St Bernadette Week 4
We have been very busy in St Bernadette this week and the children have settled back in to the routine of school. The children enjoyed their Alice in Wonderland dance workshop at the start of the week and were all engaged and joined in well. They wrote a recount of the events in English.
In English this week, the children have continued to learn about non-chronological reports. They have become familiar with a range of sentence types and wrote their innovated foxes report. Next week they will write their final independent piece about an animal of their choice.
In maths, the children have recapped their knowledge of subtraction using number lines, the partitioning method and column method. Our mental maths focus this week has been doubles and halves of numbers to 20. We are going to continue to work on this next week.
In science, the children learned about habitats and why certain animals could live in certain habitats but not others. In RE, the children learned about forgiveness and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. They wrote letters to God explaining when they have had to forgive and why this can sometimes be hard.
The children have been creating beautiful, detailed landscape sketches in art. They are so detailed that they need time to finish them next week and I am looking forward to seeing their finished work.
Please ensure book bags are in school every day so reading books can be changed and diaries signed when your child has read. Please also make a parents consultation appointment if you haven’t already done so. This is a really important opportunity for us to discuss your child’s progress and ways in which you can support them at home.
