Week beginning 7th January 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely holiday and look forward to welcoming the children back to school.

The Week Ahead

In Literacy, we will be reading Traction Man by Mini Grey. We will use adjectives to describe Traction Man’s feelings and emotions. Later in the week, we will be using ‘er’ and ‘est’ suffixes to compare Traction Man to other superheroes.

In Maths, we will be learning about addition and subtraction. We will be adding by counting on and also finding and making number bonds. The children will have the opportunity to carry out problem solving and reasoning tasks related to addition and subtraction.

In IPC we will start our new topic, ‘The Magic Toymaker’. This topic will have a History, and Design Technology focus. Next week we will compare and describe some of the similarities and differences between toys from the past and present.

Thank you for your continued support.
