Welcome to Jet Class Blog! 17th November

Our book corner - let's encourage a love of reading :)
Our book corner - let's encourage a love of reading :)

It's been another busy week Jet Class and all the children have been working really hard. We've completed tests this week and have made good progress from September. Our star writer this week is Freddie and our star mathematician is Aldernae. Morgan and Katie won books in the raffle too.

Writing

This week we have been using emotive language in persuasive writing. We looked at some photographs of schools in Uganda and considered what it would be like to attend those schools. We wrote emotive descriptions in order to persuade people to support education in other countries. 

Maths

 

 In Maths this week we have solved missing number problems and word problems. We are learning to recognise which calculations are required in order to solve more complex problems. We are also developing strategies to help us recognise if we have made a mistake in our calculations.

Topic

We have spent some time this week practising for our Carol Concert on Thursday - we are excited to perform to our families. In art we have been learning to use shadows and perspective to our drawings which has enabled us to create some fantastic artwork! On Friday the children were so engaged in their writing about Ugandan schools that they asked if they could write to children there and create some resources for schools in Masindi District. So we wrote letters and have started to make some books for the children to use in class.

 

 

 

PE is on Wednesdays - full indoor and outdoor kit must be in school.

Have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
