It has been a great few weeks so far for the Autumn term. We have been working on our techniques ready to create our own portraits in the style of Andy Warhol and we have been working really hard in our maths using different methods of counting, including in 2's, 5's and 10's, and showing numbers in different ways. This week we will be working on our addition and subtraction skills.
We will also be working on making our sentences interesting through using verbs and adjectives.
Thank you for working hard at home too! It has been great to see that children are reading lots and they are keen to get started on their Doodlemaths.
I will be sending the Doodlemaths logins home this week.
Below is the homework letter and the curriculum letter. These will give you information about what we are covering over the Autumn term and it also has suggestions on the homework you could do for each half term.
Hope you all have a brilliant week!
Welcome to Chestnut's class page!
I am really looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday for the first day back. I really hope you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and you are excited to be coming back to school.
We HIGHLY recommend you visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk and try some of their free phonics games. The children have loved them and they have made a big impact.
Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly taking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - NEW HOMEWORK -
This term we are going to be Time Travellers! We will be exploring different periods of times and the big events that happened. This will include Monarchs, lifestyle and how life has changed for children since the 1800's.
Spellings will start being sent home WB 16th September. They will consist of common exception words and words that follow a spelling pattern or particular spelling rule. They will be given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Please support and encourage your children to practise reading and writing their spellings.
Please encourage your child to complete 20 stars on their doodle maths each week. This is part of their homework. If you have any problems or queries regarding Doodle maths please talk to Mrs Dixon or Mrs Yockney.
Please visit the >Numicon< website for free downloadable resources, should you need them to support your child at home.
