Acorn class 7th July 2017
News from week beginning 3rd July
Wow, we have had another jam-packed week in Acorn Class topped off by the School Fair this afternoon which we hope everyone enjoyed.
In Phonics this week a lot of revision has taken place. The Reception children have been writing interesting sentences independently that use the oo, air and ure sounds in their phonics books, with a particular focus on remembering capital letters and full stops. The Year One children have been brainstorming words that use particular graphemes and writing as many sentences as possible containing the trickiest words that they could think of!
In English we went on a mini beast hunt around the school grounds which the children absolutely loved and then we used our findings as inspiration to write acrostic poems about our favourite mini beast. The children wrote brilliant poems about ants, flies, snails and spiders to name just a few and were very proud of their work. In Maths we continued to learn about multiplication and arrays. We paired up socks to count in 2’s; counted in 5’s using gloves; searched for everyday arrays around the school and looked at everyday arrays for example the trays in chocolate boxes and empty ice cube trays to write multiplication number sentences.
In other news this week our RE lesson was the Parable of the Lost Sheep which the children really enjoyed, especially making their own cotton wool lost sheep complete with googly eyes! We also watched the dress rehearsal of Bugsy Malone and met an Olympic Judo Champion who put us through our paces in a sponsored circuit.
All in all a very busy week and only two more left now!
Have a wonderful weekend.
