Jesse Owens weekly class update 11/06/2021

What a week we have had in Jesse Owens Class! It is great to see everybody back after the half term, and we have all worked really hard this week: the children should be very proud of themselves. But, we have had a bit of drama: our felt-tip pens have quit and left the classroom (just like the crayons in ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’)! We do not know where they have gone! We are going to write a fantastic persuasive letter to convince them to return to us.

In maths, we have been revising Place Value: Partitioning, comparing numbers and reading numbers on a scale (in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s).

In phonics, we have been recapping the /or/ sound spelt ‘al’- it is very tricky and it keeps tripping us up!

In Topic, we are looking at the uses of everyday materials in science to help King Charles II rebuild London after it was burnt down. We are going to investigate which are the most suitable materials to build houses with.

In music, we are learning the lyrics to the nursery rhyme ‘London’s Burning’. The children have really enjoyed singing, and they told me they have been practicing at home!
