This week in Dexter Class
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a peaceful break and were able to make the most of the glorious weather.
Although this term is a short one, it is action packed and we are looking forward to the learning opportunities we have planned.
This week in phonics, we will be developing our knowledge and application of sounds by reading and writing words which combine more sounds, and will be trying to increase the speed of our recall of high frequency and tricky words.
In maths, we will be looking at taking away and will be using objects, images and number lines to count backwards. We will also be developing our understanding of capacity with water outside and dried rice and lentils inside, during the children's own learning time.
The most exciting addition to our class this week is definitely the new wood work area. Many children have already set to work planning what they would like to make and all have shown a good understanding of the necessary safety precautions and rules. We will share some pictures of the children's creations on the class web page soon. If you have any small retractable tape measures that you might be able to donate, we would be most grateful.
