Friday 26th September

Wow, what a busy week we have had! Today we have enjoyed our London art day, more details and photos of the day are below. 

In maths this week we have been using the numicom to calculate the answer to number sentences. We used a variety of strategies to calculate the answer, including counting on, counting in 2s and using our number facts.

This week in Literacy we have been using question words.
We worked in pairs, one of us was Mr Gumpy and the other asked him questions.

Here are some of the questions we asked.
Where do you live?
Where do you keep your boat?
What did you eat at the tea party?
Who was the naughtiest animal on the outing?
When did you go on the outing?

In phonics we have been reading and writing words that contain the ff, ll and ss phonemes and in handwriting we have been practising the correct formation of the letters ‘e’ and ‘f’.

We are sure your children came home tired but full of excitement from our day out in London! First we ate our picnics in the Jubilee Gardens. Then we all enjoyed our flight on the London Eye, when we looked for some of the famous London landmarks we have been learning about. After that we watched the 4D London Eye film and finally we went on a boat ride on the Thames, when we sailed down to the Tower of London and back. All the children were exceptionally well behaved and we were very proud of them. Thank you very much to the parents who accompanied us on the trip, we hope you enjoyed the day and were not too exhausted!






We had a very busy day and were exhausted by the time we came home!

On Art Day we had great fun creating famous London landmarks in a variety of media on a canvas.
We worked on our own individual favourite London landmark and collaboratively  to create a group canvas. Thank you to the parents  who helped in school today. 


After such a busy week we hope you have a relaxing weekend!
