Welcome to Birch Class.
Our class teacher is Mrs Gristwood and we are very lucky to be supported by Mrs Hassam, Mrs Ali, Mrs Patel and Mrs Gelou!
In Numeracy we are going to be focussing on place value, reading and writing numbers up to 100 and beyond and understanding how many tens and ones make a number, comparing them to each other. We also want to make sure the children understand 'WHY' and expect children to explain how they know their answers.
We are also practising counting in 2's, 5's and 10's as we are preparing to learn our timestables. We are working hard to complete our 'timetables mountain'.
In English we are working really hard to ensure we are using good sentence structure using 'high 5 sentences'. We need to make sure that we remember to say our sentence first before adding capital letters, finger spaces and punctuation. We then need to read it to make sure that it makes sense. We have started our topic of 'Fire Fire' and we will be reading stories about dragons, before writing our own story with a different ending. We are also going to be focussing on our reading and comprehension, making sure that we are understanding what we are reading.
This half term our topic is 'Come and Join the Celebration'. We will be learning about bonfire night and Guy Fawkes, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas. We are also learning about how we can celebrate different things.
A quick reminder:
If you have any questions, then please come and speak to us at the beginning or end of the school day. You can also Dojo and we will respond as soon as we can. :)
