St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 24th March

This week we have been focussing on missing number calculations and how to solve them. In our English this week we have enjoyed writing our own Acrostic poems. In our Science we have carried out a Science investigation. We are investigating what plant needs to help them grow.

 

Phonics

This term we will be continuing our Phase 5 in Phonics. This week we have been learning about the alternative pronunciations of ‘oo’, and ‘ai’’. Next week we will be learning ‘ee’, ‘oa’ and ‘igh’.

 

Home Learning

For Home learning this week I would like the children to complete the missing number activities. Please note there are different Maths activities this week. One of the activities involves counting and deciding whether the number sentence is addition or subtraction. Another activity involves using a number line to find the missing number. The final activity involved using all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to solve missing numbers. For extra home learning this week why not have a go at writing a flower based acrostic poem or practise playing ‘Ping pong’ with your number bonds to 10 or 20. (One person says a number the other person says the other number needed to make 10/20)

 

Support tips:

  • Use counters, beads or gems (anything that you have lots of and can be moved easily) to represent numbers. Count forwards or backwards to work out which number is missing.
  • Encourage your child to read the sentence carefully.
  • In class we call the missing number something when reading the number sentence. E.g. 5 + something = 11

Friday 17th March

This week we have been finding Fractions of amounts in our Maths. In our English we started creating our own versions of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt.’

 

Phonics

This term we will be continuing our Phase 5 in Phonics. This week we have been learning about the alternative pronunciations of ‘ar’, ‘air’ and ‘or’. Next week we will be learning ‘oo’, ‘ai’ and ‘ee’.

 

Home Learning

For home learning this week I would like the children to write at least one sentence about their favourite plant or flower. We went on a plant hunt last week and saw Daffodils, Primroses and Daisies. Ask your child to explain why they have chosen their flower or plant. The children can then draw a picture of their favourite plant or flower.  For extra home learning draw/make/paint your own flowers or practise finding halves and quarters of amounts.

 

Support tips:

  • Talk to your child about their favourite plant and flower.
  • Discuss what might be a good reason for choosing a favourite flower e.g. I like Daffodils because they are bright and yellow.
  • Encourage your child to use their Phonics to help them segment.

St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 10th March

St Piran Class Newsletter- 10th March 2017

This week we have been learning about fractions in our Maths. The children have been brilliant at splitting playdough shapes into equal halves. In our English we wrote our own versions of the gingerbread man with our own characters. The children enjoyed our Cornish carousel day with Trevithick class on Monday.

 

Phonics

This term we will be continuing our Phase 5 in Phonics. This week we have been learning about the alternative pronunciations of ‘u’, ‘i’ and ‘ear’. Next week we will be learning ‘ar’, ‘air’, ‘or’.

 

Home Learning

Our home learning this week is linked to our fractions learning. The children either need to read the fraction and colour in the shape appropriately or to decorate half of the biscuit template provided. For extra home learning this week practise splitting shapes into equal halves or quarters. The children really loved using playdough to explore this.

 

Support tips:

  • Vocabulary we have used in the classroom this week-whole, equal, half, halves, splitting, parts, and quarters.
  • Cutting out shapes and cutting them in half helps children to understanding halving shapes.

We have been celebrating World Book Day throughout this week. For home learning I would like the children to draw a picture of their favourite character and write about who they are. As an extra challenge why not have a go at writing your own story or make/bake your own gingerbread man.
