We have had a lovely week this week and we have done so much new learning this week! It was also very nice to speak to many of you for the Parent's Evenings this week. If you do have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read below to find out what exciting learning we have been doing this week.
In our Maths learning this week, we have been learning all about subtraction. We have been introduced to the subtraction 'symbol' and we have learnt different words for subtraction such as 'take-away', 'minus' and 'subtract'. We have learnt how to subtract by using first, then and now grids to solve some problem solving subtraction questions. We have also learnt how to create subtraction number sentences by looking at pictures, and how to complete a part-whole model to show the number sentence. We learnt how we can use the crossing out method to subtract.

In our English learning this week, we have been learning a new model text. We have been learning about instructions for how to build a pyramid! We first of all acted out the instructions and then we created story maps of the instructions. Can you read these set of instructions to your grown ups? The model text is attached below if you are struggling!
In our Topic lessons this week, we have unleashed our creativity! We have been learning all about Egyptian art and how Egyptians were so clever that they painted, sculpted, drew, used pottery and even created their own form of glass over 3000 years ago! We also looked at one particular material which is called papyrus. We learnt about how it was made, and then we received a special delivery of papyrus for us to write our names on in hieroglyphics! All our hieroglyphics can be found in our classroom above our display. Here are some pictures below. We thoroughly enjoyed the lesson!
This week, I awarded a SUCCESS certificate and two leaves this week. Congratulations to all those who received an award.
Have a lovely weekend!
