Spring Week 1 w/c 4th January

What a crazy first week back! We hope you are all well and managing in these difficult times. 

This week in English we are learning about the planets and solar system. We have learned the names of the planets and then the order they come in from the sun. We learned the mnemonic My Very Empty Marmalade Jar Sat Upon Nelly! to help us. 

Later this week we will learn about commas in a list and will be writing the planets using them. For Example, The planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

In Maths we have been learning about shapes and patterns. The children learned the names of the 2D shapes Square, Triangle, Rectangle, Circle and 3D shapes, Cube, Cuboid, Pyramid and Sphere. We have used the shapes to make pictures and been hunting for different shapes around us. We have also learned about repeating patterns using different colours and also different shapes.

Please stay safe and we will be in touch shortly about home learning via e-mail but also remember to check the blog regularly. If you need anything or have any questions please contact your class teacher via their e-mail.

Stay safe xxx
