Where We Are in Place and Time
Central Idea: Exploring evidence helps our understanding of people’s histories.
Next week, we will be starting to look at the photographs of the children growing up and constructing time lines to show their personal histories. Please take some time to chat to your child about what they were like as a baby/toddler, what they liked doing and favourite things that they liked to play with, eat etc. The more background information that the children have about themselves the better!

1L and 1W Parents please could you support the work that we are doing towards our class assemblies by helping the children to learn their lines. Thank you for your support.
Next week we will be exploring the idea of capacity. The children will be learning the language associated with capacity such as; full, empty, half full, almost full, almost empty. Through practical experiences, the children will be having the opportunity to fill, empty and make comparisons of containers related to their capacity.
Mathletics: – There are now some more activities open. Please enjoy supporting your child with these tasks. If your child is not yet logging onto Mathletics independently please support them to do so.
Please help the children to complete the Mathletics tasks that have been assigned to your child. The children can also enjoy Maths Live and play other children live across the world.
Next week, we will continue to think about the difference between questions and statements and will be encouraging the children to ask question before, during and after reading texts. The children will be learning to sort their questions and search for answers to their questions when they are reading.
When reading with the children this week you could try pausing and modelling your own thought processes and questioning. They can then try this for themselves and together you can see if your questions are answered as you continue to read.

A few of you were able to come to the Marie Marchand parenting workshop last week. We thought we would share a link to her website as she has many interesting and helpful articles for parents.
