This year you will have lots of opportunities to celebrate your learning with your family and friends by reading our very own class page.
We will be having a very busy year with lots of exciting activities to look forward to.
It is also very important that the children read regularly at home.This can be reading books we send home or favourite books and magazines. The library is also a great place to borrow a variety of books.
We aim to foster a love of reading in all we do and hope you can support that at home.
Books are changed in school Monday, Wednesday and Friday please make sure books are returned on these days.
Writing takes place daily and is done in many ways from handwriting practice, grammar and punctuation, guided writing and independent pieces.
Writing is linked to our topics and takes place in all subject areas.
We use Talk for Writing that encourages the children to learn structures for writing in a fun way.This includes both fiction and non fiction writing that are covered every half term.
Phonics is an important way to develop writing and children take part in daily phonics sessions.
These are statutory word lists provided by the government and children must learn to read and spell the words below.
Wherever possible lessons are practical and fun. We encourage children to problem solve to deepen understanding of mathematical concepts.
Real life challenges are given to practise maths with meaning and how to show how maths is used in daily situations.
Children also take part in mini maths sessions three times a week practising counting in 2s 5s and 10s, number bonds and number formation.
Extra things you can do to get involved are:
- Grow some plants or vegetables talking about each part of the plant and how it develops.
- Go to the library and borrow different books which the children show an interest in.
- Practise writing stories using fantastic new ideas and words.
- Talk about time during the day, what time is lunch time, bed time, etc?
- Regularly asking the children about what they are learning about in their topic and linking arts and crafts activities towards it.
