week 3/10/16-7/10/16

This week in Cyprus class!

Please check our blog every week, as we will be posting information about our learning and tasks to complete for home learning.

Book bags: Please ensure your child brings his/her book bag to school every day, as it is a means of transporting reading materials safely and it is a valuable method of communication. Please check your child’s bag every evening.

Uniform: Please ensure all items of clothing (PE kits and uniform) are clearly labelled with your child’s first and last name.

PE kits: Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is at school every Monday morning.

Reading: Your child would have received a home reader and reading journal. Please read with your child every night. In the reading journal, write a comment about their reading and sign to acknowledge you have listened to them. Children are reminded to change their books during the morning activity time with Mrs Pavlou.

This week in literacy we are learning about sentences and instruction writing. In numeracy, we are continuing to explore the number bonds of 10, and will be estimating and measuring time. In topic, we are finding the answer to the challenge question: Who were the superstars in Ancient Greece?
