Thursday 6th December
This week in Literacy we have been learning about fronted adverbials! This is when words or phrases are placed at the beginning of a sentence to describe the action that follows. For example, 'As fast as he could, the rabbit hopped'. Or 'Before the sun came up, he ate his breakfast'. Ask your child to talk to you about how they have used fronted adverbials in their writing. In Numeracy we have been talking about money. Today we subtracted 50p from different amounts of money. Some children completed questions like £3.37 - 50p = mentally, whilst others made notes in their maths books or made use of mathematical resources or coins to help solve the questions. Well done Badgers!
In a few weeks, the children in Badgers will be using kitchen rolls for a practical science activity. Please can you start to collect kitchen rolls (not toilet rolls) and send them into school when you can. Many thanks, Miss Brown.
Record Breakers event
As you may have seen on the school calendar, parents, grandparents and carers of the Badgers children are invited to come into school on Thursday 18th October to join in with our Record Breakers event. Everyone is welcome, please arrive just before 2pm.
Many thanks, Miss Brown
Badgers have had another great week here at Trinity. There has been a lot of opportunities to share to the rest of the class. We have also held our School Council speeches and have chosen four members of the class to move forward into elections on Tuesday.
In numeracy we have been looking at more place value (Hundreds, Tens and Units) and counting in our 4s and 8s. In literacy we have been looking at different types of poems and writing our own. Badgers then had the very brave task of reading it aloud to the class. Everyone did very well and I am proud of all of you. We had our first spelling test this week and every student did a fantastic job. Keep up the great efforts Badgers.
An exciting end to the week with a visiting pantomime and your parents coming to visit your new classroom. Well done Badgers for another great week. You have all worked very hard and I am looking forward to what next week has in store for you!
Keep up the super effort.
Advanced notice! Please can you collect jam jars and their lids and give them to Miss Brown. The Badgers will be doing experiments and will need them later in their term! More detail to follow. Thank you.
Welcome Badgers! What an amazing first week we have had. Everyone has worked very hard indeed. Enjoy a good rest this weekend and feel refreshed for Monday.
This week we started our topic Badgers and had many fun lessons related to them. We have started our numeracy and even written our first story in Literacy!
Our topic continues next week and lots of exciting new learning to accompany it.
