What a brilliant first week back! I have loved hearing all about Oak Class' fun Halloween adventures and all the amazing costumes they dressed up in!
This week in literacy we have been focusing on ensuring we remember how to form our letters correctly in handwriting, about when to use capital letters and full stops and used our sounds to help us spell. We have learned about question marks and exclamation marks as well as learning about turning a singular object into a plural, spelling it correctly.
This week we have continued to focus on our number bonds to 20 and our 10 times tables. We have also continued to look at addition, focusing on adding 2 digit numbers through partitioning into tens and ones. This has allowed us to retrieve our knowledge from when we learned about place value! We then applied our knowledge to problem solving.
This week we have completed a geography lesson on the different countries that make up the UK and their capital cities. We have discussed our previous knowledge of the continents and oceans and used this to help us learn new information and apply it to the skill of map reading using a globe and atlas.
We have also looked at identifying different classifications of animals include mammals, birds, insects, fish, reptiles and amphibians. We looked at some of the pets we might find in our homes and how we can use what we see to help us work out what type of animal they are.
We have also started to look at fitness in P.E. We focused on our warm ups and the importance of these when exercising and discussed how our bodies change when we do exercise.
