Homework projects are to be handed in on Friday 8th July, we can't wait to see what you have been doing at home :)
In English for the next two weeks, we are going to be looking at a story called 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley. We will be looking at how the story is sequenced and compare the different characters we meet, using character descriptions.
In our mathematics lessons we are looking at place value of numbers upto 100. We will identify one more and one less, partition numbers into tens and ones, as well as ordering and comparing numbers. We will be using base ten and counters to help us.
The whole school are taking part in National Science Week, this year's theme is on Growth. The children will all take part in fun activities throughout the week based around the national theme.
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 now be bringing 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? 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.
This half term in Science we are looking at plants. We are going to start of by looking at some seeds and describing them, we will then be planting our own sunflowers which will be coming home over the next few weeks to continue growing. During our science topic we will also be looking at types of trees, we will be exploring the school grounds to look and name different types of trees. Keep an eye on our page for pictures! On Wednesdays we will continue our PSHE lessons, learning all about 'healthy me', and in music we will be learning the song 'Your Imagination'.
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.
- 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 Miss Holloway :)
