Class 1 – 9/3/2020

This week in Class One we are going to be continuing reading and discussing the book Hansel and Gretel. We are going to be reading a different version and talking about the changes the author has made. This will lead to us changing parts of the story to make it our own.

In Phonics the Reception Children will be looking at their final phase 3 sound ‘ure’ this week. We are then going to have a tricky word week focusing on reading and writing them. Year 1 children are going to be looking at the alternative ie sounds this week. The Year 2 children have been working on their suffixes the last few weeks and this week we will look at the suffix -ness. The Year 2 children will also be completing English SATs questions this week and going through them as a group.

In Maths we are going to be starting our new topic of measure. The children will be using non-standard units of measure and standard units of measure. The Year 2 children will be looking at both metres and centimetres. The Reception children are also going to be starting the new maths of measure.  They will be using the vocabulary longer, longest, taller, tallest, smaller, smallest and comparing and ordering the size of different objects. The children will then be measuring items using non-standard units of measure, for examples, cubes.

It is also Science Week this week. We are going to be looking at colour mixing, freezing and melting and we will also be doing some simple baking this week.

Gracie  was Class One’s star of the week last week. She got this certificate for showing resilience and perseverance in her writing and also during the outdoor day we took part in on Friday. Well done Gracie.
