writing. We used art this week to create our own fish for the board as our moto is just keep writing, writing, writing instead of just keep swimming, swimming, swimming from the popular Pixar film Finding Nemo.
More news next week! Enjoy the sunshine!
