St Piran Class Newsletter- 21st April 2017
This week we have introduced our new topic about our bodies. Thank you very much for supporting the home learning activity and delivering some beautifully labelled drawings. Children learnt so much from each other during class discussion about these. Summer told us about the smallest bone in our body and Gida told us about the longest. They were fascinated that we have a cage to protect our lungs too!
This week we have learnt ‘ai’, ‘ou’, and ‘ie’. Next week it will be ‘ea’, ‘ir’ and ‘oy’.
For home learning this week I would like the children to practise counting forwards or backwards from any number up to 100.
For an extra challenge Play ‘I spy a number’.
Give your child a clue to try and guess the number you are thinking of eg. Say, “It is 2 more than 31”, or “It is equal to 5 + 5” etc.
It’s not necessary to record anything in the home learning book but if your child would like to write a clue about a number, we will try and guess it in class.
- Encourage the children to notice that the numbers are getting bigger when they count forwards and smaller when they count backwards.
- Use the language ‘more/greater than’ and ‘less/fewer than’ when you are playing “I spy a number”.
