 WE: 22nd November 2019

 Hi everyone,

 It has been Road Safety Week this week and the children have made posters to advertise how to  stay safe on the roads. 

Our updated book share books will be updated on Monday.

Oak 1's book share recommendations this week: Boogie Bear by David Walliams, Bad Dad by David Walliams, My First Animal Questions and Answers.

Oak 2's book share recommendations this week: Gansta Granny by David Walliams, Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dann, The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig by Emer Stamp. 

We will also be sharing optional additional spellings each week on the website. We will practise these spellings in school during Friday's spelling session. We understand that some children may have moved past these words on the bookmark system, however we feel it is useful to rehearse these spellings. If you wish to try additional spellings, please think of words using our spelling rule of the week. 

This week's spellings are: wild, climb, behind, walking, altogether, sunny.

This week's spelling rule has been: For some words we double the final consonant before adding -y. See if you children can change these words: spot-spotty, run-runny, bog-boggy, mud-muddy, nut-nutty, slop-sloppy.

Maths challenge: This week there is extra on Doodlemaths.

Darcy says "When you add zero to a number, the number stays the same." Do you agree or disagree? Explain your reasoning!

There are 26 people on a school bus. 9 more children get on the bus. How many people are on the bus now? - We have used this link to practise counting in 10s, 2s, 5s and 3s.
