Happy New Year

Welcome back!

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. It was great to see all the children back and in such good form this week.

Maths

We have started work on multiplication this week. Our focus has been on making equal groups and writing corresponding number sentences using addition. Eg. I have 3 groups of 5.

5 + 5 + 5 = 15.

English

Children have been continuing on with their read, write, inc. We will also be preparing for a visit later this term from Steve Antony. He is the Author and illustrator of the books ‘The Queen’s handbag and I’ll wait, Mr Panda’. Our afternoon work will be focused around these books and I shall keep you all updated with the work the children produce.

Art & Design

I introduced the topic of ‘puppets’ this week. The children were delighted and very eager to get to work. We will not actually be making puppets for a few weeks as we will need to focus on joining materials, planning and designing first but I am excited to see the children so engaged.

Spellings will go out today. Children can complete these on the spelling hub website or in their books. A new homework menu has also been given out so they can set about completing some tasks of it before the end of this term.

Times table test will be Monday next week due to Mrs Crowe being in with Year 2 that day. Hope that is all okay.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Clough.
