Thank you for your attendance at the workshop today. I hope you learnt some strategies for supporting your children at home.
This week we have also celebrated Anti-Bullying week. We have looked closely at what makes a good friend and how to be a good friend. We also know that at Margaret Wix School we are a 'telling' school therefore, will always tell an adult if we are, or see somebody who is being bullied.

This week Emperors have retold the story of Jamil's Clever Cat. They have worked hard to sequence the story and to include interesting sentence starters, expanded noun phrases (adjectives) and speech. The African Tale- Mufaro's beautiful Daughters has also been introduced. In maths Emperors have been developing our subtraction skills using a range of strategies.
Week Commencing: 30.11.17
This week Emperors have been reviewing their knowledge of the numbers 0-20. They have used a variety of resources to show doubles within 20 and explored the link to halving. We have also partitioned numbers and regrouped using numbers that we can add using our number knowledge (e.g. 5+ 5 = = double 5 = 5 x 2). In literacy we have began reading the Bengal traditional tale: Jamil's Clever Cat. We have looked closely at the beginning, middle and end of the story and retold through story maps and role play.
Week Commencing: 16.10.17
This week we have had a lot of fun in Emperors Class sharing our topic homework. It has been fantastic to see all the great things that have been done! In literacy we there has been a focus on a new genre of writing: an explanation text. A toy has been selected and steps written about how it works. It includes: an introduction, steps for how it works and a conclusion. Well done to Emperors for taking part in this half terms Spelling Bee, we had lots of super spellers. Good work!
Week Commening: 9.10.17
Emperors have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s this week. They have used their times tables knowledge to count on from a given number and they have been able to answer word problems and true or false questions e.g. I start on 20 and count up in 5s, I say 55. Is this true or false? Emperors have also written their planned stories of Whistleless. I have been impressed with their use of repetitive language and speech.
Week commencing: Monday 2nd October
This week Emperors Class have shown off their creative skills and made their very own peg doll. I was impressed with the interesting ways they used the materials given and soon we will evaluate them to think about what we did well and how we could improve.
This week in literacy we have watched a fantastic animation called Whistleless and used it as a stimulus to plan our own story. It has been a lot of fun! In mathematics we have compared numbers and the greater than, less than and equal to symbols have been introduced.
