We started the week with the children reciting the scots poem 'The Sair Finger' by Water Wingate. The children were all very good at reciting the poem and it was a very difficult to choose only three finalists.
In maths we continued to develop our subtraction strategies with subtracting 2-digit numbers for example 17-11.
In writing the children were using the openers first, next, then and finally to write instructions for the bird feeders. The children are all very excited to bring one of the bird feeders home. Please remember to chill your bird feeder before you hang it out for the Big Garden Bird Watch this weekend. In your child's homework bag is a sheet to fill in on what birds you see in your garden.
Our phonics this week was the 'll' sound and the children were able to come up with lots of different words with the sound. In reading we completed a cloze passage about Chinese New Year. The children were very good at reading the sentences and finding the missing words from the word bank.
Next week our social target is about the importance of wearing school uniform. It would be very helpful if all the children could wear a shirt and tie on Thursday for our trip to the music festival. If you wish to watch your child perform, tickets are available at the door of the Carnegie Hall on the day.
The children are starting to use Seesaw, it a great way for your child to share their learning with you. Please find letters in the homework bag on how to access Seesaw. Please can you return the consent slip on Monday.
The weather is looking good for Wednesday so 'Wellie Wednesday' will go ahead. Please send your child in their warm clothing with their wellies to change into. We will be looking at birds so please send them with their binoculars if they have any.
Have nice weekend!
