During our Phonics lessons this week we have been learning about plurals. This is when you have more than one thing.
Eg One dog à Lots of Dogs or One fox à Lots of foxes.
We have learnt that there a few rules that we have to remember when turning a singular (One) into a plural (lots of) Here is a list of our rules:
If the word ends in sh, ch, ss, zz or s then you add ‘es’ as your plural
witch --> witches
If the word ends in a 'y' making the /ee/ sound then we have a rhyme to help us:
'Say goodbye to the y and hello to the i '
baby --> babies
If the word ends in any other letters then you just add 's'
cat --> cats
In RE we have started learning about Judaism. We have learnt that Jews go to the synagogue for Worship just like we go to church. We have also learnt that Judaism is one of the old religions! It is 2000 years older than Christianity. We talked about how the symbol of a cross is important to Christians as it’s a reminder that Jesus died for them. Jews have an important symbol as well and it is called ‘The star of David’. We had ago at making our own! What do you think?
This week we have been learning how to partition a 2 digit number. We have learnt that a 2 digit number is made up of 10s and 1s. We have been using dienes to help us understand what to do. Some of us have been moving on to some trickier learning and making different number sentences that equal the same number! Mrs Garland is very proud of how hard we have worked during our first week back. Have a look at some of our learning:
