Miss Kirk :)
It was great to get back into the swing of things last week with our usual timetable and lessons. It was a busy week, with lots of new times and dates to remember. We had a lovely time on our local walk around West Bridgford where we looked at some of the architecture the town has to offer. Thanks again to all those who came along to help! :).
In literacy this week, we're continuing to read the story of 'Street Child'. We have just discovered that the evil Mr Spink has forced Jim's family out of their home. What are they going to do? The children will write sentences about the story so far, looking at the different sentence types, including simple, compound and complex. They'll also begin thinking about effective language used to describe settings and using drama techniques to develop their understanding of the story.
After spending a week on place value of four digit numbers, we're now going to focus on comparing numbers. We'll continue to develop reasoning skills and explain our thinking using correct mathematical vocabulary.
After taking in some of the sights of West Bridgford, we're now going to learn the features of Victorian houses and draw them accurately on our own designs. It is interesting to hear the different opinions of modern and old design features.
A reminder that homework has now been handed out, with the first one due in on Friday. Mathletics has also been set and is to be completed for Wednesday.
Planners will be checked tomorrow to ensure children are continuing to read at home at least 3 times a week.
See you tomorrow!
Welcome back, Class 4K! :)
What a fantastic first week back it has been - I have LOVED every minute of it. We've been very busy designing and making our enchanted hats which have the ability to transport us to another place or world! Here, we thought about where the hat would take us if we could choose, and thought about how our hats were going to look. We then spent Friday morning getting extremely sticky when making our hats!
Key dates for next week:
Monday 11th September - Meet the teacher - 2:45pm.
Wednesday 13th September - Mathletics homework set.
Thursday 14th September - Times tables test.
Next week the real fun begins! Have a lovely weekend, all of you. See you on Monday! :)
