Parent Open Afternoon has changed from Monday 1st July to Monday 8th July, this is due to Active Week

Week ending 28.9.18

This week in Fistral class we have been incredibly busy finishing our story writing and learning about addition. 
 
In Literacy, we have written the final version of our stories trying to include everything we have learnt over the past three weeks such as how to use inverted commas for speech and where to put an apostrophe when we contract a word. Next week we will be writing reports about Nocturnal Animals. Be prepared to be dazzled with amazing facts about a host of different animals!
 
In Maths, we have been adding two digit numbers and ones and then two digit numbers and tens. We have also been looking at word problems, although some of the sums have been simpler it was good to see if we could read understand the language and the information we needed to make our number sentences.
 
We had a great time on Wednesday playing games with natural objects to 20 and 40 and making patterns outside in our outdoor learning area. Will be taking our learning outside at least once a week, using our natural environment to support our learning. 
 
 
Our topic work focussed on creating our own monsters/animals out of burger boxes. We decorated the outside and inside we created their habitat with everything they need to survive! Every child could explain what their creature needed and where they lived. 
 
Swimming was a great success again this week. Please be reassured if your child is feeling nervous, that the teachers at the pool are amazing at reassuring them and the children are making fantastic progress! Everyone left with a huge smile today. 
 
On Monday 8th October we will be heading down to the church for our Harvest Festival. If you are able to come along and help us walk down please let Mrs Blown or myself know. 
 
Thank you to all of you who have returned your trip letters already. Apologies again that the payment option was not available straight away. The office have sent a message explaining this. 
 
Please keep an eye out for a red coat with a fleece lining as it is still missing. We have a number of jumpers and cardigans that are not named. Please write your child's name in them, it makes it much easier to return them.
 
 
Words of the week are: child, children, Christmas, class and climb. Please help us learn them and ask us to put them into context by saying them in a sentence. 
 
Well done to Isla and Xander who were our dojo winners of the week!
