Here are five things to ask your child about this week:
1) What have you been learning with Mrs Walker?
2) What is our topic this term?
3) What did you do in Team-Build Tuesday?
4) What sound are you learning this week?
5) What mental strategies can you use to add and subtract 2-digit numbers?
In Literacy we have enjoyed starting our poetry anthology which we add to every week. We made pop-up books about Roman buildings which we put lots of hard work into and enjoyed showing our adults at the Meet the Teacher event in September. We entered the Young Writers poetry competition and look forward to seeing some of our work in a published book!
In maths we have learned about place value and addition. We have been thinking about ordering numbers and mental strategies for addition.
Our topic this term was the Romans. We had a Roman soldier visit our school and teach us about life in the army. We got to try on different elements of a solider's uniform and practise formations in the playground.
