Maths fluency is really important for children to develop their skills as they expand their knowledge on number.
During spring 1 we had a focus on being fluent in number bonds to 10. To help support your children with this, websites and games such as ‘hit the button’ are fun ways to practise and make maths fun!
During spring 2 we will now be focusing on doubles to 10. Simply sitting in the car on the way to school, modelling doubling facts to your child is a great way for them to learn!
In History and English we have been learning all about Castles and Knights.
This week, the children received a special message from King Lonsdale. He needed the children to write a non fiction booklet about how to become a knight so he could recruit some new workers.
We have learnt about uniform, training & duties, weapons and so much more! The children have thoroughly enjoyed this topic and have great sticky knowledge!
Questions to ask your children:
What are a nights metal gloves called?
What material is a Motte and Bailey castle made from?
How old are you when you are a page, squire and then a knight?
Who won the Battle of Hastings?
In computing this half term we are learning how to give bee bots different commands to move.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed our ‘expressive art’ painting projects. They have learnt that painting isn’t just about using a paintbrush, there are so many other tools too!
We have also enjoyed exploring other artists such as Charlie French and Vincent Van Gogh and using their ideas in our own art work.
