Hello and welcome to Wales Class!
Wales class have settled in well and are getting used to the new way of doing things. They have been doing some great learning and it has been lovely to see what they have remembered.
We are looking forward to learning about lots of fun things over the next term.
Mrs Carmichael and Miss Shore
Our English work for the first 4 weeks will be based on the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. The whole school are using the same text as it deals with many different issues that have arisen over the past 6 months. Not only is it supporting our English, but it is also giving us time to think about our feelings, ideas, opinions and understanding of the wider world.
At the moment Key Stage One, are looking at the page below. We are thinking about how some of these animals are endangered and why. We will be posting our work on here soon.
At the moment we are spending some time identifying where your child is with their phonics. We are going to start by recapping Phase 3. Once the children are secure we will move onto Phase 4 and 5. There are many great websites and games online that can support your child with their phonics, please see the bottom of the page to find a few.
In Maths we are looking at number and place value. We have been counting forwards and backwards and thinking about one more and one less. We will be moving on to compare and order numbers and become more secure using a number line. There are some useful websites at the bottom of this page if you would like to continue to support your child with their maths at home.
Our Topic at the moment is called Brainwave and we are thinking about what our brain does, how we can look after it and what we need to do to become better learners.
This topic will be coming to an end shortly, and our next topic is called Superhumans, a science based topic looking at our bodies and senses.
