This week in Dexter class, we are delighted to be joined by year 5, with whom we will be spending most of the mornings completing a series of outdoor learning challenges. Hopefully the weather will remain on our side! Please remember to send your children in wearing their welly walking gear (long trousers, sun hats and pre-applied sun cream, please!)
In our phonics sessions, we will be continuing to learn high frequency and tricky words so that we can read them from sight. In maths, we will be looking at doubling, halving and sharing problems and how we can solve them. Part of this will be through inventing new games, where the rules are only that you must use the equipment you have been given, and you must pass it on. Last week's games using dice, cubes and tens frames, were a great success and the children's mathematical thinking and reasoning was wonderful to watch. This week, we will be passing on water and will inevitably end up discussing measurements of volume and capacity.
