Intended Learning- Week Commencing 09.10.17

Class 1 Elephants
For week beginning: 9th October 2017

I hope you have had a lovely weekend. I'm certainly looking forward to the week ahead as last week was so enjoyable. Mrs Found and I were constantly discussing how settled and well behaved the children were last week- long may it continue!


Our investigation on germination last week was very exciting! This week we will be writing conclusions about it. We will also learn what plants need to grow, and begin another investigation to do with this.


We will be continuing  ‘Addition within 10’ this week. This will include more practise on quick recall, and will involve using learning from last week to help solve word problems.


We will continue our work on  Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be practising writing sentences (including full stops and capital letters) and considering vocabulary to use in preparation of rewriting the story later in the week.


We will be identifying the following Phase 5 sounds:

‘i_e’- a split vowel digraph (as in like)

‘o_e’- a split vowel digraph (as in note)

‘u_e’- a split vowel digraph (as in cube)

In addition we will be continuing our review of the sounds and tricky words covered this year so far.


The children will be making Christmas cards.


We will be role playing ‘Jonah and the Whale’


We will continue to develop gross  motor skills in this week’s Multiskills lesson, and team building activities in this week’s Outdoor Adventurous Activity lesson.


We will be practising with instruments as part of a performance in our ongoing unit ‘Hey You!’
