Maths Parent Worshop Presentation

Week beginning 5th November....

The week will begin with a special surprise for the children.....we are very luck as we have some reindeer visiting us on Monday morning which I am sure that the children will be really excited about!


In literacy we will be continuing to do activities related to our 'Talk for Writing' story called 'Old Mac's Farm' as well as talking and writing about our reindeer visit. We will also be continuing to think about people who help us which is our topic this half-term.


In Maths we will be focussing on 2D shapes....we will be doing activities to help us to be able to identify simple 2D shapes and to be able to talk about and describe them.


This week the children will learn about why we wear poppies before we make our own. We will also be holding a 2 minute silence on Friday morning in our assembly.


Reading books....

As you are aware reading books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday in order for your child to be able to read the book twice to allow for consolidation. However, at parents evening a few of you asked for a new reading book each day as you feel that this will benefit your child. This is absolutely fine - if you wish for your child to have a new reading book each day we are happy to issue two reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday. Please just write a short note in your child's reading diary to let us know if you would like this to happen. Thank you!

A few pictures of what we have been doing this week!
