Elm Newsletter 10.3.23

Apologies for the late newsletter, the snow days were a little disruptive!

The children enjoyed learning to use possessive apostrophes in sentences. We looked at lots of book titles which had possessive apostrophes too: Fig’s Giant, Spike’s Best Nest, Tiny’s Big Wish, Toffee’s Friend…

This week we are learning to use adverbs to make our writing more interesting. Adverbs describe how (clap loudly), when (clap later) and where (clap outside) actions are done. We have also seen that some sentences can start with an adverb. ‘Suddenly, the rocket zoomed into the sky.’

We are continuing our learning about fractions. We are quite confident at finding 1/2 (half) of a number or shape. Now we need to learn how to find 1/4 (quarter) of a number.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Dowell and Mrs Armstrong
