Welcome back to the second half of Spring term! We hope you all had a relaxing half term- we've heard about lots of the exciting things you all got up to.
In Math this week we have been recapping on halves (sharing into two equal parts/amounts) and quartering (sharing into four equals parts/amounts) shapes and have begun to halve and quarter groups of objects. The children used plates which had been split up into halves and quarters and worked in partners to share objects equally before recording in their maths books.
As part of your home learning you could use playdoh to make shapes and cut them into different fractions; share sweets and food equally into halves and quarters; have a teddy bears picnic and share the food between two or four bears!
In English we have been reading the traditional tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children received a letter from the Three Bears to tell them how upset they were with Goldilocks so the children all had a go at writing a reply. We were really impressed with their ideas on how to cheer up baby bear and ways of saying sorry.
We are still carrying on with dance on a Tuesday however the theme for this half term is animals.
In topic we are continuing our space theme!
Next week we will be doing a quick phonics check to see how the children are getting on so we may not be able to read with each child- please remember you are welcome to come in and change their books before and after school.
