Friday Fanfare Spring 4

Hello Red Class,

This morning, there were lots of tigers in my classroom waiting for a tiger tea party. We managed some phonics and number work before Green Class showed us how to dance like tigers! Then we devoured posh finger sandwiches, flapjacks and hot chocolate (we didn’t think tea would go down quite the same). We played pin the tail on the tiger, performed some tiger songs and listened to a tiger story. Then, in the afternoon, Purple Class shared their learning with us too.

In Phonics, we found out about trigraphs (3 letters making 1 sound). You will find ear, air and ure in your phonics book this week. Instead of drawing pictures, please read the words underneath each trigraph. We also introduced ‘some’ and ‘come’. Remember, ‘some’ and ‘come’ are rhyming words.

Letter sounds: ear (hear), air (hair) and ure (sure)

Keywords: some and come

In Maths, we discovered how to read, make and understand 17, 18, 19 and 20. When making 20, the children could tell me that it was made with 20 1s but we could also make it using double 10. Some children wanted to move on even further and created their own complicated sums. We concentrated lots on counting back from 10 and 20 to make our counting back as strong as our counting on.

Next week, we will begin our new topic, “Christianity”. We will explore the story of creation and prepare for our trip to Worcester Cathedral.

Thank you for another super week and enjoy a good rest this weekend my little tigers!

Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain and Mrs Roberts xxx
