English

In English, we have continued with our book The Adventures of the Egg Box Dragon. We read on in our story and discovered that the Queen's crown was missing her diamond! We have had a focus on adjectives this week; what they are and how we can use them to help find the missing diamond. We then used those adjectives to create a lost poster for the diamond. When we read on in the story. The Egg Box Dragon came to help and found the diamond in a magpies nest along with other things! We created adjective word banks to describe the items in the nest. We wonder what will happen in the last part of our story?
We have continued with handwriting and reading and spelling common exception words to help with our fluency. The children in 1B beat the teacher with their spellings of CEWs twice this week! 

In phonics we are revising previous learnt sounds and learning new sounds. This will aid reading and we appreciate you reading with your child. Remember Active Learn is a great site to encourage reading and build comprehension skills. 

Maths

During our Maths lessons we have been ordering objects and numbers. We used language such as greatest and smallest, discussed which groups had more or less and put them in order (greatest to smallest or smallest to greatest). We deepened our understanding by solving problems and explaining our answers. 

We have also been busy with Dance, History, Art and History. Children have loved learning dances with the dance teacher! I wonder if any have shown you at home? In Art we continued building our sketching skills and looked closely at a piece of William Morris wallpaper. We then sketched part of it. In History we discussed the changes that happened during Victorian Britain.
