This Week:

English: 

TWe have continued looking at The Jolly Postman. We have been writing letters to different characters and looking at persuasive language

This week we have been looking at number bonds to 10 and 20. We have been using this knowledge to help us with our addition and subtraction facts.

 

Topic: 

We have been focusing on Science. Looking at materials and why we use them. We had a special science challenge to use different materials to try and protect an egg from getting broken. It was lots of fun!

Homework:
 
Homework books:
We have sent out the homework books with a task related to our science topic this week. To go on a material hunt around your house and make a list of as many different materials you find.
 
We have set the children three addition tasks to complete on Sumdog.
 
We have started doing phonics lessons in groups. The children know what group they are in and we have written on a post-it note in their book bags. We will start spellings on Friday 4th October, they will have five words from their focus sound and then five tricky words that will be the same across all groups.
