20th September 2021
The children had a great week of learning and have settled well into their RWI groups for Literacy and Maths too.
We covered a number of topics in PSHE including understanding kind and unkind behaviours. The children have really enjoyed their PE sessions on Monday and Friday with myself and the Saints coaches.
Last week our star of the week was Blake who has shown great resilience in the first couple of weeks of school.
The week coming!
The children will continue in their groups and new books will be sent out accordingly depending on the group your child is in.
In case of any confusion I just wanted to clarify that children read with an adult everyday in these groups but this is not recorded in the reading diaries as it would be too laborious to do so. If we get the chance we will try to do additional reading but I have an expectation that children will read each day with their parent for 5 minutes minimum. I was very impressed with the spellings the children did on Friday - new spellings out today!
This week in Maths we will be exploring representing number in different ways, counting forwards and backwards to 50 and one more and one less than a given number to 50. Please find a link to a workbook for this unit if you wish to pursue this at home.
Art and Design
This week we will be looking at using composition styles, collage, paint and line for the children to create their own abstract pieces. we are starting this looking at the work of Beatriz Milhazes as well as other artist such as Claude Debussy and David Hockney.
Have a great week!
