At the end of last term, we wrote letters containing lots of questions we wanted to ask the Queen, hoping that she might reply. We were overjoyed to discover royal post waiting for us in our classroom in the first week back at school! After sharing the letter written by her Lady-in-Waiting and after discussing the fact-sheets inside, we decided to proudly compile a display in readiness for our new history topic this term where we shall be looking more closely at the Queen.
Of course, we couldn’t have such a display without a life-size image of the icon herself.
In our writing across the curriculum, the children have dazzled me with their use of exciting vocabulary and super spelling!
It has been pleasing to see an increasing number of children winning stickers for improvement and even full marks in their weekly spelling tests. Very well done Class Two!
In maths we have been building on our understanding of number bonds to 10, to see how this can help us derive our number bonds to 20 and 100.
If we know that 6 + 4 = 10, then we know that 16 + 4 = 20 and we know that 60 + 40 = 100. We call this MAGIC MATHS in class, and we can spot number patterns more and more easily now. We are moving onto addition and subtraction, including considering their inverse relationship, but we are keen to further embed our ability to recall our number bonds facts, so please feel free to practise the pairs of numbers which add up to 10, 20 and 100 at home.
