This week in Maths, we have been learning to use directional language such as: left, right, anti-clockwise, clockwise, up, down, backwards, forwards, quarter turn, half-turn and three-quarter turn. We enjoyed directing Wally (from Where’s Wally) around a game board. We have also been making our own clocks to help us with the Time work that we are just starting. We’ve been revising O’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past so far.
In spelling, we have been exploring plural rules, such as take off the y then add ies and looking at homophones: know/no; knight / night and knew / new. We have also been writing our own explanation texts explaining the lifecycle of a sunflower.
In Topic, the children were introduced to Pirate Percy!
After losing his memory, Pirate Percy has asked the children to help him remember how to be a pirate. Luckily the children are all very enthusiastic and want to work hard over the next few weeks researching pirate skills and finding out about where Percy might sail to next. We are holding a ‘Pirate Day’ at the end of term to tell Percy all that we have learned.
Explorer of the Week was awarded to Robbie, for sensible attitude and extra hard work this week.
We earned 4 handshakes this week! Well done everyone!
