Mountfields Lodge School


Week beginning 12th October

Hello Class Diamond. I am so sorry that I won’t be seeing you this week but our class work will continue on Seesaw.

Each day you will have four tasks – English, Maths, Phonics and EOW.

We will be carrying on with our work on adding 2-digit numbers in Maths.

Now that we have finished our English learning on instructions, we are going to concentrate on writing and punctuating sentences this week.

In Phonics we will be revising the phase 5 phonemes we have learnt so far and our EOW tasks will be linked to our themes of keeping healthy and autumn.

I will be responding to each of the tasks you are able to complete throughout the week. Keep working hard Class Diamond and see you soon.

7th October – Weaving with fabric

We spent a wonderful afternoon making large pieces of weaving. We thought about colour and texture and we all worked with patience and perseverance!  They took quite a long time to make!

Week beginning 5th October 2020

This week in English we will be continuing our work on instructions. We will be reading ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ by Gareth Edwards and Hannah Shaw and writing instructions for how to make our own disgusting sandwich.

In Maths we will be working on number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.

We will continue our weaving project by making large woven sculptures using fabric.

Paper Weaving

This week we will be:

  • Learning how to write a clear set of instructions
  • Adding and subtracting numbers
  • Continuing our Science work on food and teeth.
  • In Design and Technology we will be weaving different materials.

21st- 25th September

We began the week with a mystery! Mrs Shephard took our picnic basket, full of delicious food, up to the field. When we went up later to see it, all the food had disappeared! We found a note that told us that some squirrels had taken it! We will have to design some food that the squirrels won’t like. We have been reading lots of instructions and following them to make different things.

Learning about instructions

Week beginning 21st September

This week we will be:

  • Starting a new English unit learning how to write instructions. To begin with, we will be making things by reading and following instructions.
  • Learning to count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s in Maths.
  • In Science we will be learning all about different foods and the importance of a balanced diet. We will also be investigating how different drinks can affect our teeth. 

Friday 18th September

Today we investigated how exercise affects our bodies. We chose four different activities and carried out each one for a minute. We recorded the changes that happened to our bodies.

Investigating Exercise

Week beginning 14th September

This week we will be continuing our work on ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We will be writing our own stories based on the book. We have some great ideas and we all know the story really well now.  In Maths, we will be continuing our work on place value by comparing numbers using the greater than and less than signs. In Science we will be finding out about how we grow.

7th- 12th September

We have been enjoying our work on ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We drew some brilliant story maps to help us remember the story and we made lighthouses. We even had a visit from Mrs Grinling who told us all about her problems with the seagulls! Super work Class Diamond!
