Welcome to Angelfish Class!
Monday 17th September – Friday 21st September 2018
We’ve had another busy week in angelfish class this week! In English, the children have enjoyed using dictionaries and the alphabet to write lists in alphabetical order.
We have been working on our number bonds this week in maths and have found number bonds to 5, 10 and some of us to 20! We have been writing number sentences in our maths books and tried hard to record these neatly. There has been some great addition work going on.
The children have continued to learn lots of new skills in our gymnastics lessons focusing on jumping, balancing and rolling safely.
Well done Angelfish class!
For homework this week please continue to complete any of the activities from the 'people who help us' challenges. We have had some lovely emergency vehicles brought in this week! We have also sent out some letter formation work which we have been working on in handwriting. Please make sure your children give it to us so we can check it and file it in their homework folder.
Monday 10th – Friday 14th September 2018
We have had a lovely first full week in Angelfish Class and the children have been very busy! We have been writing captions and lists this week, linked to our topic ‘people who help us’. I Maths we have focussed on ordering numbers and making teen numbers using tens and ones. Some of the children were very good with this and practised making numbers up to 50! We have introduced ‘star jobs’ this week to encourage the children to complete a challenge more independently. In phonics we have been looking at the alphabet, recapping on all the letter sounds and letter names with capital and lower case letters. They have worked very hard and will be very tired this week!
Following our curriculum meeting you might want to see our website where you will find addition, subtraction, multiplication and division strategies under about us/school polices. You will also find KS1 mathematical skills which will give you an insight to what the children will be covering. We are also looking into different ways to help you support your child in Mathematics.
For homework, please complete any of the activities on the ‘People who help us’ challenge sheet we have sent home.
Thursday 6th – Friday 7th September 2018
A huge welcome back to everyone in Angelfish Class. We hope you all had a lovely Summer break. We have had a great first week back. The children have all settled in really well. We have been focussing on our school values which spell out ‘ASPIRE’, discussing what these mean to us and reading a book called ’Giraffes can’t dance’ to help us understand how important it is to try something new. The children have really impressed us with their brilliant writing about all the fun things they got up to in the holidays. Well done Angelfish!
