Term 1 Week 3

What a fabulous week we have had this week! :) Take a little peek below to see what our incredible children in Ivy Class have been up to!

In literacy, we have been focusing on our handwriting and letter formation. We are trying super super hard to keep our letter size from getting too big and I am really impressed with how many of us are applying this to our other lessons. We have also focused on our sentence structure, making sure our sentences start with a capital letter, have full stops and finger spaces. We have linked this to our focus text 'The Pirate Cruncher' and have been writing descriptions of our main character Captain Purplebeard. 

In Maths, we have been just as busy. We have spent a long time this week going over our number bonds to 10 and some of us to 20 which is amazing! We have also been looking at place value and have been looking at all the different ways we can make numbers up to 20. I have been so impressed with their learning so a huge well done! 

In the afternoons we have been dancers, scientists, explorers and much much more! We have started our R.E. topic on Christianity this term and have been looking at the creation story. Ivy Class retold the creation story through role play and movement - excellent performances! We have conducted scientific observations to help us identify what materials are waterproof and we made ships out of a range of materials ... Captian Baaaa was not happy when some of his ships turned out not to be waterproof - was quite funny though! We have also completed geography this week where we looked at the 4 countries that make up the UK and the different flags that go alongside each country. 

Remember, home learning is uploaded to Teams every Friday and is due the following Thursday. You have a literacy, maths and reading task each week. If you are still having difficulty accessing your child's Teams account, please let me know as soon as possible. 

Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!
