This Week in Dexter Class
We are so excited to be back in school together this week. Thank you all for your continued efforts at home and your kind words of support. We are tremendously grateful.
This week, we will be continuing our work on ccvc and cvcc words and learning the tricky words: come, some, there and here, in phonics and will be immersing ourselves in fairy tales and traditional tales. We will be reading the books that the children identified as their favourites throughout the week as part of our Book Week celebrations, as well as reading the Zog books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
We will also be learning, belatedly, about Chinese New Year, as we explore the traditions of other cultures and hope to work collaboratively to create a dragon to add to the castle and beanstalk currently in the classroom!
In RE, we will be learning more about Palm Sunday and will be looking at some of the words and symbols Christians use during Holy Week.
In maths, we will be learning to take away 2, with the help of the Numberblocks. We will go on to use Numicon to help us write subtraction sentences.
We will be welly walking on Tuesday morning, so we would be grateful if you could ensure that children have their wellies in school.
