Thank you to the parents who have registered for our Edmodo classroom. We now have 20 children rerady to use the site.
In RE the children are learning about promises and the promises that were made at their baptism. Thank you to those who have sent in photos or candles or clothes from your child's Christening day. They have contributed to a lovely display in our classroom. Please can you talk to you child about their Christening day, so they are able to talk and write about it next week. For example, where they were Christened, which church, who their Godparents were and how you celebrated as a family afterwards.
Next week, the children are going to play some games with the 3 and 4 times tables. Please help your child to count in multiples of 3 and 4. Help them to spot the numbers that appear in both tables (12, 24 and 36). If your child is already competent with the multiplication facts for these tables, please help them to learn the corresponding division facts.
To make it more fun, the children have been given a fortune teller to make for the 4x table.
If your child prefers to play interactive computer games, Hit the Button is a good site to use to develop speed of recalling multiplication facts. At school, we check how many attempts the children have at each question when a game is over to ensure they are not randomly clicking the answers.
Please continue to read regularly with your child.
