21st – 25th May 2018
Dear Parents / Carers
Rules: During the coming week the children will think about forgiveness and saying sorry to those they upset. It is linked to Mathew’s Gospel where Jesus says “We must forgive others not just seven times, but seventy times seven.”
Can you discuss some of your family’s rules – what they are, why you have them, and how they help everyone in the home.
The children have really enjoyed this topic, and have learned so many facts about our Solar System, and written some wonderful stories and poems, too.
Next week we will be working on making books about Space, and creating a glossary and writing a book blurb.
At Home learning:
Pages 92 and 9, which looks at adding question marks (?) and exclamation marks (!) to sentences.
One way to help the children to think if is a question is that an answer is expected.
The exclamation mark makes sentences sound more excited.
We will be looking at recapping mixed calculations (e.g. 3 + 7 – 5; 28 + 31 – 15),
and those with missing numbers (e.g. 20 + = 29; + 7 = 19)
Pages 104 and 105. This is concerned with putting information into tables, and reading information from tables.
On Wednesday we are off to Aylesford Priory. We will be singing at a beautiful service with the Bishop and hundreds of other children from the Diocese.
