This week we have been thinking about friendship and how to help others on the playground in our circle time activities. For homework we would like the children to write a recipe for a friend. This can be written on the computer, plain piece of paper or on the sheet. They can illustrate and decorate it in any way they wish.
This week the maths homework is a set of games in EducationCity related to revising 3D shape to support our work in class. Please log on to EducationCity.com in the usual way.
This week we will be revising our fraction skills and exploring tenths. Children will be bringing home a worksheet to record their understanding. You can help your child at home by talking together and practically sharing out ten objects. This will be given out to individual children, so if your child misplaces their sheet, please see the class teacher to receive the correct replacement. (There are no links attached here for this reason.)
Children have been asked to explore the capacity of containers at home. We will then use these as bench markers at school. Please talk to your child about the amount of liquid each container each will hold and how many 150ml cups it will fill. Many Thanks.
This week we are investigating jobs and the skills needed for a range of jobs. Children have been asked to interview an adult. See link below.
Year three are excited and proud to announce the opening of their amazing juice stall. This will take place in school time on the 8th and 9th of February. You are invited to come to our special families’ event on Thursday 9th February from 3:30-4:00pm.
Come and buy a delicious juice drink made by the children. They will have applied their skills in accurately measuring capacity to create the delightful drinks on offer. The children will apply their mental maths skills adding and subtracting to serve the customers.
Whilst you sip your drink, we hope that you will enjoy looking at your child’s maths learning journey which has led to them being able to run their juice stall.
If any parents are available to come early and help the children set up, it would be most appreciated. Please speak to your child’s class teacher.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Armstrong, Mrs Senior and Mrs Harris
