We are Woodpecker Class
Our Spring term topic is Castles
Please see the attached link to our home learning ideas. It would be great if we could have any creations in school by 14th January.
Firstly, thank you to all of the parent helpers that we had this week. It is always great to have an extra pair of hands!
The children have been stars this week! They have been busy learning about story structure, creating story maps and writing about some scenes from our book, 'The Paper Bag Princess'. The vocabulary and story language that the children are using is great. In maths, we looked at tens and ones. We partitioned numbers using the part, whole model. In art, we created our own class coat of arms. The children had some wonderful ideas which they incorporated into their designs. Next week we will work together as a class to create a large shield that will be displayed in the school hall. The children will write their final re tell of the story we have been working on and in maths, they will look at subtraction.
Please don't forget that the children participate in number bond club every Friday. Please practise at home with your children as this really helps their progress. New spellings were issued on Wednesday, the spelling quiz for these words will happen on Wednesday morning.
Forest school is on Thursday afternoon. The weather is due to be cold so please make sure that the children have appropriate clothing.
Have a great weekend!
Now the children have had time to settle into the routines of Woodpecker class, please can we ask that you encourage them to come into class independently. This helps us to get the day underway quickly without fuss.
