So, we found out tonight just how engaged our parents are. A desire to support their children brought a very large crowd to our hall to learn about phonics from their children’s teachers.Learning about phonemes, graphemes, digraphs, 5 phases and stretch and ping, there was great enthusiasm and enjoyment. Thank you all for coming and thank you to the teaching team for making it such a valuable experience.

In Maths this week we have been looking at measurement and exploring ways of using measurement. We have begun to use language such as longer, longest, shorter, shortest, taller and tallest. We have also measured using non standard measurements - using our hands as our tool, progressing on to using rulers and units of measure such as CM.

In Literacy we have been concentrating on the structure of sentences, whilst introducing adjectives to our writing all based around the book 'Sydney, Stella and the Moon'.

We have continued with our theme, Hemel Hempstead and have looked at industries that sprang up around the area of Apsley, looking at the paper mill and John Dickenson, the children then had a go at making their own paper. See photo in class pages.

Thank you to all the parents who attended the meeting yesterday. Attached is the powerpoint that was presented. We hope that this meeting was informative and we look forward to a positive year ahead !
