We have had a lovely week in Squirrels, and it was wonderful to see so many of you on Thursday afternoon.
In English this week, we have had lots of fun leaning to use alliteration. We used pictures from the beautiful book by Graeme Base called ‘Animalia’, to describe the animals and what they were doing. Next week we will start building these words into lines then a whole poem.
In maths, we have been adding and subtracting ones, tens and hundreds to numbers and also using number lines. Next week we will be comparing and ordering numbers.
In our topic work, we had lots of fun looking at local maps to find place names with Saxon and Viking origins. For example, places ending in -ton or -tun are Saxon in origin, meaning farmstead or enclosed village. We found lots of these. Places ending in -by, have the same meaning but are Viking in origin.
The children have been doing well with 2 times tables, so next week we will learn and test 5 times tables. Please look in your child’s reading diary to see what their score was for spelling and times tables in case they need a little more support.
