Weekly Update - 16th January 2020

Miss Oates - 16 Jan 2020

This week in Oak class the children have been super at showing me how indepenednet they are with their new routines. I am particularly impressed with how much respect they are showing for their classroom and their belongings and how well organised they are keeping it. 

We received a book this week that was all wrapped up apart from a few small tears...it was really exciting and got us making great predictions about what it could be. We have now opened the book and begun reading it. We have found out that some of our predictions were correct and some were not. We haven't read the whole book but instead are thinking deeply and carefully about the characters and their decisions. I wonder what will happen next in the story? What decision will the animals make about 'the strange white creature' that arrived on the shore.

We have delved into our 'Explorers' topic by beginning to learn about Christopher Columbus. We have used videos, books and the internet to help us learn more! Matthew has had a great idea that we should make a whole book about all the explorers we learn about and Leo thought we should design it so there is a page for each explorer - great ideas boys! I wonder who else we might like to put in our book? Can you think of anyone at home? 

In maths we have been looking at how we can manipulate numbers and have been using part-part-whole models and bar models. Both these can be quite tricky concepts and we will be looking at them and using them more as we journey through our different areas of learning. The children were great today in showing me how they can work independently on maths tasks and then coming back together to share our work and check for errors. 

All the children are showing great effort with their reading in class. We have tried some 'performance reading' of our book 'Leaf' and they are all working hard with their phonics in their scheme books. Reading is so important for our learning development and the best way to keep improving is to read lots and lots and lots! We are all aiming for reading 5 times per week minimum. If your child reads at home, please record it in their yellow reading record - the children have promised to help by bringing the book and pen to you. We look at these after reading buddies and discuss as a class how we are getting on - some people had some great tips for reading such as reading before school. How many times can you read this week? 

Please come and join us at 9am tomorrow in the shcool hall for our celebration assembly. We are changing the format of this assembly and the children will be telling you all about it tomorrow - we can't wait to share it with you! 

Quick messages:
  • Please can the children leave their PE kits at school for the whole half term. We don't get mucky enough in PE to need to wash them every week - if there is a need, we will send them home. We will send the full kit home at the end of the half term. 
  • Please remember to let Mrs Buggy or myself know if there are alternative arrangements for picking up, when you drop off on a morning. 
  • Remember forest school tomorrow in your school uniform but bring warm layers!
