Week Beginning 25 April 2016

Saturday 23 April is the annual Garden Party which this year has “a Twist of Shakespeare” as the theme. Again this year, we want to encourage students, teachers and parents to wear a great hat – the more unique the better. Flamboyant, fabulous and even more fantastic if you can link it to the Shakespeare theme! To add some variety we are also adding a new challenge this year. We want you to design your very own shield. You could go for a traditional design, a futuristic one or even one with a Shakespeare theme. Big or small – it is up to you but again we want you to show your imagination and creativity. The show will go on! Come rain, hail or shine, this Saturday’s Garden Party will take place as scheduled from 1pm-4pm. We are well prepared with a wet weather plan so all the fun can continue and you can expect to have a great time regardless of the weather. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday. Get those hats and shields ready and come and join the party!

PHONICS

Puffer Fish- Phase 6- For the next three weeks, the Puffer Fish phonics group will be focusing on the use of suffixes. This week we will focus on adding ‘ed’ and ‘ful’ to the end of words. We will focus on the vocabulary- helpful, cheerful, joyful, forgetful, buzzed, climbed, walked and talked.

Stingray – Beginning Phase 5 - Next week the Stingrays will learn the ‘ph’ sound and compare it to the ‘f’ sound, practicing the spellings dolphin, elephant, phantom and alphabet.  We will also learn the tricky words come and some.

Octopus  - Beginning Phase 4 – Our group we will be looking at more consonant clusters such as sn, pt and scr identifying if they are found at the beginning, middle or end of words. We will listen carefully as we sound them out to spell accurately and begin to read longer words with these sounds in them. We will continue to practise tricky words like little and it’s.

Sharks – Beginning Phase 3 - Sharks this week will be practising the ‘oo’ and ‘oa’ sounds, as in book, cook, coat, boat, oak and foal.                                                                                                                         

MATHS

In Maths next week the children will be learning about place value. We will revisit counting on and back in tens using their fingers and bead strings. The children will develop their knowledge of tens and units using  equipment and draw visual representations for 2 digit numbers. They will then apply this knowledge to solving simple word problems involving tens and units.
