Where has the time gone? We are already at the end of September!
Goldfinch class has had a very busy couple of weeks and here’s a quick flavour of what they have been up to.
Our Big Writing Adventure has taken us to Antarctica where the children have been helping Alan plan his adventure. The focus of their writing has been
writing lists. Within this task the Year 1 children have been investigating nouns and the Year 2 children have been finding out the spelling rule for turning nouns into plurals showing understanding of when to add the suffix s or es.
This week the class have started work on addition. The Year 1s have been exploring the different number bonds (pairs of numbers that make a given number) of 2, 3, 4 and 5. They have been working in the hall and have physically moved each other to create the number bonds for each of those numbers! The Year 2s have been using Numicon to support their learning of number bonds of 10 and 20 and some have been using their understanding to find number bonds to 100.
Macmillan Tea and Cake Afternoon
What a lovely time we had yesterday afternoon. Thank you so much for all of the
lovely cakes you sent in and for coming along and supporting our class. We raised an amazing £169:11! An incredible achievement in such a short space of time! I’m so proud of the children and of all the effort and pride thatthe children took in raising
money for such a worthwhile and important cause.
Just a reminder to say that these are due in on Wednesday 18th October. I’m very much looking forward to looking at them with the children.
Finally I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Kind Regards, Mrs Pearson
