The children have had a busy and rather warm week in the classroom. Jude is our Star Learner this week, his attitude to learning is really impressing us and his jolly persona is always a joy to see.
This week in RWI we have been looking at a new text 'Our House'. Each week as part of this program the children read and re-read the text in order that they gain fluency. They also practise, almost daily the red and green words, associated with the text, in order that they begin to recognise these by sight. You can also practise doing this with the books sent home. The spellings sent home with the children are also explored and practised but it is essential that this is also done at home. We want the children to learn these for a lifetime not just a day!
This week we have been looking at Geometry: Position and Direction. This will be assessed on Monday. If you would like your child to revise for this assessment please see the link below:
Thank you so much for the amazing 'Smoothie' homework you did, this really helps to consolidate our learning in class. I have popped some of these on a display in class. This week we have been looking at PSHE and considering how to keep safe, thinking about people we trust and how we are the same and different.
As always please read for five minutes each week day with your child. Review the red and green words at the front of your books.
Please practise spellings for the week.
Next week we will start our Geography unit on the UK. Please watch this video with your child to introduce them to this topic. Think about and discuss these questions:
Points for discussion:
· What are the four countries of the United Kingdom?
· What are the capital cities of each country ?
· What is a human feature in geography?
· What is a physical feature in geography?
· Can pupils describe the human and physical features of a place they know well?
Have a great weekend!
