Week ending 26th January 2018

This week in Fistral class we have been working incredibly hard in all areas of the curriculum. In PSHE we recognised what we are already good at and what it takes to get better at something. We have been using the words perseverance and resilience to remind ourselves that things aren't always easy. 
We have discussed friendships and how we treat people, reminding ourselves that we don't always have to get on with everyone but we do still need to be kind. As a class we are particularly focussing our efforts on the playground where we are working on sharing, being kind and avoiding rough play, which can leave others hurt or upset. It would be great if you could reiterate this message at home. 
 
In Literacy we have been writing our own versions of 'How to hide a lion at school'. We have been using prepositions, subordinating words and coordinating words to enhance our writing. In order to develop our reading comprehension skills we have been working through some texts and working out how to answer them as a class. We made sure we referred back to the text and explained our answers in order to show our understanding. 
 
In Maths we have been exploring the relationship between multiplication and division. We have been writing related facts and solving problems. Our maths talk and reasoning is really improving and there is an air of confidence from all pupils when they are answering questions. 
 
In PE, we have been learning how to do assisted handstands and our work on perseverance and resilience really had to kick in! We had lots of fun and played a game of sleeping lions at the end to soothe our aching muscles. 
 
This week's homework is maths and reflects what we have been learning this week. Quickfire 30 tests were completed on Tuesday so you now have 2 weeks to practise before the next test. 
 
Thank you for all the baby photos you provided for our class display, we have had great fun trying to guess who is who (with very limited success I might add!)
