This week has been a week full of important learning. From subtraction to fronted adverbials and anti-bullying week to Children in Need. The children have learned many new things and are confident in understanding their importance.
In Maths this week, we rounded off our work on subtraction. The class worked hard to consider how to subtract across zeros, how to solve any form of subtraction problem through varied fluency, applied their learning to reasoning and problem solving questions and became the expert in supporting others in subtraction. All that, is to name just a few of the things we have been up to this week. Next week is assessment week, so the children will be working to show just how much they have retained so far this year, although having seen the fantastic accomplishments they have gone on to achieve so far this year, I have no doubt they will do a fantastic job. Check back to see where our math goes next, following next weeks busy schedule.
In Literacy. we have been concluding our instructions this week, as well as beginning to look at some of the Year 3 and 4 spelling and grammar skills. We have worked hard to develop our understanding of prefixes and how these can change the meaning of a word. We have also explored what 'synonyms' and 'antonyms' are! As mentioned above, next week is assessment week, but be sure to check in and see how we are getting on as the children have a lovely piece of writing to do based around a Christmas diary extract! I really hope it will be a piece of work they will cherish long into the future! :)
This week we have also welcomed Mr Smith to our class. He will be based in Team CB on Thursday and Friday mornings. The class have already made him feel very welcome, and as our Sports Coach he has enjoyed getting to know the children and their talents immensely.
Beyond the core curriculum, across school we have been driving home very important messages this week around Anti-bullying. As it is anti- bullying week, the class have thought carefully around this years theme "Power for Good" and created their own acrostic poems which serve as a reminder for how we can always use our kindness to care for others. The poems are lovely and I cannot wait to see them on display! Today also marks Children In Need campaign day. The class all look simply splendid in PJs or Pudsey clothes in an effort to raise money for children across the UK! Some very important messages that I am sure our children have loved been involved in!
Pop back next week to see how we are getting on in Team CB!
