  • PE and swimming are a core part of our curriculum. All children should take part unless they have a note from a doctor or a parent to excuse them. When children are not taking part, we ask that they still bring their PE kit as we can adapt the lesson for them.  We can often include them in the lesson as a coach, a referee or to give feedback to others. If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.

In Literacy we will be completing our unit of work on diary writing. The children will use the book Wild Child by Chris Wormell as their inspiration. Once they have become familiar with the sequence of the story they will act it out with with a partner and film each other's performance. At the end of the week the children will draft their diaries and then work with their partner to peer mark their work and think of improvements for their final piece.


In Maths, the children will be working on using addition and subtraction with numbers up to 100 . The children will begin the week by using a number square to add and subtract ten from any given number to 100. Once the children have mastered this they will begin to learn how to add and subtract 11 by adjusting by one.


This week the children will continue their exploration into the life and work of Laslo Hudec. While finding out about his  life and buildings they will learn how to make a map with symbols and grid references as  they plot the buildings he designed on a map of Shanghai. Following this, the children will design a map of their own city and create their own symbols.


The children will be focusing on expressing their ideas, opinions and views with confidence.


Literacy – past tense, personal pronouns – I, we, me, next, then, after that, finally

Maths –number, calculation, addition, plus, althogether, total, add, subtraction, subtract, minus, take away, left over, difference

Humanities – symbols, map, grid references, key, phyical features, human features.


Om een spel te spelen hebben we spelregels nodig!  We hebben de voorbije  week verschillende spelregels en instructies bekeken.  Op speldozen vonden we pictogrammen en we gingen op  pictogrammenzoektocht in de school.  Volgende week stellen we  zelf spelafspraken en regels op.

Juf Cindy vond een spelfout in het ophangbord van ons  Letterwinkeltje.  We zullen de eind –nk aanpakken tijdens onze dagelijkse spellingsquiz.

Elke dinsdag gaan we met de Nederlandse klas naar de bibliotheek.  De uitgeleende boeken kunnen een week gehouden worden.  Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.
