Our Terrific Week 2!

Incredible Ivies!

Incredible Ivies!

Hello everyone! WOW! We have had some outstanding learning this week! :) 

What a busy week it has been; we have begun to use our books this week, recording our amazing learning and showing off our presentation skills and really settling into and embracing school life. We have been mathematical superstars this week; learning our numbers, representing the value of numbers in different ways and even counting to 100! It has been a great experience and we can now confidently represent numbers in lots of different ways! We are also becoming pros at our number bonds which is amazing. 

In literacy, we have been practicing our sounds and our sentence structure – which we have worked so hard on. We have been linking this to our new topic of the Victorians and have spent the week looking at how our lives today are very different to some children in the Victorian times. Did you know many children did not go to school and went to work instead?! We were amazed! We wouldn’t want to live in the Victorian era…

In RE, we’ve been exploring kindness and what this means. I am amazed at how much kindness Ivy Class has demonstrated over the past 2 weeks! Well done Ivys! J

Next week, we are continuing to look at our sentences, focusing on punctuation, in literacy and number bonds and place value in maths. To help support you at home, please find some additional learning below that you can be doing at home.

  1. This week we have sent our first piece of home learning home. This is due back by Thursday (24.09.20) to allow us time to look over the learning before the next piece is sent out. If you need any help with your child's home learning, please send me an email. 
  2. Please remember to come to school on Monday in your P.E. kits. If you have long hair it should be tied up and earrings should be removed before you come to school. 
  3. Please try to read with your child every day to support their progress and sign their reading record so I can see what you have been up to at home.
