Fittleworth C. E. Village School

Fittleworth C. E. Village School


Autumn 2018

w/b 17th September

This week we will be keeping up the good work and working really hard last week. On Monday we will be introduced to a competition for the new village shop which we will have time in class to complete. 

Maths booster sessions will begin this week.

Individual photos will take place on Wednesday.

Literacy: This week we will begin to think about our own mischief monster in terms of work it looks like and what it does! We will plan our own story, maybe you could discuss the story they are planning at home. Encourage them to tell you their plan and maybe develop the ideas together.

We did revise the alphabet last week and a lot of the children needs to practise writing the alphabet in the correct order. Perhaps see if your child can and if maybe practise it. The year 3's will need this to put words in alphabetical order and use it to access a dictionary.

Maths: We will be comparing and ordering numbers this week. This will involve putting numbers of different sizes in the correct order and comparing which are bigger and smaller. They will be adding 10 more and 10 less (Y2) and 100 more and 100 less (Y3)  than a given number.

Last week we were counting in 2, 5, 3 and 10 from any number (y2) and 4, 8, 100 and 50 (Y3) but a lot of your children do do with practising these if possible. 

Topic: The year 3 will begin some research on the stone age way of life and stone age tools. The year 2 will continue to look at Tudor houses and will be finding out about London now and then. 

w/b 10th September

Maple had a good first week and have settled into the swing of it really well! Keep it up! The wrote some information about themselves which is currently on their own t-shirt on the washing line in the corridor by maple classroom!

This Monday is Maple class parents meeting, so please come along and see what is expected of your child in Maple class and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

The year 3 on Wednesday had an e-safety talk.

Literacy: We will be continuing our work on adjectives and will be working on inverted commas (speech marks). This work is part of our work on narrative and will be leading onto us writing a story about a monster who likes to get up to mischief! Let's remember when writing to include capital letters and full stops.

Maths: We are continuing to work on place value. We will be partition numbers into tens and ones/ hundreds, tens and ones e.g 46 = 40 + 6    51 = 40 + 11    We will also be counting in 2, 5, 10 and 3's for year 2 and including 8, 50 and 100 for year 3. At home perhaps you could practice counting in these number sequences.

Topic: We will begin our topic work this week. Year 2 will start to ask questions about the Fire of London and look at Samuel Pepys as a significant individual in history. The year 3's will be asking questions about the stone age and looking at a time line to get a sense of Chronology. 

W/b 3rd September

Welcome back!

Your first day back is on Tuesday 4th September as the staff have an INSET day on the Monday. Our first week back will be to help you all get settled back to school, get to know each other and how it works in Maple class. I have fun topics planned for the term with interesting activities for us to complete. 

You allhave/ will have purple mash logins so please use this at home - to do's will be set and monitored. Please read regularly at home, you will be set a target to try to meet this week. You could practise your times tables at home or your number bonds. 

Literacy: This week we will be writing about our holiday and describing ourselves using adjectives (describing words). We will make sure we haven't forgotten how to write a good sentence with correct punctuation, good letter formation/ joins and interesting vocabulary! I will be checking over the next couple of weeks your spellings so I can see which ones we need to learn.

My monster - year 2

Maths: We will begin the term by working on our numbers and place value. How many ways can you partition (break down) a number say 13? 54? 127? Can you write and read numbers to 20? Do you know what the 5 is worth in 56? Can you place 23 on a number line?
