Our Learning this Week...
This week we have learned about programming Beebots using algorithms and debugging those that don't quite work. As part of our learning, we have had to use positional and directional language including left, right, quarter turn, half turn, three quarter turn, clockwise and anti-clockwise. Check that your child knows their left and right off by heart and can use this language to follow some simple instructions.
In English we have been exploring exclamatory sentences. These begin with the words 'What' or 'How' and end with an exclamation mark. Try to find some in books when reading with your child. The most memorable being in Little Red Riding Hood 'What big teeth you have!' Look out for them and try to use them when you can.
Also, the 'Classwork' folder on Education City has plenty of activities to help support spelling and other areas of the curriculum that the children have been focussing on in the current week.
We feel that this, along with your child's reading books (including Bug Club) and their Maths Passports is more than enough homework for your children once they've had a busy day of learning at school but if you would like any further information on how to support your child please talk to the class teacher and they will be able to help.
