Welcome to Cardiff Class Page
Our topic is 'Wonderful World!' We are exploring stories by the author and illustrator Eric Carle.
There are plenty of bugs going round at this time of year so please be considerate of other children and the staff and keep your child at home if they are unwell. If you have felt the need to give them Calpol before school they are probably not fit for school and should be at home resting.
This week we will be revising all the sounds we have learnt with Jolly Phonics. The children will not be learning any new sounds, instead we will practise the ones we have learnt and use them to read and write simple words. We will mark this weekend's homework and return the books to you for going through in the holidays. Revisiting these sounds often reinforces the learning and enables the children to approach reading and writing with greater independence. In mathematics the children have been learning to count irregular arrangements of objects, and finding out that when a group of objects is rearranged in different ways the total is still the same. You could try this at home. How many different ways can you split 5 pasta shapes into two groups? Can you draw the results? We are planning to make poppies for remembrance and animal cookies this week. Look on our interactive topic page for the recipe. Post a picture if you make some in the holidays!
Our interactive topic page for learning can be accessed via the link below by copying it and pasting it into your browser. You will then be asked for the password which you have been sent via text message. You can add photos and comments to this from home with your child which they can then share with the class as 'Show and Tell'. Please ask us if you have any difficulties with this we will be happy to show you it in the classroom after school. There are also links to learning resources here you may like to use at home which are tablet friendly. Well done to everyone who has used it or added their own images so far!
