Term 5 Week 3
This week we have been learning about inverse operations! We have found out about addition and subtraction number families and are becoming really confident with this!
This week we have sorted toys by their properties. We have been using key vocabulary: Heavy, Light, Soft, Hard, Shiny and Dull. We have also been looking at and discussing toys from the ‘past.’ We had to order a number of toys in chronological order! This was harder than we thought! On Friday, after carrying out an investigation, we designed our own bath tub toy, we had to ensure the materials we chose were waterproof.
You will see a few slight changes over the next week in year one’s morning routine. We are starting to introduce children to ‘Morning Journals.’ This will be your child’s diary, they will need to complete an activity on the board i.e. how are you feeling today? What did you have for breakfast etc. Then they will have an opportunity to write whatever they please in their journal. This will be followed by a well-being activity, such as Yoga! This is in preparation for their transition into year 2 and also an opportunity to express their feelings and develop their writing skills.
“My Home Town”
Where we grow up plays a huge part in our lives – shaping who we are, what we do, who we know and where we go! For your home learning project for ‘Good to be Me’, over the course of Term 5, we would like you to create something that tells us all about what ‘My Home Town’ means to you. This home learning can take any form – there is no right or wrong way but you can be as creative as you like!
- Swimming is on Thursdays. Please avoid putting children in tights and bikinis (If possible.)
