Our theme for this next term will be : Carnival

We will be making masks, head dresses, musical instruments, wrist bands and much, much more. Before holding our own Roath Park street carnival.
If you have any ideas, books, artefacts or expertise that you would like to share, please let us know.
This week we are looking at the doubling and halving fact families e.g. Double 7 is 14, therefore half of 14 must be 7 and for those who are ready we will be using partitioning to double larger numbers, e.g. double 22 is 20+20= 40, 2+2= 4, 40+4=44. We are also revising odd and even numbers, especially larger numbers in the 100 square.
We are still practising our Learn It's- Bonds to 10, 20 (100 eg 60+40), halves and doubles to 20 and simple additions, 1 more, 1 less, 10 more, 10 less.
We are assessing the children's reading skills to ensure they are reading texts at the appropriate level and learning how to use an Atlas to locate continents, countries and oceans.
This week we are writing up our bean experiment.
Terrific Tuesday has now become Fantastic Friday but will run the same way every Friday afternoon.
During this session the children are split into 4 groups of 15. One group will go to Forest Farm for the morning and undertake a variety of outdoor activities. The other groups of children will partake in 3 activities which have a messy or creative theme- Each week the children contribute their ideas to Fantastic Friday and we ensure that we use them when planning activities for the sessions. This term we will be painting mini beast pebbles, making and baking biscuits, planting seeds and building dens.
The Independent tasks this week are practising our Nelson spellings and fact families e.g. 6+5=11, 5+6=11, 11-6=5, 11-5=6.
