Welcome to Fern Class
We have had a great start to the new school year in Fern Class!
Our topic of 'Monsters' has really captured our imaginations and we have enjoyed taking part in many different activities in our English sessions. We have worked hard on our character descriptions and tried hard to include adjectives in our writing.
*It would be great to practise writing in our home learning books. Focus on capital letters and full stops, finger spaces, the size of different letters and spelling.
Our maths work has focussed on basic number knowledge. We have practised many different aspects such as number bonds to 10 and 20 and doubling and halving. Some of us found it tricky to remember that 7 and 3 went together and also 17+3 or 7+13.
We have also thought lots about the way a number looks. We have been using ten frames to display numbers to ten in different ways. The image below shows the number 5 displayed. Depending on how you look at the 10 frame, the number could be seen as 3+2=5 or 2+2+1=5. We are trying to understand how important it is to see a picture of what a number looks like in our heads.
