Week Beginning Monday 25th September - This week in Leicestershire 1
 

Our children have thoroughly enjoyed exploration time this week with the extension into outdoor learning. We have been looking at capacity using water from out tuff trays and spelling words with the letter pasta!

 

We have continued to read our book ‘The Egg Box Dragon’ and in it the Queen was holding a big tea party. We thought it might be a lovely idea if we could write some invitations to our own tea party. The children all worked so hard and really thought carefully about sounds and how these blend together to make words. Well done Buckinghamshire! I wonder if the Egg Box Dragon will respond to our invitation?

 

In Maths we have continued to deepen our knowledge or greater thanless than and equal to. We also started looking at ordering numbers. Thinking about which number was greater and which number was smaller. We used cubes to help us decide which was greater/smaller and then had a go at writing some number sentences for this. The children really challenged themselves with this. Keep practising which way round those numbers go! Next, we moved onto thinking more about the numberline and where the numbers go along it. Maybe your adults could challenge you by asking questions like ‘What is one less than eight?’ or ‘Which direction will you go to find the greatest number, why?’.

 

In History we have looked at significant life events e.g. a birthday or christening. Our children discussed these, why they are important and when it happened. We were specifically focusing on using words such as ‘past’, ‘years’, ‘months’, ‘ago’ and the use of the past tense. Next week we will be discovering all about the use of a family tree. If you have a family tree at home that you would be happy for your child to share with the class then please do let us know!
