Welcome to Daisy Class!
It has been lovely to welcome all of the children back after the Easter holidays and with such beautiful weather! They have all settled in well to the new term and we are ready and raring for the busy weeks ahead.
In Maths ...
...we have been learning about time. We have needed a refresher on how to tell the time to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to so any practise of this at home will greatly further the learning. We have also moved on to reading the time to the nearest 5 minutes and have looked at how this links with the 5 times table. Duration of time has also been covered and some of us are beginning to show an understanding of this. Next week we move on to Capacity so please keep going with reading the time on an analogue clock.
In Literacy ...
... with have started reading The BFG in line with our Topic of Roald Dahl. Children have loved listening to the story and watching the short trailor for the recent film. We planned and wrote a description of the street scene from the opening of the film and the vocabulary that children have used in their writing has been super!
In Science ...
... we have continued our learning of Seasonal Changes and children when on a Spring walk around the school. They spotted many signs of Spring which they wrote about in Science books as well as on Spring blossom for our display.
On Friday we were feeling Fun and Fit! Students from Fullbrook School came to support our Fun Fit activities and we were definitely feeling like we had had a good work out by the end of the morning. We rounded off our afternoon with some more physical activity using 'Jump Start Jonny' and it is was lovely to see the children really joining in and having a go, especially when they started singing.
If you have any questions about the learning or how you can support your child at home please do not hesitate to speak to us.
