Week beginning 22nd June

This week in maths we will be looking at using mental strategies 
 to add or subtract  a one-digit number or a multiple of 10 to or from any two-digit number. We will also be looking at using practical and informal written methods to add and subtract two-digit numbers. Towards the end of the week, we will be focusing on 
recognising and using whole, half and quarter turns, both clockwise and anticlockwise and understanding that a right angle represents a quarter turn.

In English, we will be creating travel brochures to advertise seaside holidays. The children will be working in pairs, on the computer, to complete this task.

For our topic work next week, we will be designing and creating beach huts.

Learning detective task (optional)

This week a new leaning detective task has been set. The key questions is 'How is the seaside different?'
The date for this home learning is the 15th July but it is an optional task. We will not be giving the children extra maths homework anymore. However, they will still be given handwriting practice, times tables practice and spellings for home learning. 

SATs week

Ash class have been AMAZING this week. They have worked really hard and we could not be happier with their results. Thank you for all your help with their home learning. 

Week beginning 15th June
SATs Week
I will not be telling the children about this! We have practiced with tests from previous years and I am confident that this will not upset the children too much! However, I do not want to make too much of a fuss about it. Simply ensure your child is in attendance during this week and is wide awake and ready to go! The tests will be conducted in the mornings. 

Week beginning 8th June

In Literacy the learners will be studying non-fiction with a focus on non-chronological report writing. I will again be looking for adjectives and adverbs to add description; and conjunctions to extend sentences.
In Maths the learners will focus on measures; estimating lengths in metres and measuring in centimetres, measuring weights by interpreting scales correctly; and reading the analogue time (from clock faces) to the nearest five minutes.

Term 6- Week beginning 1st June
'At the seaside'

This week the learners in Ash class will be busy preparing for the end of Key stage 1 SATs.
In Literacy we will be studying 'character description' with a focus on the use of adjectives, adverbs and similes to add description, and conjunctions to extend sentences. With this in mind, I will be looking carefully at super sentences the learners have written for home learning.

In Maths, we will focus on co-ordinates, direction, reflective symmetry, 2D and 3D shapes (names and properties). Learners should be secure in their use of shape vocabulary; sides and corners for 2D shapes; and edges, corners (vertices) and faces for 3D shapes.
