SUMMER TERM UPDATE
The children are really enjoying our 'Treasure' topic. We have been on a treasure hunt and made treasure maps. We have made parrots and fish which have helped to make the classroom look very colourful! We will be learning all about directions and how to lead each other across our own islands this week. We have started to look at different materials and will be using what we know about their properties to help us with designing a waterproof pirate loot bag and a boat that floats.
We are enjoying our class book, Five on a Treasure Island and are excited to see what happens when the Famous Five explore the wreck. We have written poems about a stormy sea which we are entering into a national competition for young writers. I am really proud of all the children's poems which were planned and edited last week. All the children will receive a bookmark and sticker for taking part. I will update you on any winners once the competition has been judged. This week we will be pretending we are part of a pirate crew, learning about the features of a pirate ship. We will also be thinking about treasure and what that could be.
In maths this term we have been using our number bonds to 10 and multiplication facts to help us with addition an subtraction problems. We will be revisited months of the year and looking at analogue and digital time.
As the weather gets warmer(fingers crossed) please make sure that your child has a sunhat and has sun cream applied before they come to school.
