Keeping Up With the Sparrowhawks in September

Date: 23rd Sep 2020 @ 1:15am

A huge well done to all of the Sparrowhawks for settling back into school life so brilliantly!

We're really starting to get into the swing of things.

So far this term we have been exploring the book 'Here We Are', focusing on the natural world around us. The children have enjoyed talking about wildlife and their favourite animals. 

We've been reading and writing every day. At the moment we are working really hard to consolidate our Phase 3 graphemes, as it can be tricky to recognise them within words without picture prompts. We find 'oa', 'oi' and 'ear' especially difficult, so we will be practising these lots.

In Maths, we have been focusing on counting forwards and backwards using the terms 'one more' and 'one less'. We have used lots of different representations to show groups of numbers to compare them.

The children are enjoying tackling the challenges around the classroom in their station time.

Well done Sparrows :)
