Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Recently in room 8…


As always the boys and girls in room 8 have been working super hard and should be extremely proud of themselves.  In Literacy we are learning new sounds and words every week.  Please continue to support your child with reading and spelling these words as and when you can.  We have made amazing progression with our writing and can independently write in sentences using the correct punctuation.  We also have an understanding of how and when to use commas, speech marks, question and exclamation marks.

This term we have focused on vocabulary and can explain what nouns, verbs and adjectives are.-  For instruction writing this was very useful and the children were able to use ‘bossy verbs and time connectives’.

We are currently focusing on multiplication and linking it to repeated addition.  We know that 3 x 2 is the same as 2+2+2.  We are also learning about ‘time’, focusing on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

Room 8 are thoroughly enjoying our new topic, ‘Chocolate’.  We have learned how chocolate is made, looked at different brands of chocolate, designed our very own chocolate bar and wrapper and are super excited to make our own chocolate later this week.  We also had fun melting chocolate and making delicious chocolate covered fruit skewers. We followed up this activity by writing our own set of instructions explaining what to do step by step.

In P.E we are working on our fitness and improving our stamina.  It is fun but very tiring.  The children are enjoying the challenge and like to try and find their pulse every week.
