Up, Up and Away!
A fantastic start to the week with a visit from Captain Sanderson who came to tell us all about being a pilot. The children enjoyed the talk and asked lots of interesting questions. They told him about all the places they had visited on a plane and we decided they were a well-travelled class!
We have been talking about airports, passports and essential documents for flying. If you get a chance, please do show your children their passports as they were very excited to learn that they needed a special document to enter another country. If you have any past boarding passes that you’d be happy to share, then we’d love to share them with the class as we have an airport role play for the next couple of weeks.
Further learning this week in maths has focused on sharing an amount between 3, 4 or 5 people etc. We have talked about the concept of fairness and making sure everyone gets the ‘same’ amount. Thank you for photographs on Tapestry of halving with food; great to see the learning continuing at home in real life situations!
In writing we continue to focus on writing simple sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
We have continued to run laps of the playground to take part in the whole school running challenge and filled in a traffic survey about how we travel to school.
Phonics this week continues a journey through the vowel digraphs – the trickier ones that require much over-learning at this stage to fully embed them. See if you can spot these in books this week: oy (toy for a boy), oi (spoil the boy) and ea (cup of tea)
Have a lovely weekend together,
Miss Lever and Miss Harper
