    Name different objects around your house, their properties and why are made that way. (A window is made of glass as its transparent so you can see through it).

    Abacus - The children can access this resource via the website and complete one game as their Mathematics homework. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk 

    The children have their own log in details, these can be found in their reading diaries. The school code is kmm7 in the bottom box.

    Reading

    Please make sure you read at least three times a week and this is then recorded in the reading record book.

    Within Mathematics, we have used our subitizing skills in our Arithmetic lessons and using our subtraction knowledge to find the missing part.

    In English, we have started our new book, The Jolly Christmas Postman. So far we have story mapped the postman visiting the Three Bears Cottage. We have written some fantastic reason why Baby Bear should or should not forgive Goldilocks.

    During Global learning, we have compared past and present photographs of Buckden Village and noticed lots of changes, as well some photographs being in black and white. We have completed a traffic survey and we found out that cars were the most popular mode of transport in Buckden.

    In Science, we have tested some materials and found out about their properties.

    Name some of the places we visited on our walk and what people might go there for.

    Abacus - The children can access this resource via the website and complete one game as their Mathematics homework. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk 

    The children have their own log in details, these can be found in their reading diaries. The school code is kmm7 in the bottom box.

    Spellings - On Monday the children will be coming home with 5 new spellings to learn. These will be sent home in a handwriting/spelling book so that they can practise at home daily - we hope this will support them in learning to spell the first 100 high frequency words, as well as practise their cursive handwriting. Please return these every Monday so that we can put new spellings in each week. There will be a spelling menu stuck in the front of this book, to give you some ideas of exciting ways to practise learning your spellings at home.

    Reading

    Please make sure you read at least three times a week and this is then recorded in the reading record book.

    Thank you for all of your donations for Children in Need, everyone looks fantastic! 

    Within Mathematics, we have ended our topic of addition with some word problems that we all did very well in. We have now moved onto subtraction and we have used the method of crossing out the part that’s taken away.

    In English, we have written a whole class poem about mud that linked with our poetry text ‘Out and about’. We have all written a recount of our walk around the village.

    During Global learning, we had a very exciting walk around the village to find all of the communal areas around Buckden and identified there uses.

    In Science, we have looked at rocks, foil, fabric and glass and looked at the properties of these materials.

    “I liked doing Science and Maths.” (Harry).

    “I have enjoyed Phonics.” (Margot).

    “I have enjoyed doing my spellings.” (Matilda. M).

    “I have like Phoincs.” (Matylda. K).

    Reading

    Please make sure you read at least three times a week and this is then recorded in the reading record book.

    Within Mathematics, we have had an amazing time outside knocking down ten stacking cups and writing the addition calculations (see the photos).

    In English, we explored sand, water and mud outside and used our speaking and listening skills, discussing our memories of times we have played with these malleable materials. This links to our poems ‘Marlarks, Seaside and Water’ in our poetry book.

    During Global learning we have used our map work skills and identified all of the communal areas of Buckden, like the Village hall and the church.

    In Science, we have identified everyday objects and the materials they are made of. We sorted these into a Venn diagram (please see the photos).

    “I have liked colouring in and doing handwriting practice about Remembrance day.” (Edmund).

    “I liked colouring the poppies too.” (Arthur).

    “I liked knocking down the cups in Maths.” (Jimmy).

    “I have enjoyed doing the tracing.” (Archer).

    Reading

    Please make sure you read at least three times a week and this is then recorded in the reading record book.

    Within Mathematics, we have been using our additions skills this week. We have been adding the parts to find the whole and using a number line to count on.

    In English, we have started our new Poetry book ‘Out and about’ By Shirley Hughes. We have created some amazing story concept maps and these helped us to write about what we enjoy when we are out and about.

    Our new Global learning topic is Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure. We have learnt about different types of transport and ways of travel.

    In Science we are learning about Materials and we have identified what some everyday objects are made of.

    “I have enjoyed doing Maths, I liked using the numberlines.” (Harper).

    “I liked doing Science and materials.” (Sebastian).

    “I liked doing the part, part, whole.” (Ava).

    “I have enjoyed doing RE about good deeds.” (Harry).

    Reading

    Please see the letter regarding reading expectations in the front of your child’s reading diary. Please ensure your child has their reading folder in school everyday.

    Within Mathematics, we have continued our learning journey about part, part, whole models and used our number facts to solve calculations.

    In English, we have used question marks when writing questions to ask Beegu. We found out that she likes Spaghetti Bolognese and carrots. Also, that she is lonely as she can’t find her family.

    Within RE, we have had some great discussions, discussing the ‘Big Freeze’ illustrations that represented the parts of the Creation story.

    We have finished our class reader, The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me, by Roald Dahl and loved the ending.

     

    During our Global learning lesson, we have completed some art work, using areas of the school and produced some textured rubbings of bricks, the playground and the fence.

     

    “I have enjoyed doing Maths and using my facts.” (Margot).

    “I liked doing the building rubbings.” (Harry).

    “I liked doing Phonics.” (Orla).

    “I have enjoyed doing the Beegu spellings.” (Archer).

    Within Mathematics, we have had an amazing week of WOW moments, showing our understanding of greater than, less than and equal to, to compare amounts of objects and numbers. Well done everyone!

    In English we have read some more of our Power of Reading book ‘Beegu’ By Alexis Deacon. We have used pastels to design what we think her home planet looks like. We have been focusing on our new spelling rule and our progress in using cursive script (joined up writing), in EVERY piece of writing we do, is fabulous! Keep it up!

    During computing we have learnt how to take a photograph using an ipad and a digital camera. We linked this to our Global learning goal (Quality Education) and took pictures of places around the school and parts of the building.

    Within RE we have read ‘In the Beginning’ By Steve Turner and created a class creation poem.

    “I have enjoyed PE this week, learning different types of rolls and doing the walk.” (Harry).

    “I had fun writing sentences using my spellings, I wrote Jimmy is a king.” (Jimmy).

    “I liked writing my Beegu sentences about how she feels.” (Matilda. M).

    “I have enjoyed writing and joining my letters up.” (Ava).
