Thank you for all the amazing learning you have sent in as part of our home learning.
If you have any questions, thoughts or resources you would like to share please do come in and see us.
Thank you for your continued support.
At the beginning this term we are reading the book 'Don't let the pigeon stay up late.' We are reading and writing instructions linked to this text. We will also be looking at a variety of different poems. We will be learning poetry off by heart as well as writing our own poems.
'Daily readers' has been working really well! By giving the children a reading day we are able to assess their reading each week. (Teacher/T.A) Thank you to all the parents who have listened to children read in addition to this. It makes a real difference.
'Daily readers' days have changed this term. Your child's new day is written in their organiser.
If you listen to your child read at home please write a comment in their organiser. At least three times a week please for them to get their library card signed and when their card is full they will be entered into a reading raffle.
Thank you for supporting your child with their target words each week. Don't forget to ask your child to put their words into sentences on the back. (Little and often is the key!)
'Teach your monster to read' is a fantastic app to download onto your phone or tablet.
Our Maths learning over the next few weeks will focus on multiplication and division. we will be counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10. Solving one step problems involving multiplication and division using concrete objects and pictorial representations and making arrays with the support of an adult.
We will then move onto Fractions, recognising, finding and naming a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity and a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.
Early in the new half term your child will be bringing home their next set of Key Instant Recall Facts - Double and halves. The aim is for them to recall these facts instantly. The secret to success is practising little and often.
This half term we will begin our year long experiment observing seasonal changes on trees.
This half term we will be continuing to focus on "Plants."
We will identify and name a variety of common plants, including garden plants, wild plants and trees.
We will also identify and name a variety of edible plants.
Well done if you remembered to water your cress seeds and they grew! If you took a photo of your cress please bring it into school so we can share it with everyone.
