Welcome to our class page! I look forward to working with the children to keep you up to date on what we have been doing in the classroom.
In our first week we have been preparing to write our own poems in English and have been working on generating great adjectives for our work. We have been reading poems out loud to practise developing a character and using the text to help us understand what a character is like. On Friday, we played a game to find prepositions in sentences that had been pinned up around the school.
In Maths we have been working on understanding place value, learning about thousands, partitioning numbers and learning how to recombine them. We have also done a times tables test so please keep practising them at home as a strong understanding and knowledge of times tables is essential in Maths.
We have also focused on the importance of reading and have started our class book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. All of the children should now have a book and a Reading Record and we are looking forward to all being Super Readers next week.
We have also made a colourful display that shows our hopes and dreams for this year which can have in our classroom.
I look forward to seeing you all next week.
The end of you first full week and we have packed on a great deal of learning this week.
In Maths, we have completed our unit on place value and have moved on to looking at rounding numbers and understanding number magnitude.
In English we have been continuing to work on poems and completed our first Big Write which was a diary entry.
In History we discussed what history actually is and why it is important. We are looking forward to learning about our first history topic: The Romans.
The first spellings have been sent home this week too and I look forward to seeing some of those words appearing in our writing next week.
