Welcome to Term 5 - our topic this term is:
PE - Monday and Wednesday. Please wear PE kit to school on those days.
Reading Books - children will be given the opportunity to change their home reading books once a week with Year 6 Library monitors.
Snacks - Please bring a full water bottle and a healthy snack for breaktime each day
Forest Friday -
Details of each week's homework will be on the class story of Class Dojo each Friday and is due in the following Friday. Homework could be English based or topic related.
Reading - Please read together at least three times a week and put a weekly post on your child's dojo portfolio about how often you have read and how the reading has been going. The focus should be fluency, expression and comprehension. Children will either have a book matched to their reading age or phonics phase as appropriate.
Spelling - For the majority of the class, we have a new scheme in school which follows a fortnightly pattern and uses an investigative approach. The children will be set an investigation every two weeks to complete at home and bring it home in their spelling folder. Please return this two weeks later.
Year 3/4 words - the children will be introduced to these over two years in class focussing on the areas of the word that are difficult or tricky to remember. This list will be sent home later in the year as appropriate. The children have brought home the Year 1/2 list. Please work through this at your child's pace, discussing it with them to identify any words which require practice. The important point to note is that these words must be spelled correctly in independent writing. Some children will be given individual sets of words to practice based on their learning needs.
The children will also be set spelling and grammar tasks on spag.com from time to time.
Maths - a mathematics task will be set most weeks using either Mathletics or Purple Mash. Our times table for Term 2 is 2 x table and related division facts with a focus on quick recall. There are times table games and songs on both of the above platforms for practice.
Booklets for additional practice
