It was a pleasure to see so many parents and family members at our Coffee Morning, we hope you enjoyed hearing about what the children have been up to and were impressed at their confidence, we certainly were!
It has also been lovely to chat to you at Parents Evening and there have been lots of positive comments on the children's work and progress.
Thank you for all the wonderful rocket models we have received so far, so much time and effort has gone into them and we look forward to sharing the children's Homework Buffet work in March. Please don't feel obliged to do the activities if there is too much going on or if it becomes a battle! We merely offer these ideas as enrichment and hope they don't make home life more stressful!
This week we have been learning the sounds gl,pl,cl and fl. Please reinforce these when you can. Spellings will be given but not tested until the end of the first week back, we do practise these in school and do not put pressure on the children to get them all correct .With the spellings, most importantly, we hope they commit them to memory and use them in their writing.
We have now completed our phonics assessments (not the official Year 1 tests) and will return to Group Reading after Half Term .Children may change groups following the outcome of these assessments but we will endeavour to keep our spellings going alongside.
In maths we have been comparing number values and using the symbols < > = to show greater than , less than and equal to. We have been playing the maths game 'Alligator' (softschools website) which allows the children to choose the correct greater than number .If you complete the easy level then there is an option to go on to higher numbers.
Thank you for your support this Half Term and we hope you have a safe and enjoyable week off.
