A Small School with a Big Heart, guiding our children to becoming kind and courageous citizens.
Friday 25th September
We've had another great week in Owl Class!
This week in Maths we have been comparing groups of objects, comparing numbers, ordering objects and solving problems. We have been using the words 'fewer', 'greater', 'less than' and 'more than' etc. If you could encourage the children to use this language at home, it will really help them have a deeper understanding. Ask them to tell you the crocodile rhyme!
In English we've been looking at the structure of simple sentences and today have written our own great sentences using capitals, finger spaces and full stops!
We loved getting outside for our Topic lesson where we used natural resources to create self portraits! Have a look a the pictures below.
Recently we have assessed the children's Phase 3 phonic knowledge. Some children will have brought home a list of sounds for which they are not yet secure. Please look out for these in their reading records or bags. If you could practise these at home, we would be really grateful. We will be revising these in class as well as moving onto Phase 5 phonics.
Next week's common exception words: to, today, of
Next week's sounds: ea & e_e

We've had a great first few weeks in Owl Class! The children have all settled in so well and we are really proud of them.
In Maths we have been counting forwards and backwards from a given number within 20 and have been identifying 1 more than and 1 less than numbers within 10. If you could continue practising this at home, it would really help to consolidate the learning.
In English we've been looking at the different features of Fiction and Non Fiction books and have been identifying and writing our own labels. We've also grown our brains lots during Science, Computing, Topic and PE lessons! We hope you enjoy the slideshow below!
Next week's common exception words: a, the, do.
