Instead of an author of the term, this year we are looking at exploring lots of different books with the children. We encourage the children to talk about books they like to read at home, sometimes they want to bring their books into school and its great to share different stories! Here are some authors that we recommend:
In reading and writing we will be focusing on using our phonics and becoming familiar with a variety of texts.
Challenge yourself to write a shopping list, a postcard or a story at home using these skills.
We begin each session with an interactive activity called ‘Power Up’ where all children have the time to practise previous taught methods and strategies. In future weeks we will be exploring numbers to 50 and measuring length, height weight and volume. Practising skills such as addition, subtraction, place value and using cm and ml to measure.
Spellings are given out each Friday to learn for a test the following week. Please remember to practise little and often and apply each in your independent writing.Spellings will be sent home to learn from Friday 11th October 2019.
Homework is handed out each Friday and to be completed by the following Wednesday.
Activities range from our current English, Mathematic and Topic work.
In history we are learning about homes from the past and comparing them to modern day homes. We will be looking at Victorian artefacts and discussing these.
Our topic this term is humans and animals. We have currently looked at different parts of the body and the diets of a variety of animals e.g. herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. We will soon be looking at categories of animals such as reptiles, mammals, amphibians and insects.
