Hedgehog Class

Homework projects are to be handed in on Friday 8th July, we can't wait to see what you have been doing at home :) 

 

English

In English for the next two weeks, we are going to be looking at a story called 'The Tiny seed' by Eric Carle. We will be discussing key words linked to the four seasons and explaining which season we think is best to grow flowers. This week we will focus on orally rehearsing sentences to help us write down a whole sentence. We will practice repeating the sentence out loud and we will count the words. In this story the seed goes on a journey through different settings and places. We will look at these settings and learn to sequence sentences. Finally, we will use adjectives to describe plants.

 

Mathematics

In our mathematics lessons we are looking at fractions. Last week we looked at halving shapes and amounts practically and pictorially. We will move onto sharing into four equal groups (quarters). We will do this practically with objects, before moving onto image representations and then in words, e.g. 'one quarter of 12'.

We have really focused on our groups being equal!

Phonics

Please take time over the half term break to practice all of your phonic sounds by reading words aloud and sounding out those parts you find tricky, as this will help you when we return back to school :-) Try to read some alien words aloud at home too! 

 

Reading

We have spent a lot of time this half term developing talk, reading stories and delivering our daily phonics program, as part of our teaching of reading.

We are pleased with how the children are progressing in learning to become a reader and in learning the phonic sounds. We are grateful for the support you give by reading with your child at home.

The children will continue to bring home a book they can begin to read fluently and the second book will be an instructional text that they may need more support with.

If you want to know more about our phonics program - how it is organised and how you pronounce sounds, please follow the link below. We would recommend the video in particular, where you can hear a child saying each of the sounds in our phonics program.

What is Letters and Sounds? | Oxford Owl

What is Letters and Sounds? Letters and Sounds is a systematic approach for teaching children to read using phonics. It is used in many schools in England, but is not a mandatory part of the National Curriculum.

Afternoons

This half term in History  we are looking at our local area. We are going to start off by asking questions! We will look at what we want to know about the area, e.g. When was the library built and how many schools are there? We will focus on the similarities and differences and use words to describe changes - change, past, present, similarities, differences, now, then. We are looking forward to asking someone who has lived in Sandhurst for over 25 years, lots of questions about the area. Following on from this, we will look at our library and Wellington College's library, specifically looking at similarities and differences between the two. We will end the unit exploring Wellington College and the Duke of wellington.

             

PE

Our PE day this year will be on a Friday. The good news is that you can come in your school PE kit in the morning and stay in it all day. You will need to wear a plain white T-shirt and black jogging bottoms; you might need a black sweatshirt to keep you warm in the winter. You can wear black trainers or plimsolls.

 

Helpful Reminders

  • To minimise the risk of lost property, we ask that all clothing items are clearly labelled with a name, including PE kit.
  • Please remember to send in a named water bottle every day, we know how important it is for children to stay hydrated.
  • Thank you for providing book bags, please send them in every day with the reading books and reading record book

                                     

                                         

                                         Best wishes from Mrs Shay :)
