Week 2

We can’t believe it’s only two weeks into term. Thank you so much for all your kind donations towards the home-clothes day, raising money for the Year 5 project on our playgrounds!

This week:

In maths we have been learning about the inverse, making the links between addition and subtraction. We are as always using our manipulatives to help us for example:

In English we have been learning how to ask questions, we have linked this to our work on the Jolly Postman. The children wrote questions that they’d like to ask the Jolly Postman, and on Friday they wrote postcards, like the one that Jack wrote to the Giant in the story.

In topic/science we have looked at the houses linked to the Jolly Postman and thought about the different materials that they were made from. Next week we will be looking into materials more closely!

The children loved the firework pictures they completed on the laptops  – they will be on display outside our classrooms, so keep an eye out for them when you are next in school. Here is one example from each class:

Next week we are going to have some visits from parents to talk to us about their jobs, this links to the children’s topic ‘A Day in the Life’ we can’t wait to find out about some of the jobs, and if you feel you can come in and talk to the children about what you do please contact Miss Common (scommon@st-nicholas-newromney.kent.sch.uk) – the more the merrier.

Don’t forget that Tuesday is -odd socks day as part of anti-bullying week, and on Friday we will be wearing our own clothes to raise money for Children in Need.

Have a great weekend 🙂
