Its hard to believe we’ve into our last half term of the year and the children will soon be going to Y1. It doesn’t seem two minutes since September when we were all just settling in. However, when you look at the children’s learning and realise the progress they have made it is easy to see they are ready for the next step in school.
Our Writer of the Week has really been applying himself to writing recently. He is able to concentrate for longer and consequently write the sentences we are learning in Phase 4 Phonics. I’m sure you can read his sentence here and see where he has written longer words such as camp and tent independently.
Our Mathematician of the Week surprised all the teachers this week in the Maths sessions. He usually stays quiet but this week could tell us all about the coins and was not only able to count the 1p coins but could count the 2p coins and a mixture of both coins as well. This is a hard skill to master but he really showed his confidence and competence with it.
Well done to both boys 🙂
Wow! I can’t believe that it is Week 4 of the half term already. No wonder the children are showing us such amazing learning in all areas of the classroom.
Our Mathematician of the Week got her award this week not just for the great counting she did with the 1p and 2p coins but for her great attitude to learning. She said:
“I was doing this and I found it a little bit hard but when I had a try I didn’t find it hard anymore.”
She really grew in confidence using the Numicon to help her count the coins and work out which ones she needed to make the given total. Well done and don’t forget to help mummy and daddy counting the coins next time you’re at the shops!
Our Writer of the Week this week amazed us all with her writing. Miss Parker knew she could do it but she doesn’t often choose to write so it was a lovely surprise to see she could do it so well. She formed the sentences she wanted to write herself and then was able to write each word listening for the sounds and writing the tricky words she knew. She then had to think really hard to read her writing back to the whole class. Great job!!!
