Week beginning 25.11.19
This week the children have been looking at an alternative version of the traditional tale Cinderella. 'The Egyptian Cinderella' is a book about Rhodophis who is stolen from Greece by pirates and is sold to be a slave. Rhodopis is taunted by the Egyptian servants and they demand that she completes many chores. As a reward for her ability to dance she is given rosy red slippers, sadly one of the slippers is stolen by a falcon who'e been sent by Horus, the God of the Sun...
Wondering how the story ends? Why not ask your child to share the ending with you?
In Maths the children have been learning the 6 times tables and how this can be represented in different ways. Can your child recall the 6 times table?
Mrs Evans and I have noticed a decline in the number of children reading at home. It is imperative that the children read regularly at home and that an adult signs their reading record at least once a week.
Week beginning 18.11.19
This week the children have enjoyed collecting information about the Egyptian pyramids. They then used this information to create a fact file. We are very proud of the work they produced.
Week beginning 7.10.19
This week we have been continuing with column subtraction with exchange. We are going to apply this knowledge when solving one and two step word problems. Our times table recall is improving, helped in class by participating in Supermovers - if you want to try this at home, this is the web address https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-collection/zr4ky9q
In English we have studied examples of suspense, the children really enjoyed this and are now able to recognise the features used. We watched a clip from Malorie Blackman and read extracts of suspense writing too.They will be writing their own pieces next which they are all looking forward to.
Science has been great fun - lots of fizz and bubbles! Why not ask your child about the fun they had!
Don't forget your Harvest Festival donations please.
Lime class have enjoyed using place value counters to support their understanding of column addition.
