This week the children have continued to review Phase 5, practising reading and writing words using the alternative ways of making the ‘oo’, ”air’ and ‘er’ sounds as well as learning to recognise whether the grapheme ‘ow’ makes the ‘oa’ or ‘ow’ sound in a word. It’s getting quite tricky but the children are becoming more confident with practice and will take their spellings home on Monday.
In Literacy we have been identifying and writing nouns and adjectives in sentences and next week we will be making up our own characters for the story and writing character descriptions for them.
In Maths we have continued our unit on Place Value, partitioning the same number in different ways, writing numbers to 100 words, numerals and in their expanded form as a number sentence. Today the children were finding the missing number on number lines to 100, even when the intervals were not numbered and they only had start and end points. I was really proud of them.
We have started our Geography unit by learning about the features of a town and the countryside and had great fun in Art this afternoon painting a landscape in the style of Claude Monet. We hope to finish them next week and share some pictures with you.
Please remember to keep reading and always record in their yellow reading records when they read at home with you. Thank you.
Have a lovely weekend.
