Name some of the places we visited on our walk and what people might go there for.
Abacus - The children can access this resource via the website and complete one game as their Mathematics homework. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
The children have their own log in details, these can be found in their reading diaries. The school code is kmm7 in the bottom box.
Spellings - On Monday the children will be coming home with 5 new spellings to learn. These will be sent home in a handwriting/spelling book so that they can practise at home daily - we hope this will support them in learning to spell the first 100 high frequency words, as well as practise their cursive handwriting. Please return these every Monday so that we can put new spellings in each week. There will be a spelling menu stuck in the front of this book, to give you some ideas of exciting ways to practise learning your spellings at home.
Please make sure you read at least three times a week and this is then recorded in the reading record book.
Thank you for all of your donations for Children in Need, everyone looks fantastic!
Within Mathematics, we have ended our topic of addition with some word problems that we all did very well in. We have now moved onto subtraction and we have used the method of crossing out the part that’s taken away.
In English, we have written a whole class poem about mud that linked with our poetry text ‘Out and about’. We have all written a recount of our walk around the village.
During Global learning, we had a very exciting walk around the village to find all of the communal areas around Buckden and identified there uses.
In Science, we have looked at rocks, foil, fabric and glass and looked at the properties of these materials.
