on Friday’s we will be using oil pastels and paint during our Art lessons. If possible please could you provide your child with an apron or an old adult sized t shirt/shirt that you don’t mind getting messy. Thank you.
Spellings (to be tested on 25/09/2020)
What have Mulberry class been learning about this week?
This week we have carried on working on our understanding of numbers up to 1000, we had a practical maths lesson outside this week where we had to order numbers between 500 and 700; this was quite a challenge but we preserved and eventually worked well as a team! This week in English we have produced some amazing letters in character as Hannah. We will be finishing our current class text Gorilla in the coming week and then we will be moving on to a new text.
We have continued practising our striking and fielding in PE this week with Mrs Barratt and we are getting better each week at controlling the ball and watching the ball. This week in History we continued our learning about the Stone Age and focussed our lesson this week on Hunter Gatherers and how our life now is so different to the tough times in the Stone Age. Aren’t we lucky that we can just pop to a shop?!
We have enjoyed lots of outdoor time this week whilst we have had super weather, most children are remembering their water bottles which is great, thank you.
Have a lovely weekend,

Thursday 10th September
Today your child was sent home with two scheme reading books or a Free Reader book out of our class book corner.
The scheme reading books need to be returned to school on Thursday the 17th September please. We will then not issue any reading books for the following week and your child can access reading material on Bug Club for the following week,
please let me know if you do not have access to Bug Club at home. This is due to books needing to be quarantined.
Children with Free Reader books may keep their book beyond the 17th of September and can bring these back into school when they have finished reading it. They will then be asked to write a book review for the class book corner.
What have Mulberry Class been learning about this week (10.09.2020)?
Mulberry class have settled back into school life really well, I’m really pleased with all the perseverance that they have shown. Well done!
This week in Maths we have been focussing on place value and numbers up to 1,000. We have been looking at how to write numbers both numerically and using words. We have been partitioning numbers into hundreds, tens and ones and have been representing these with Base Ten equipment and Place Value Counters. Please continue to use Mathletics to further your child’s understanding of what we are learning in class.
In English we have been looking at the book Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We have really enjoyed reading this book so far and are excited to find out what happens and if Hannah’s gorilla comes to life! We enjoyed doing role play this week we acted out one of the scenes from the book when Hannah was having breakfast with her Dad.
