This week in Dexter Class
This week, we will be learning the sounds l/ll, and ss, as well as the tricky words and high frequency words 'of', 'mum', 'dad', 'and', and 'the'.
In maths, we will be continuing our work on pattern and shape and will be looking at the art work of Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials to create patterns. We will be collecting our own natural resources on our welly walk (please ensure your child has waterproofs in school!) and creating our own patterns in a similar style.
Throughout the week we will be talking about why poppies are used as a symbol of remembrance and will learn about the first World War in an age appropriate and sensitive manner. It will be a creative week, as the children will create art work involving fireworks and poppies.
We look forward to seeing you at parents' evening on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss your child's progress.
