I will be assessing the children’s comprehension skills this week as well as assessing their spelling, knowledge of punctuation and grammar.    We will finish the week studying the ‘friends and family’ page from the fabulous book, You Choose by Nick Sharratt.  The first lesson will involve lots of chatting – about what they can see on the page!


This week we will be continuing with column addition with re-grouping before moving onto subtraction with re-grouping.  In addition to this, we will also be carrying out a range of activities involving the 100 square which will help the children become secure with numbers and place value.  We will also solve problems and explain reasoning both verbally and in written form.


The children are continuing to have a 30 minute drumming session every week.  Whilst we would like to be selfish and continue these sessions, we need to let Y1 and YR join in with the fun so our sessions will finish at Christmas.   


We will be rehearsing for our Nativity performance several times this week.  As mentioned in the class notes, ALL costumes need to be bought into school on Monday 11th December.  Thank you for your support.


We are on Week 6 Spellings this week –  The /v/ sound at the end of the words spelt with ‘ve’.  Please do support your child with these every week;  I test them on a Friday morning and all children then give me a score out of 10;  it is sometimes quite obvious who hasn’t been learning them (plus your children are very honest!).

An activity on quizlet has been created.
