We have had a busy week and the children have worked hard. We had a lovely visit from Mrs Woodhouse and baby Sophie. Sophie is 15 weeks old now and just beautiful. The children noticed lots of small changes in Sophie, especially how she can hold her head up herself and likes to stand while being held! They asked Mrs Woodhouse some good questions about baby Sophie and how she is developing. She was impressed with their observations.
English: We have continued our work on, ‘The Lion Inside.’ We have read the next few pages and explored the character and appearance of the lion. The children impressed me so much with their writing about the lion that I had to fetch Miss Sutton and Mrs Friday to come and see their work and Mrs Clarkson also popped along to have a look. We also looked at exclamation marks and the children wrote exclamation words, phrases and sentences for when the lion and mouse first meet.
Maths: We have finished the chapter on number problems in maths and have also does lots of extra extension problems. The children found some of the problems quite tricky, so we will revisit them later in the year.
Phonics: We have continued recapping and revising all the sounds and alternative sounds learnt. We are reading lots of alien words in preparation for the phonics screening. The children just need to continue to spot the digraph, split digraph and trigraph in the words they are reading.
RE: We have continued with our sacred places unit of work after taking a mini break to think about Easter and what it means to us. We have looked at Islam and shared a book called, “My Muslim Faith.” The children wrote questions that they would like to ask a Muslim about their faith. These were thoughtful and demonstrated a real maturity. They thought about how a Muslim may feel when they are in the mosque. They enjoyed writing their names in Arabic
Hope you have a lovely long weekend. Fingers crossed the sun shines. Look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.
