Hello Everyone! :)
We have certainly worked hard this week! In such a short time, we have shown so much progress; we have tried super hard to make sure our presentation in our books is much neater. Each day it is getting better and better!
In Literacy, we have worked on using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We are determined to make sure we have this down by the end of term 1! We have also been busy role playing the life of a Victorian chimney sweep as well as sequencing and writing about their life - we have found out so much about the time period.
In Maths, we have been busy counting in twos, fives and tens AS WELL AS counting BACKWARDS from 20. We found it tricky but after sheer determination, we got there! :) I am so proud of Ivy Class for their mathematical accomplishments this week!
In topic, we focused on comparing the life of a Victorian child to a child nowadays - we have decided we are very lucky to be in the present opposed to the past! In R.E, we were thinking about how being kind is sometimes hard; as a class, we decided that we can all show kindness to each other to make the world a better place :) In PE, we did some hardcore hockey dribbling, jumping, skipping and throw-clap-catching (which we were very good at!) Last, but not least, SCIENCE! We all took part in an experiment to see whether materials were waterproof or absorbent! Once again, I am incredibly proud of how sensible Ivy Class were when conducting this experiment! WELL DONE IVY CLASS! :)
Please encourage your children to bring in their reading records into class to be changed. They should be put in the tray for changing first thing in the morning (they always get 3 reminders for reading records and home learning books). If the reading records are not in the tray, unfortunately we cannot change them. Our class focus for next week will be responsibility so this would be a fantastic time to support and encourage your child to remember to hand in their home learning and reading records.
As part of our topic on the Victorians, we are hosting a Dress as a Victorian day, please dress the children in Victorian clothing. This will take place on the last day of term, Friday 23rd October. We will be running the school day like a Victorian school and will have great fun learning through experiencing how it was for children over 200 years ago.
Have a wonderful weekend all :)
