This week the children have been focusing on the letter groups used for split digraphs i-e and e-e. The children have grasped this new learning really well and are enjoying noticing the words within our everyday language.
This week we finished our unit on addition and subtraction and completed our assessment. One of the areas we will continue to revisit will include supporting the children to write the fact families, for example:
5 + 3 = 8 8 - 3 = 5
3 + 5 = 8 8 - 5 = 3
8 = 5 + 3 3 = 8 - 5
8 = 3 + 5 5 = 8 - 3
We have been working hard to learn our nativity songs in class. This week we got to meet up with year 2 and sing together. We will have a number of joint rehearsals before the big show! Thank you to those of you who have already sent in named costumes, we are storing them in a safe place until our dress rehearsal.
We wrote our information page about Botley from our plans this week. The children have retained a lot of different facts about our local area. We were very pleased to see some of the features we had discussed come up in their writing. All were able to write a caption for their pictures.
