says, some, come, love, your
Challenge Spelling: amphibian
During our seventeenth week in Oak class we continued our Topic of ‘Toads in Trouble’. What have we been up to?
The ARC TRUST came to visit us on Monday. They informed us about different reptiles and amphibians. We focused greatly on The Natterjack Toad AND we got to hold one. We met a Natterjack Toad and a Common Toad and were able to compare their features. We then asked Ralph the questions we had written in English last week (to inform our leaflets). We walked around the school looking for places to build a Toad Pond.
English – We have been focusing on FACTS this week. After our visit from the ARC Trust we had lots of information and facts to process. We began the fact writing for our leaflets. We also recapped adjectives.
At home you could … write your favourite fact about Natterjack Toads – does your sentence include an adjective?
You could also ... find a postcard while you are out and write about your weekend. Thank you to Lucy and Ethan for your postcards.
Mathematics – We have been telling the time! We recapped O’clock and half-past. Some children have begun to focus on quarter past and quarter to.
We have been practising getting changed before the 5-minute timer ends. We love getting changed with this timer playing in the background. Maybe you could practise at home? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTczn5RUgnk
