Well done on a fabulous week. We are slowly settling into rhythm now.
In English this week we have been writing the story of Augustus in our own words. We used our story maps to help us remember the story. We also looked at verbs and adverbs, creating interesting sentences using these.
In Maths this week have continued with our number bonds, taking it up to 100 in 10s. There is a number bond (10-20) chant below that the children have been learning. Why not ask you child to show you!! We look at addition and subtraction families. We discovered that addition is commutative (can be switched.... 4 + 6 = 10, 6 + 4 = 10), but subtraction you must always have the biggest number first.
e.g. 4 + 6 = 10
6 + 4 = 10
10 - 6 = 4
10 - 4 = 6
The Science focus is ANIMALS AND THEIR YOUNG. This week the children discussed which animals are born or hatched from an egg. We discovered that Mrs R-J's favourite creature, a duck billed platypus, was a Monotremes (egg laying mammal). See if you can remember which animals are hatched and which are born!
Our topic this term is all about AFRICA. This week we looked for Kenya on the continent of Africa. The children recalled facts they had learnt during this lesson.
Abacus is now up and running. Please log into your account using the password and code on your bookmarks. If you have any trouble logging in, please just let us know. If your child finds the timing stressful on Abacus, or if you don't have access to a phone, tablet or computer, please let us know and we can give you a paper copy of the homework.
The weather sadly is turning Autumnal so please can you ensure that your child has a coat in school (NAMED!). If your child has a pair of wellingtons (NAMED!) they would like to bring to school, please bring in a bag that can hang from their pegs.
