This Term's Learning Expedition

We are learning about Lost In The Woods in our learning. See our curriculum map in the link below to find out how we will be involving all curriculum areas.

Friday 22nd September 2017

 

This we have been using column addition to help us solve addition calculations and we have been re-imagining the story of Jack in the Beanstalk to create our own adventures for Jack, they have been very imaginative! Well done Eagle class!

We also had a very different Art lesson this week. We are exploring Georgia O'Keefe's painting The Lawrence Tree, we had lots of imaginative ideas about what the painting could be showing but decided it is mostly likely from the point of view of someone lying under a tree looking up at the stars. We decided to recreate a sketch of the painting by drawing under our tables, as if we were lying under a tree ourselves. It was tricky but we really enjoyed ourselves.

In today’s lesson we used a variety of musical instruments, as well as our voices, to create the sounds of the storm we thought the boy in our story, Into the Forest by Anthony Browne, would be able to hear.

PE

 

Our PE day is currently Wednesday. However please make sure your child has their P.E. kits in every day in case of timetable changes. Could all clothing be clearly named also to avoid anything getting lost. 

 

Homework

 

The children will be expected to read at least 3 times at home during the week. Please could you write in the name of the book and pages read and sign this in your child’s reading log. I will be collecting these in every Friday to monitor reading of the week. It is important that your child practises their reading at home to ensure they make good progress.

 

Spellings will be sent home on a weekly basis to reinforce spelling patterns and strategies introduced throughout the week during phonic and spelling sessions. Please could you encourage your child to practise these at home as these will be tested on a Friday.

 

Times tables should be practised throughout the week as the children will be tested on these in their maths lessons on a Friday. This should be ongoing so please try to practise them with your child at any possible opportunity.

 

Reading, Spelling and Times Tables will be the main priority for your child’s homework. Other pieces of homework may be sent home on occasions but this will not be every week and will not always be a written piece. Privilege time will be awarded on a Friday afternoon to children who complete all homework.
