How many ways can you make 10?

Firstly, I'm so glad many of you are finding the Class Egypt blog useful. As a parent I understand the confusion that can result from children bringing home random snippets of information (or just hearing the word 'fine' when you ask how you child's day went!) I hope the blog puts those snippets into some kind of context! Please do let me know if you can think of ways I can improve the blog  -it's for you and your family after all, so as long as it's manageable I'll be happy to include your suggestions.

You'll notice that the promise of photos hasn't materialised yet. The process of attaching the photos has changed and has beaten me so far - but I'm hoping that this week I'll be able to sort it out for you.

Last week was another lively week! More poetry, which has been such a great way to start the term. We all helped write a class poem entitled 'What bugs me?' where each child wrote a line to create a list poem. Surprisingly I featured in some of the children's lines!! I can't think why! The poem is displayed in the classroom so do come and take a look sometime.

In  maths we focussed on number bonds to 5 and 10. The children have learnt and made up rhymes to help remember the numbers that make 5 and 10. If you would like a copy so your child can practice at home, just let me know.

The children have really impressed us with their knowledge of how plants survive, and are enjoying the investigations with Mrs. Johnson. You'll be receiving a letter shortly about the visit from Explorerdome on Friday 12th October where the children will be taking part in a range of scientific activities linked to light and dark. Should be fun!

Next week, as ever promises to be busy and full. In terms of the children's learning, the focus will be writing individual poems on the theme of 'Night time'; subtraction  in maths (to 10/20) exploring the language of subtraction such as minus, take away, subtract; in our IPC the children will be drawing pictures of their own homes at night - after our masterclass wiht Mrs. Davies last week, and we'll be embarking on our geography focus where we'll start by exploring why different localities experience different amounts of daylight.

We do hope that lots of you will be able to make it to the meeting tomorrow at 2.40 - an opportunity for you to find out more about what goes on in your child's day and to ask any questions you may have. Please come to the front door and sign in before making your way to the classroom. As I said before, if you are unable to come, do not hesitate to get in touch and I'll happily chat to you another time.
