In History, Peach class learned about the Great Fire of London and enjoyed discovering why the fire spread so fast and looking at the differences between living in the past and the present. In Science we will be exploring how to make straw stronger and will be focusing on fair tests when experimenting.
The class enjoyed showing parent and grandparent visitors what they had learnt about keeping safe online on 9th February and we were pleased to have so many adults able to visit our classroom. The children are looking forward to sharing stories they have written and celebrating music and artwork they have created in our ‘Stories People Tell’ morning on Friday 23rd February.
Peach class love reading and some children are moving up levels with their home reading books whilst others are concentrating on their comprehension skills and learning to read faster and more fluently – with ‘story telling voices.’ Please continue to sign your child’s reading record whenever you hear them read, thank you!
Homework will continue to go home with Peach class every Friday – to be returned to school by the following Thursday. The children really enjoy showing their friends their homework books and sharing their super ideas.
Here are some links to phonics games that you might like to play at home:
Beat That Maths sheets will also continue to be sent home with your child on Fridays – these are for you to keep and to see where you child needs a little additional support in their maths.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you would like some ideas on how to support your child’s learning.
