In class this week we have been working on our phonics. The phonemes we learnt were ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’ and ‘ng’. We have also started to build up our wall of tricky words!

For our maths lessons, we estimated how many objects there were and checked our answers by counting them.

 

We also met Jigsaw Jack for the start of our PSHE topic, whilst in art, we have been using oil pastels to create images based on the book we have been reading, Here We Are.

Week Ending 2/10/20

We have begun to develop our use of mathematical language, such as more and fewer, when comparing two sets of objects. Our afternoons have involved lots of maths games to develop fluency in the subject.

Week Ending 9/10/20

This week we have continued our work on our new history topic about Travel and Transport! We have begun to make comparisons between the transport used in the past to the transport used now.

Week Ending 16/10/20

In class this week, we have been looking at 2D shapes and their properties.

For our History topic, we discussed what transport was used in the past and why. We then had a go at making our own Viking Longships!

Week Ending 23/10/20

In maths this week, we searched the classroom for 3D shapes and tallied the different shapes that we came across. To finish the week, we had a go at making our own 3D shapes and labelling them.
