This week in Dexter Class

It was really lovely to catch up last week and discuss progress and next steps at Parents Evening. Please remember that you can look at our blog, the website and Tapestry to keep up with all the happenings in Dexter Class. When your child gives you a blank look or the answer of 'nothing' at the end of the day, this can be a great way to start a conversation about some of the things that they have really been up to!

World Book Day comes to Amberley School on Wednesday this week. We are all very excited to meet author Christian Darkin and take part in a workshop with him. We will also be reading and discussing our favourite books. Please remember that children can bring their favourite book, come dressed in their PJs or as their most loved book character. Teachers will be joining in and rumour has it we have to be on the look out for Wally, Miss Trunchbull, Burglar Bill and some other interesting characters throughout the school!

We will be continuing with our learning around the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk and this will include retelling it in writing, reading sentences taken from the book, comprehension activities and even writing a menu for the Giant.

Our maths mastery journey will be continuing with looking at more and fewer, doubles to 10 and odds and evens. We will be consolidating our learning on number bonds before looking at the counting pattern beyond 10 next term.

Our phonics will be focused on Phase 4 blending and segmenting skills and again we will be consolidating all our learning over the next two weeks.

In expressive art and design this week we will be having a go at some Papier Mache as well as role playing some of our favourite stories and composing a piece of music to go with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk using percussion instruments. Understanding of the world will be looking at the growth cycle as our thoughts have now turned to growing some potatoes and beans as the weather improves- a bit!

Finally, it is 'crazy hair day' in aid of Comic Relief on Friday, so if you would like your child to take part - forget the hairbrush, go mad with the accessories and let your child sport their crowning glory however they choose!
