Hi everyone, sorry for any confusion. Skip2BFit is on Tuesday so I have sent children home with their PE kits. They need to come in these on Tuesday morning and will stay in them the whole day.
Also a quick homework reminder. I will be collecting the homework books in next Friday to see the homework that children have been doing over this half term so any last additions need to be done by then. Also the spellings have changed and you may have noticed that some words in the spelling list are not the same ones as they have had in their spellings at home. They will, however, have the same spelling rule in them. This is so I can see if children have managed to grasp the spelling rule or if they are just reciting words from their spelling list without realising the importance of the rule.
Have a lovely weekend all,
We have just launched a new exciting way to practise the times tables at home and in School. All children in classes 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been given login details, picked their rock names and created their avatar. Pupils have been set in their year groups into different bands depending on which times tables they are working on.
All pupils have taken home a letter with their login details. These can also be found inside their homework books, alongside details about which times tables to work on that week.
This has been hugely popular and the Times Tables Rock Stars after-school Club is full this term.
We have been continuing our work on Place Value this week. Children have been using a Place Value chart and ordering numbers based on the amount of tens and ones in each number.
This week we started our Scratchy Rabbit Challenge. Children have already planned their stories and created and discussed their main characters and the setting. We hope to have these written up and up on the website by next week for anybody who wants to read some the children’s fantastic work.
We were looking at the gifts that Christians believe God has given them this week. There were several suggestions such as ‘beautiful days’, ‘life’, ‘food’ and ‘animals to care for’. We created some posters for our in class display which has really started to brighten up the classroom.
Children were locating Shrewsbury and Ironbridge this week to start off our work on Ironbridge. We first looked at our location in the world. Then looked at the UK and then a local map where we followed the River Severn from Shrewsbury to Ironbridge.
Homework books have gone home as usual.
Enjoy the weekend, Miss Clough.
This afternoon a letter will be sent home with children in Years R, 1, 2, 3 and 4 regarding this year’s Flu Immunisations. The immunisations will take place on Tuesday 10 October 2017.
Please contact the school office if you have any questions or if you do not receive this letter. Thank you.
In English we have been looking at using adjectives to describe. We have started to understand that an adjective, coupled with a noun is called an expanded noun phrase (big, blue butterfly) and have been trying to write our own. We will be starting the latest Scratchy Rabbit challenge next week and using noun phrases to help add detail and interest to our writing.
We have been looking at partitioning two digit numbers in various ways this week. We have used the part whole model and classroom resources to support our learning. Children are starting to understand that 2-digit numbers can be partitioned into various way (24 – 20 + 4, 10 + 14) and we will be looking at writing number sentences to support what we know. Any extra work on partitining would be really useful for the children going into next week.
We started our science topic on materials this week. We were looking at natural materials in Forest school and focused on the difference between man made and natural materials in the classroom. Children have been encouraged to describe the properties of materials and there are some really useful games on purple mash to support children’s understanding if you would like to have a go at home.
Spelling investigations went home home today and don’t forget to be starting to look at some of the homework tasks on the homework menu.
Have a lovely weekend,
Please see below the list for Drop Everything And Read this term.
This list will also be displayed in reception tomorrow morning. Please ensure that you enter school through the school office as you will be required to sign in. Thank you.
Just a quick message to say a huge welcome back to all the children and parents from Class 3. Our main topics this half term are Ironbridge, materials and their properties and the circus so feel free to have a look at these at home. Homework menus, spellings, reading book and records along with books bags will all be going home towards the end of this week.
Thanks, Miss Clough.
Just a reminder that there will be no C3 Maths Booster this afternoon, Monday 10 July or next Monday 17 July.
CRIME SCENE ALERT! Some of you may have already heard about a very serious incident in Class 3 this week. The scene was all cornered off on Monday morning and I have a class full of detectives who are now collecting evidence and trying to come to the bottom of the situation. All we know so far is some brownies (left by myself on Friday evening) have disappeared. We collected hand prints this morning and will be questioning all major suspects later this week. Supsects are as follows: Mr McGrath, Mrs Hillidge, Mrs Beard, Mr Lewis and the Cleaner. The children have been very excited to be involved. We shall try our best to keep you updated with proceedings.
