Weekly Round-Up

Welcome back! What a great start to the week, the sun was shining which added to that ‘beach’ feel. We had a great day being creative and playing outdoor games. We also got very crafty and made beach huts and paper plate seagulls!

In Maths we have been counting in 10s, making equal groups and repeated addition as the start of some work on multiplication.

Our focus text in English for the next few weeks is ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage. We’ve been looking at the front cover and predicting what we think might happen in the story. The children have also thought of some fantastic adjectives to describe the nouns they could see!

Just a reminder, Street Tag will be back on May 1st. Until then we are checking daily with the children about how they travelled to school as part of our ‘Big Pedal’ data collection. Well done to everyone for taking part!

HANDWRITING

We will leave this information here each week for easy access. 

Please remember to reinforce the correct pencil grip at home; the correct letter and number formation. 

This video shows how the children are taught in Foundation using the Read Write Inc scheme but please note that we use a ‘curly’ k and the ‘f’ has a longer tail that carries on below the line.

The following video will reinforce the correct number formation for 0-9

Have a great weekend
