I hope you had a lovely weekend. Here is our learning for the week.
This week, we will be using bar models. You may not be familiar with bar models but they are a very useful way of working out trickier calculations, and become much more useful as children work up through the school. For the time being, we will use them to support our previous addition and subtraction work and help work out calculations with lower numbers mentally.
We will be revising what the continents are, and using maps to locate specific countries in Asia where tigers live. We will also be using language relating to physical geography to describe a tiger’s habitat.
We will continue our Toys topic for science, and for our final lesson we will be doing a carousel of magnetism related activities.
We will continue to practise the different ways to write down the ‘ear’ phoneme (sound) e.g. deer and dear, and revising words with the ‘sh’ sound.
We will continue with Djembe drumming
The children will be partaking in Easter crafts.
We will look at Palm Sunday and Peter’s denial of Jesus in the Easter Story.
We will continue to practise using tennis racquets, and will be doing gymnastics on Friday with Mrs Mileham.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea Party
Thank you to those who have returned their letters to say they are coming, please remember that I need to know by Friday if you are coming so I know how much food etc. to organise.
Also, I have had a few offers to help with food- thank you very much! I will get back to you when I know the numbers.
Very sadly, Miss Dargan’s time with us is coming to an end. On Friday it will be her last official day with us before she returns to university to continue her studies. I’ve noticed a lot of positive changes in all of the children in the time she has been here, which she has certainly contributed to, and I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing her the best of luck. Her future class is a very lucky one!
