|Dragon Descriptive Poetry|
During e-safety week, we investigated emails and wrote our own emails to ‘Uncle Morton’ about his dragon who had come to stay for a while. We used questions, commands and statements, and also sent and received emails from Maples class!
In mathematics we have been learning about gathering information and presenting it in different graphs and charts. We have used tally charts, pictograms and bar charts, and have also been learning more about shapes and their properties, as well as symmetry. We enjoyed an investigation about putting numbers back onto an empty hundred square, using our knowledge of times tables and place value.
We have also been on an exciting trip to the Open Zone at The Word, where we performed our fantastic dragon poems.
SATs… coming soon!
With the SATs fast approaching, some parents have been asking how they can best support their children from home. Working a little each day with your child at home can have a big impact on their progress in school. Below are some ideas of ways you can support your child’s progress from home.
Our topic for the autumn term has been ‘The Animal Kingdom’. The children have enjoyed a range of activities including exploring different habitats, producing information texts about meerkats and penguins, and writing animal poems. We have also written and performed our own version of the song ‘Animal Fair’, and carried out science investigations about which animals live in specific habitats. This month we have been preparing for Christmas by learning and performing songs for the Nativity, and having a trip to the pantomime to see Cinderella!
