Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 19 Nov 2020

Tiger Travels
This week the Tigers have enjoyed continuing their tour of London, albeit virtually!  This has led to some super postcard writing which you have hopefully been able to see for yourselves by the time you read this!

You may have been a little worried at the sight of the Queen and the Queen's men scrambling up Big Ben after the hat last week but we are happy to report that they have all reached the ground safely again...Mary Poppins style!

In Phonics, the older children have been revising all the graphemes they have learned so far to represent the long vowel sounds, for example ai, ay, a-e, etc for the long a phoneme.  The Reception children have had great fun learning /j/ for jelly, following instructions to make jelly before engaging in some messy play...

In Maths this week we have been thinking about "working systematically."  Blue and Green groups had a long think about what this might mean, and we decided that 'working systematically' is a good way to solve Maths problems, it means that you manage to find all the possible answers and (hopefully) make no mistakes!  One of our problems was:
"There are two toadstools, but all of their spots have fallen off!  How many different ways can you put the eight spots back onto the two toadstools?"
Thinking systematically, we decided to start by putting all eight spots on the first toadstool and zero on the second toadstool.  To continue working systematically we then put seven spots on the first toadstool and one on the second toadstool...can your child explain how we continued to solve this problem systematically?
Red group have been thinking about making repeating patterns with a variety of objects.  I have even set them a little pattern-making challenge on Seesaw!  I look forward to seeing their contributions.

Many thanks to everyone for your patience as we have sorted out login details for Seesaw, our new remote learning platform.  The children have enjoyed practising in school over the week.  A particular well done to those children who have had a go at logging on and responding to the activities from home.  If you have not yet had the chance to do this, why not log on over the weekend and send us a message?

Finally Mrs Hatch has let us know about this exciting opportunity for the children:
 
YST After School Sport Club
 
The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. The After School Sport Club will then run for five weeks until December 18 and children and young people can take part live by visiting our YouTube channel – just click on the image below:


Wishing all our families a lovely weekend.
