Welcome to Amber Class
Tuesday 8th January
Welcome back to school! We hope you've had fun over the Christmas holidays. This half term we'll be learning about the history of Milford and we'll be taking some walks out and about in the local area. In English, we'll be reading stories with familiar settings (including Mog and The Tiger Who Came to Tea) and writing some animal poems. We'll also be finding out about trees and plants which will tie in well with our walks in the local area.
As always, please feel free to send in anything that relates to our learning. The children love sharing their objects and books from home and everyone enjoys hearing about them. On that note, please can the children bring in a cuddly toy on Friday 11th January. They will be describing their toy in English.

This week in English the children have been learning about diaries. Feel free to encourage your child to write a diary and bring it in to school to share with the class. In lessons next week, we'll be writing diaries.
Maths this week has been about adding! The Year 1s have been adding 1 or 2 more to a number. The Year 2s have been adding multiples of 10 and 11, 12 and 13 to any 2-digit number. Have a go at home if you get chance!
The children are working hard learning their lines for the Christmas play. Well done everyone! The singing is fantastic too
During PE lessons, the children have been practising their balancing skills. Adam, our coach, has been teaching the class to use their eyes and body when using their balance.
Next week the children will continue to write diaries. They'll learn about subtraction in maths and begin to design their London vehicle in topic.
Have a lovely weekend!
It's Anti-bullying Week! The theme of the week is Respect and we are learning all about what it means to be respectful. We're also learning why bullies bully and how we can say STOP!
Here is a clip that the children have watched in class:
Welcome back! Hope you've all had a good half term holiday.
This week in Amber Class we continue to study London. The children will be creating a clay sculpture of a London landmark.
Please continue to read with your child at least 4 times per week. Homework will be given out tomorrow (Wednesday). This half term we've set the usual spellings homework (you'll get the whole half term so you can see what your child will be learning at a glance) and the occasional maths activity to complete.
Commencing Monday 22nd October is AUSTRALIA WEEK across the whole school! We'll be learning about everything Antipodean. Activities will include creating dot paintings, learning facts about the country and hopefully some baking
Please feel free to send in items of interest if you have anything related to Oz!
Homework is handed out on a Wednesday, back in on a Tuesday. Please make sure the homework book (pink book) is in school on Tuesdays, even if the homework isn't completed, so that the new spellings can be stuck in. Homework consists of spellings and reading (daily please - every little helps!).
