16th September 2016

English

This week the children have been learning about instructions. They have read and followed instructions to make a jam sandwich and then used these instructions to identify their different features. They then went on to use these features to write their own set of instructions about how to make a jam sandwich. The children also put their learning about lists, labels and captions from last week into practice when recording and writing about the equipment and ingredients they would need.

Maths

In Maths this week the children have been reinforcing their understanding of two numbers that make one total. They have been working through number bonds to 10 and 20 and extending to find missing numbers in number problems.

Project Work

We have had a busy week learning songs, lines and actions in preparation for our Hari Raya Haji assembly. We will resume our Project work next week.

Mandarin

This week, the students celebrated the Mid-Autumn festival. They engaged in various hands-on related activities to further heighten their awareness of this cultural celebration, such as designing a moon cake, literature response, poem recitation, singing songs, lantern making and listening to stories about the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration. 

Please watch out for the new topic which will be introduced next week.

Computing

After the mouse practice last week it was time for some keyboard practice this week. The children have been using a variety of games on www.ABCya.com to help them learn where the keys are on the keyboard. Finding and matching the letters on the keyboard will incorporate work that pupils have done in lessons on letters of the alphabet.

Physical Education

In PE this week the children have been learning to display improved hand and eye coordination when receiving and travelling with a ball. In Swimming, the children have been practising and learning the correct front crawl kicking technique using a kickboard to develop their leg strength and body position.

Music

In Music this week the children have been exploring pitch (melody). They have studied Bach’s Bourree from the Cello Suite Number 3 and have started to learn the notes and sing the first theme. They learned this in the form of a question: 

Q Did you know J.S. Bach composed this bourree? 

A Yes I did, actually is from the Cello Suites.

Homework

The children have now joined focused phonics and spelling groups this week. The children will receive spelling walls to practise over the half term. In addition, they will have their regular spellings in their journal. Spelling walls are an informal way for the children to practise common words, which cannot be sounded out. These differ from the weekly spellings issued in spelling journals which are taught throughout the week.
