Following on from last week’s work on days of the week, this week we will be by thinking about time in numeracy. We will look at an analogue clock and learn about the numbers and the hands. We will be learning how to read o’clock times and for those that are confident, half past time. The children will also learn how to write a time e.g. 12 o’clock, half past 3. If you could use your clock at home to introduce time to the children, that would be a great support.

This week we will also be continuing in our guided phonics groups and will be practising our red and green words during our phonics activities. Please help them to practise the formation of the letters and to learn the sounds, as well as practise writing in sentences using capital letters and full stops. The red words that we will be focusing on this week will be: said, where, was, when, what.

In literacy this week, we will be doing a science investigation and thinking about the world. The children will be investigating ice, how it melts and what effects it. They will be writing a prediction, observing different types of investigations to do with ice and even planning their own investigations. At the end of the investigation, we will think about what they have learnt and write a short evaluation sentence e.g. the ice melted quickest in the… On Thursday and Friday evening, please talk to your child about what they have seen in class to help reinforce their learning.

Throughout the week there will be a range of creative activities for the children to do including collage, painting and construction.

On coming into school every morning, the children will complete a variety of tasks to support their fine motor skills and weekly learning.

Reading books will be changed twice this week on Monday and Friday. New maths challenges will also be given out and intervention groups will be continuing again this week. Guided reading will continue to happen on Monday and PE will be on a Wednesday morning.

Thank you for your support,
Natalie Lane and Emma Rigarlsford
