Weekly Round-up 

A shorter week and another busy week which culminated in our support of the NSPCC Number Day. Thank you very much for your support, the NSPCC does an invaluable job and hopefully the children have a better idea of their role in helping to keep children safe. 

In Maths, the children have been looking at making equal groups through sharing – the beginnings of division. This will lead nicely to our work with fractions next week.

As part of our English work, the children have looked in more detail at using exclamation marks in their writing. We have now looked at one word exclamations and writing exclamation sentences starting with ‘what’ and ‘how’. They used all of this knowledge to write a recount of the story.

The children have been working on throwing with accuracy in PE over the recent weeks. This week we put all of our skills to use and took part in a throwing golf competition! In Geography, we looked at human and physical features at the seaside, where the children identified and sorted different features.

How are you getting on with Street Tag? On Thursday we were top of the leader board. Please help us to stay on top!

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.
