Next week

Hello everyone,

Next week we have a special week! On Wednesday we have the Grote Rekendag (see the blog post on Grote Rekendag for homework) and on Thursday we have a skipping workshop. We have told the children that they can come to school wearing sports clothes if they want to. The skipping will take place outside and should be a lot of fun!

Spelling: Could you please try to encourage your child to do their spelling homework every day. They would benefit a lot from this!

Numeracy: we will be working on fractions, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to solve multiplication problems and finding specified multiples; introduce the × sign; record the 2, 5 and 10 times-tables; investigate multiplications with the same answer; write multiplications to go with arrays, rotate arrays to show they are commutative.

Literacy: We will finish the Magic Finger. We are writing stories focussing on chronological structure and expressing time (first, when, before, after, while, next.. ). Our main focus in writing is capital letters and full stops. This week we have worked hard on this and we will continue doing that next week. We will describe our favourite part of the book. Write a different ending to the book and write about our own passion.

IPC: Airports and airplanes! We are going to design and present our own in-flight entertainment pack. We will write about our product and explain why our pack is perfect for airlines. We will also finish our airport statues that we have made today (they look really cool so far!) and will preform safety instructions.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Frances and Monique
