Welcome to Bluebell Class

The children have had another great week!

 

Home learning journals have now been handed out and I have already seen some great covers!

On Friday a home learning ideas sheet was given to the children. These are just suggestions, please feel free to pick and choose which you would prefer to do and let me know if this hasn't made it home.

In Literacy Bluebell Class have been reading about 'Morris the Mankiest Monster'. He lives in a house full of mud and slime and flosses his teeth with slugs! The children have loved the story and have written some great character and setting descriptions. They also made a friend for Morris, coming up with some very creative ideas!

 

Next week the class will be thinking more about description so using adjectives when speaking would be a great help!

In Maths the children were introduced to tens frames. Using these they practiced making numbers using the counters as well as finding the number bonds to ten. When the children have used them more, hopefully they were will have a visual image of what ten looks like as well as the numbers that add together to make ten. On Friday the class had a go at using them to add. They rolled two dice and showed each number on a tens frame. It was then easy to move some counters over to complete the ten on one of the frames and then count the ones left over.

 

Next week Bluebell Class will be continuing to practice using the tens frame.

In Art this week, the children used pastels to draw Morris. They watched Ben Cort, the 'Aliens in Underpants' illustrator, drawing some of the characters and then they used some of the techniques to draw Morris. The pictures are great and have brightened up the classroom! It is great to see so many artists in Bluebell Class!
