In English this week we have continued our work on Perfect, and the children have done some wonderful reading, looking carefully at the pictures and making inferences about how the characters feel. The children have now started some writing in role as the boy int he story, thinking carefully about how he might feel at this point in the story.
In maths we have continued with learning to tell the time. This is something that you can definitely help with at home. So far we have covered o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to, as well as minutes past in 5 minute increments. Children tend to find it hard that there are a number of ways to describe the same time (e.g. 3:40, 40 minutes past 3, 20 to 4 etc), so discussing this with your child at home and giving them the oportunity to read an analogue clock (if you have one!) would be fantastic.
Cole Class are really enjoying #30dayswild, where we are doing something wild every day in June. So far this week we have listened to the birds, read a nature poem, made our nature table and also picked up litter on the back field. This is all to encourage the children to have an appreciation and understanding of nature and the wonderful lants and animals in our local habitats. I have lots of other activities planned, including setting up a moth trap overnight. You are very welcome to do your own #30dayswild activities over the weekend, if you like! Here's the result of our 5 minute back field litterpick:
On Thursday we had our visit from the Fire Service, to talk about fire, water and road safety. Hopefully your children should have come home eager to test your smoke alarms! I was volunteered to wear the firefighter gear, which was rather warm and heavy, much to the children's amusement.
