Penhaligon Newsletter 21.4.17
This week the children have been learning about money in their maths. They have been using coins to make different amounts. In English the children wrote a recount of their holidays and we have started exploring our new text for this term ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. In PE we have started our Sports day practise and in Science we planted our own beans with Mrs Davis. In our SEAL this term we will be exploring relationships and changes.
This week’s home learning is linked to our maths learning. The children have an amount and some coins. They need to draw the coins needed to complete the amount. Use actual coins to support your child and record the total after each coin is added. For extra home learning this week make your own story map of Jack and the Beanstalk.
This week in our Phonics we have been learning about the past tense. Spellings this week are linked to irregular verbs.
Group 1- went, gave, had, told, slept, came, saw, made, ran, took.
Group 2- thought, bought, found, drew, caught, wrote, learnt, became, shone, chose.
This week we will be learning the two times table. The children have a copy of the 2x table in their spellings book. They need to be able to recall the 2x table facts in and out of order. There will be a times table check every Friday.
