Our big question for this half term will be: Could we be Long Eaton travel guides?
Each week we will also be answering the following questions:
Week 1: Where do we live?
Week 2: Where in the United Kingdom is Long Eaton?
Week 3: What do we like and dislike about Long Eaton?
Week 4: Where in Long Eaton is Wally hiding?
Week 5: How do we know the United Kingdom is an island?
Week 6: Where in the United Kingdom has Wally been?
Remember to ask your children about these questions to test their knowledge!
In maths this term, the focus will be Numbers to 10. This unit focuses on children's ability to recognise, represent and manipulate numbers to 10. Children will begin by practising and developing their ability to sort and group objects using different criteria, then move onto counting groups of objects up to 10. Children will learn to recognise and show 10 in different ways to help structure the counting and reasoning.
Mathletics will be given their mathletics password and usernames as they settle into class 3 and they will also be shown how to use the website but feel free to download the app onto your tablets to get a head start!
Please ensure children are reading at home on a regular basis with an adult, it really does make an impact! Make sure you sign your child's reading diaries so we can see how they have read and any sounds they have struggled with so we can support them in school. Miss Whittingham is running a whole class reading challenge where she is counting how many children read at home over the week.
Please see homework books for the children's spellings to practice for our termly spelling bee! Class 3 want to be the winners!!
Thank you for your co-operation :)
Our key spellings for this half term are:
to, of, is, his, be, he, me, she, we, no, go, so, my
Please practise these, we will be testing the children!
