It has been so lovely to be back with all of you and exciting to start our new topic…Journeys! Talk to your adult about some of the journeys you have been on; what different describing words can you use to describe your journey?
Was your journey long? Short? Of medium length?
How did you travel?
Did you enjoy the way you traveled? (on foot/bus/train/car/aeroplane/bicycle/scooter etc.)
What are the most environmentally friendly ways to travel?
Can you describe some of the things you saw on your journey?
In maths this week we have started to learn about money which is quite a challenging maths topic. If you have the opportunity to go shopping with your adults, especially for smaller items like fruit and vegetables, ask them about how much these things cost and talk about the coins you would use to pay for them.
You could also set up your very own shop at home and ask your family to come to your shop where you price the items as amounts such as 1p, 2p, 3p, 5p, 10, 12p, 15p and 20p. Happy shopping 🙂
Next week we start the Pirates part of our Journeys topic which I know we are all very excited about!
Here is our pirates playlist:
What do you already know about pirates?
Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework, Mathletics and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
It will be Red Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦
We are still having too many toys brought to school and I will be confiscating them and only handing back to adults at the end of the day. Tennis balls are allowed for break times.
Homework is due in on Mondays. Every two weeks the maths homework will be set via Mathletics (not in the blue folders) so make sure to check it this week!
Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them.
On Thursday it is World Book Day. Children are encouraged to come in dressed as their favourite book characters and it would be lovely if adults could join us for story sharing time at the beginning of the day (9-9.30).
I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! 🙂
