Comet Class Weekly News 1st October 2021

Miss Mandelson - 29 Sep 2021

Taking Off!
Mrs Marley and I have been really pleased with Comet Class this week as they are really beginning to take off with their learning.  There is a lot to get through each morning but each and every child has risen to the challenge and worked hard to complete all their tasks, showing increasing stamina week by week.  The children are gradually getting to grips with their homework too and many have already completed the trial spelling homework which I uploaded onto Seesaw on Monday.  Please encourage your child to have a look at this over the weekend if they haven't already done so.  Huge thanks to Mrs Marley who has covered in Comet Class this week when I have had other commitments to attend to.  The children are always pleased to see her!

Having completed our non-fiction work on swallows last week, we focused on introducing the little swallow character in our own versions of The Happy Prince this week.  The children thought carefully about what they had learned about how swallows move when choosing precise verbs to open their sentences.  We took the opportunity to use some music and movement to help us imagine the little swallow darting, diving and soaring across the sky.  The children worked individually and collaboratively to express their ideas through dance and enjoyed performing both solo and in groups to showcase their routines.

It is also wonderful to see the pride the children are taking in their writing and their enthusiam to share their work with others.  There have been some super confident communicators who have read their work to the class clearly and with great expression. Well done.

In Maths this week, we have been identifying, working out and estimating numbers on a number line.  The children have learned that they must look very carefully at the start and end numbers to do this.  A special mention to Matilda who was the first to suggest identifying the midway point too as a guide.  As the week progressed we moved on to learning how to round to the nearest ten and the nearest hundred.  Take a look at this week's My Maths homework to practise these skills further.  Since spotting some Roman numerals on the postbox when posting our postcards the other week, the children have been keen to learn more.  The older children had great fun exploring this whilst the younger children were swimming today.  I was so impressed with how quickly they learned and applied rules and spotted patterns, which they then went on to use when working out how to write larger numbers in Roman numerals.  We shall carry on with this next week.  In the meantime, why not look out for Roman numerals in the environment.  Let me know if you spot any!

So many children have shone like stars this week!  Take a look below to see just some of the children's super work:

You will have also spotted that we have a few more children who have earned a spot on our Recognition Board for demonstrating one or more of our Christian values of kindness, patience, peace and love.  Well done to you all.
 
Last of all the children have been looking at a special poem as we think of the refugee crisis ahead of next week's Harvest Festival (which also happens to coincide with National Poetry Day).  We are looking forward to performing this for you in the service on Thursday.  The children have been practising how to project their voices as confident communicators.  Please support your child in helping them to learn and recite their lines over the weekend.  The church is a big space and the children are aiming to be heard without using the microphone.  Perhaps practise by seeing if your child can stand at the top of the stairs - can you hear them downstairs? Or from the end of the garden?  The trick is to speak audibly and clearly without shouting!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.
Miss Mandelson
