Another week has flown by in Chestnut Class. Our 'Star Learner' this week is Ross-John, we are proud of the way he is working and the commitment he demonstrates - Well done!
This week in Literacy we have been looking at a book called 'The Jar of Oil'. The children wrote some lovely letters to the Prince begging for another jar of oil. They explored correct punctuation and the use of adverbs and adjectives as a way to add interest to their writing.
The RWI storybooks sent home should correspond to the books we are reading in class. For some of you we have had to make some books. Please make sure your child reads this book during the week as a priority. It will help them to learn the key vocabulary in the book we use in school.
We continue our work on Place Value to 100 next week. There are several core skills children should practice for this unit:
Counting forwards to 100.
Counting backwards from 100 (lots struggled with this).
Counting in tens.
Counting forwards and backwards from any given number.
Practise these skills with your child and check this link for further revision:
This week we have been learning about the UK. Specifically its four countries, capitals and surrounding seas. We have also touched upon the human and physical features of the different countries within the UK and this will continue next week. I hope we will be able to tie this in with some art as well to really consolidate this work. Please watch this video with your child.
Have a great weekend!
