What another great week for Team Topaz and Team Aqua. Check out what we have been up to!
This week in maths we have looked at odd and even numbers, repeated addition and arrays. Take a look at some of our maths below…
Fact of the week!
Next week our Fact of the Week is
2 + 3 = 5
This week in English we have continued ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’ by Julia Donaldson. We have been focusing on different word classes and conjunctions. We have also continued to work on constructing simple sentences accurately, and we even had a go at editing and improving our own writing!
In RWI this week we have been focusing on building up fluency when reading, this included focusing on pace, speed, expressions and reading punctuation. Any additional practice at home will be hugely beneficial.
SPAG (Spellings, Punctuation and Grammar)
This week in SpaG we have been looking at the sound i-e, i, y, igh, and ie. We have learnt that these sounds all sound the same. We read the words, circled the right sound and then sorted the words.
This week we have continued the unit Fire Fire! We started the week by discussing different jobs people have today. We then looked at jobs in the 17th century for example, blacksmiths, chimney sweeps, firefighters, gong farmers, rat catchers. We then had to order them from our favourite to least favourite and to explain why. To end the week, we looked at Firefighters in the past and what equipment they used, their skills and uniform, and compared what is similar and what is different to now.
This week we used pipe cleaners to practise plaiting using three different colours. We then used what we had learnt in the previous week to shape and mould the clay into 3 equal lengths. We then began to plait the clay, take a look at us in action!
In Handwriting, we have been practising our print letters using the RWI patters. Super handwriting Team Aqua and Team Topaz!
Next week in:
Next week in English we will continue The Gruffalo’s Child and look at time conjunctions and constructing sentences accurately.
