We have been working on the ‘-ce’ and ‘ge’ letter groups. These can be found in words like palace, spice, garage and hinge. These are quite tricky but we will revise these over the course of the year.
The children spent some time using their imagination this week ‘buying’ items from a shop with their ‘10p’. We also looked at worded problems for adding two single digit numbers together. We will be looking at subtracting this week if you would like to have a go with your child over the weekend.
We have been learning about the different seasons within the year. We talked about changes in weather and our clothing throughout the year. We will be continuing this over the next few weeks.
We have been writing questions to the Jolly Postman this week as we have started our unit on letter writing. We looked at different types of letters, formal and informal, as well as postcards and other items we might receive in the mail.
The children had the opportunity to work with the Chromebooks this week and used them to log on to the laptop as well as log into Chrome Canvas. They will have the opportunity to use the computers for the next few weeks to draw a picture using the trackpad, developing the skills of double tapping, changing the colour of the paintbrush and adjusting the size of the brush.
