Help to further you child's learning with Bug Club and Mathletics

By now you should have all received your child's Bug Club and Mathletics passwords in their contact books. If you have not received them or have any problems logging on please let your class teacher know. These are fantastic resources designed to support your child's in-school learning. With Mathletics your teacher will set tasks based around the learning that has taken place in class. Once completed your child is free to access any of the other games and challenges located on the site. It is a fantastic resource for practicing mathematical skills through fun games.

Bug Club is designed to supplement the reading books your child takes home each week. We know that your children love to read and sometimes read the books sent home from school quickly. By logging on to Bug Club your children can access many more books of a similar level to read. Your class teacher will open up online access to more books as the term goes on. Again, please do let us know if you have any problems logging-on to your child's page.

In class this week we will be focusing on one-more in maths. We will be looking at how we can solve one-more word problems both practically and with the aid of a number line. We will be continuing with Mr Gumpy in English, finding out all about a trip out with his friends in 'Mr Gumpy's Outing'. We will be looking at describing words and how to sequence a story as well as continuing to practice our sentence formations with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In Geography we will be learning all about the difference between human and physical features of the landscape and how this relates to Tunstall. In Science we will be continuing to learn about the seasons and the weather by finding out all about weather forecasts. You could watch the daily weather forecast with your child and talk about the different symbols they use.

We will also be continuing to learn about Jesus' Miracles in RE and portraits in Art as well as continuing to explore different ways of dancing in PE. Music will again be on a Tuesday and having mastered logging-on we will be exploring how to use the 'tracking pads' in Computing.
