This week we have been busy designing and making potions. There have been so many fantastic ideas, and the children have been so engaged when completing their writing surrounding this topic which has been great to see! I have had some great sentences about their potions today. Can your child tell you what is in our writing checklist? What makes a perfect sentence? We have been remembering capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Nicole's potion was lavender purple, and Charlie H's potion was a luminous green!
In maths this week we have been comparing number bonds, and adding together- all of the children are working really hard in this block of addition and subtraction using the mastery approach.
To mark remembrance day we have made beautiful poppies to go on our display in the school corridor. Every class has made one and it will look spectacular once it is finished! I hope those that had lunch with us enjoyed it!
Thank you to everyone who donated money today for Children in Need- I am sure the total will be counted and announced shortly.
Next week we have dental awareness day on Monday. All children will be off timetable, and we will be completing activities based on oral hygiene.
We have a phonics workshop on Thursday- if you can make it, it will be very beneficial and will give you an insight into how we teach phonics and why. I am hoping to run an evening session for those parents who cannot make it. If it can be arranged it will be Thursday evening, if not there will be an evening one available in due course- I will let you know about this for definite on Monday.
Have a great weekend, I am off to eat lots of cake!
