St Piran Class Newsletter- 25th November 2016
This week we have finished writing our bossy sandwich instructions in our English. We have been learning about more than and less than in our Maths. We have also started our rehearsals for the Christmas Nativity and the children are all very excited about the play.
This week in Phonics we have learnt the ‘ay’, ‘ou’ and ‘ie’ phonemes. Next week we will be learning ‘ea’ as in cup of tea, ‘oy’, and ‘ir’. If you have spare time practise segmenting words with these phonemes in with your child.
This week in our maths we have been learning all about place value. For your home learning I would like you to complete the missing number sequences or to order the numbers from smallest to biggest. For additional home learning this week why not practise sequencing two digit numbers from biggest to smallest and smallest to biggest or log on to Mathletics using your log in in your reading record and complete the Place Value activities on there. Don’t forget to practise your lines for our Nativity too.
- Missing number activity-encourage your child to read the sequence out loud so they can see whether the numbers are getting smaller or bigger.
- Use a numberline for extra support if needed.
- Sequencing numbers by size- Read the four numbers first. Cross them out as you put them in order. Check it through when finished.
Our performance is on Wednesday the 14th December at 2pm. We hope to see you there. Please make sure your child’s costume is in school in a named carrier bag by the 9th December.
