We have had a very busy half term finding out all about India. The children have really enjoyed this topic and have produced some fantastic work. This week we have made Raita dip and Mango cream...both Indian recipes. The children were brave and tried both of them. They then had to write up instructions using bossy verbs, time connectives and adverbs.
We have had a busy few weeks in maths, looking at money and now multiplication. The children have done really well in both. It would help if the children are able to explore money at home or when out at the shops. Can they pay for something or count the coins in your purse? We have been looking at 10, 2 and 5 times tables and we are practising tables daily using the 'rockstars' website. The children all have log in details in their yellow reading diaries so that they can access it at home. It is a fun way to practice times tables.
It is our class assembly next Wednesday afternoon at 2.30pm. The children all have lines to say aloud and these have been sent home. If they could practice these at home it would be a great help. They don't have to learn them off by heart but if they could practice reading them aloud it will help with their fluency. If you could encourage a loud voice that would be a help too.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible. If you are unable to attend then please feel free to send another family member or friend. It is always nice if the children have someone in the audience.
We hope you have all been getting on with the homework ok. As little or as much as you can do is fine. There are a few bits on DB primary that the children can have a look at whilst at home if they want to. If you can send the books back in next week then we can mark the homework and set some more for the following term.
Please continue reading with your children at home as regularly as possible. Every child in the class has made great progress with reading so thank you for your support at home it really does make a difference.
