KS1 Weekly News 6.10.23

We are proud of the progress the children are making so far this half term. Thank you for your support with reading, spellings and homework at home. The children seem INSPIRED, ENJOYING their learning and ACHIEVING.

IHL and 1TS – In English this week we shared the story, Katie in London. Our writing has been linked to the text; we looked at the characters and wrote sentences using an illustration from the story. When your child is writing, please encourage them to use a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence, finger spaces between words and a full stop at the end of the sentence. In maths, we are comparing numbers to 10 using the inequalities symbols < > =. In geography, we have been finding out about the countries in the UK and focussing on England. We looked at the flag, national flower, capital city and other symbols linked to England. We had fun making a red rose and even doing some Morris dancing!

1MG – In English we have been writing a character description about the mum in our story. We have been using adjectives and conjunctions. In maths we have been using inequalities symbols.

If your child has been to a famous landmark in England or to the city of London, feel free to send us a photo that we can share.
