The children’s knowledge of London as our capital city is really growing. They can recognise familiar landmarks and have used this information to write a letter as a character in this week’s book: Topsy and Tim visit London. All children are having a go at writing their own sentences and some are including conjunctions such as ‘and’ to join ideas together.
In maths we are practising our bonds of numbers to 10 and making sure we can record fact families using addition and subtraction sentences. We have also started to learn about shape. We have recognised, named and sorted simple 3D and 2D shapes by looking at their properties.
Please ask your child to find things around the home which are:
- 3D shapes – cubes, cuboids, spheres, pyramids and cones.
- 2D shapes – circles, squares, triangles and rectangles.
In geography this week, the children have learnt about Wales as part of the United Kingdom. They should know the capital city, national flower, national vegetable and be able to recognise the Welsh flag.
In history, we looked at the importance of a family tree to the monarchy. The children had a go at drawing their own family tree.
Please remember that PE is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure that all items of clothing which are likely to be removed during the day are clearly named. We often have a collection of jumpers and cardigans with no names, they must have come from some where!
Your child needs the following things in school everyday:
- a clean water bottle
- a warm coat with a hood
- their book bag with their reading book and their reading diary
We have started to learn our class song ready for Christmas so watch this space!
Have a great weekend,
Mrs Dowell, Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Savory
