This week in Literacy our book of the week has been “The Aliens Are Coming”. We have used this book to do lots of work on rhyme, and describing lots of different aliens. The children have thought of lots of different ways to talk about the aliens.
In maths we have been looking at number 9. The children have been introduced to part-whole models and we have been finding different ways to make number 9 by adding.
Our mini me challenges have included writing about aliens, writing number sentences that add up to 9, recognising the letter names and making patterns on a giant peg board.
We have now opened the mud kitchen outside and the children have been having loads of fun playing in it! As you can imagine the children can get very messy playing in here! We have provided all in one suits for them to wear while playing to protect their clothes, but the children should have a pair of wellies in school to put on when they are needed!
Today the children will be bringing home their half term homework. Their work pack includes a holiday diary, a list of tricky words, a word mat and a space man. Their challenge is to write a sentence or two each day about what they have done, remembering to include a capital letter at the start, finger spaces (with the help of their space man!) and a full stop at the end.
After the half term holidays our PE day will be changing to Monday. This is because we are lucky enough to have some staff from Woodkirk Academy coming to help teach our PE lessons. Please make sure children have a named PE kit in school. This should be in a drawstring bag, our cloakroom is not big enough to accommodate backpacks and so it is becoming very messy and difficult to keep track of the children’s belongings. As a reminder, the children should only be bringing a book bag to school each day, as we are able to store these in the classrooms rather than the cloakroom.
