Hi everyone,

What a lovely first week back we have been having since returning from the Easter break. It has been so nice to welcome the children back into class, with the sun shining almost every day this week!

In Numeracy this week, we have been revising our vertical strategies for addition and subtraction. In Maths, we have started our measurement unit, starting with volume. We know that volume is the amount of liquid. We learned that capacity is the space left over in the container. We know that we measure volume in millilitres and litres and that there are 1000 millilitres in 1 litre. We used some jugs and different sized containers to measure some water in litres and millilitres. Well done everyone.

In reading this week, we have learned about the features of a non-fiction text, focusing more on the contents and index pages and learning about what these are used for. We did some work on connectives and then we made some predictions about what might happen in our new reading books which we will be giving out for the children to take home on Monday.

In Writing this week, we began to look at our new genre which is explanation. We looked at some examples of explanation writing and then used our new targets to mark on what was good and what needed improvement.

Our new topic is all about the garden. We started this week by having a look at what plants need to grow and sorted some things into what they do need and what they do not need. We have also been busy creating our own flowers for our new garden centre which is going to replace the aquarium in the classroom. Look out for some pictures when it is ready!

Some reminders-

Homework will be given out on Monday and will go live on Seesaw after school.

PE days are still a Tuesday (Class teachers) and Thursday (Mrs Ferguson)


We hope you all have a lovely weekend in the sunshine and as always, any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via the school office.

Mr Williamson and Miss Donaldson.
