Delaunay Class Newsletter – Friday 23rd February 2018
In English this week we have begun our topic on fairytales by reading Jack and the Beanstalk. We have been discussing how fairy tales have been told for many years and so there are many different versions of the same story . We have been reading and listening to some of these, acting out the story and using exclamation marks to write our own versions of the giant’s rhyme “Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an English man!”
Our sounds of the week are tion (celebration) and ious (delicious) and our words of the week are where, who, what, why.
In maths we have been investigating family number facts using addition and subtraction eg: 12 = 7= 19
7 + 12 =19
19- 12= 7
19- 7= 12
We have also been measuring and comparing length and height.
We finished out topic on weather and the seasons by exploring how rainbows are made and using lights and prisms to create our own rainbows in the classroom.
We still need 2 parent helpers for our trip to the library on Tuesday 27th February at 1pm. Please let us know if you are able to help.
Don’t forget to dress up as a character from a fairytale on Thursday 1st March for World Book Day.
Our new home corner is a castle. Please can you bring in any dressing up items or objects for this area.
Look around your home and measure the length of different objects using a ruler. Have a go at estimating the length first. Which is the longest/shortest object?
Have a lovely weekend
