Weekly News wb Monday 14th November - Team Indigo and Team Royal


We have all had a lovely week in Team Indigo and Team Royal. Take a look at what we have been learning.



This week in maths we have been focusing on Division. We started the week sharing, we looked at the divisor to see how many sharing circles we needed to draw. Next, we looked at the first number and counted carefully and sharing equally in the circles. For example,



For the latter part of the week we looked at grouping. We had to see how many groups we needed. We did this by looking at the divisor and counting out that number carefully then circling them into a group. We did this until we had nothing left over. We then were able to count how many groups there were.




This week the children in RWI have been focusing on set 3 sounds and re-reading sentences to check it makes sense. We have also been checking for capital letters, spelling mistakes and full stops. The children are really building on their fluency when reading, any additional reading at home would be hugely beneficial.


This week in English we have continued to look at The Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson. This week we have focused our skills on exploring the scenery and the setting of the book. We have used our 5 senses to bring to life the book and be able to describe the scenery. We were really able to immerse ourselves into the book this week and were even able to explore our woodland area too. We have been using various punctuation including (? ! . ,), have looked at co-ordinating conjunctions and, or, but, and focused on using word classes for example, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and nouns to really describe the setting of the book.



Thematic Curriculum

This week we have been historians and geographers! In history this week we looked at when animals used to be in the circus and how they could have been treated. We wrote a postcard to the Circus on how the animals may feel and what acts they could use instead of animals. In geography this week we looked at maps, symbols and keys. We looked at a variety of maps and enjoyed creating our own maps. To end the week we imagined a circus was coming to school, and we needed to create a map for the visitors that would attend the circus. We had to think what our key would need to show and the symbols on the map.


This week in SPaG, we have been focusing on the past and present tense.


Here is another great catchy song we have been listening to this week:


Next week in:

Next week in maths we will be learning fractions.



Next week in our Thematic Curriculum we will become Scientists, and we will learn about the materials used to make a big top and costumes.

Next week in SPaG we will be learning alternative ways to spell ay, ee, igh, ow and oo.
