We all tried something new and loved it!
We learned more about the Jewish festival of Passover this week and learned all about the Seder Plate and the different foods that are eaten to remind them of the story of Moses freeing the Israelites. We even tried some Matzoh bread which reminds them of the bread that the Israelites would have eaten as they escaped Egypt as they didn't have time for their bread to rise!
In English, we started writing our own Pirate non-chronological report, getting all our grammar skills in with powerful adjectives, well-chosen verbs, alliteration, question and exclamation sentences, conjunctions and even a simile! We are almost finished and will plan our own non-chronological report next week!
In Maths, we continued learning about fractions becoming confident with finding a half, quarter and third of a shape or amount. We also learned about unit fractions and non-unit fractions. I wonder if your child can tell you the difference?
We have been practising Sports Day events in our PE lessons in the sunshine and it was great to see some speedy runners! Whilst we won't be having a whole-school Sports Day, we will still compete against each other in our houses by trying to beat the children in our class!
We made a slight improvement on Super Readers this week, with 17 children reading 5 times or more. We have now been set a challenge to beat Year 1 next week who got 24 reads this week! I know we can do it and I have promised an edible treat should we beat them! So get reading!!
I have sent a letter home today about or sponsored walk around the field next Friday to fundraise for UNICEF's Covid-19 Crisis Appeal in India. If you have any questions, please let me know! I can't wait!
Have a lovely (and hopefully dry!) weekend!
