Term 6 Week 1

We are pleased to announce that we will be performing The Pied Piper of Henleaze for our Year 2 play. Please click on this link to access the songs and lyrics for children to learn up until our performance on…..

 

During the first week of term 6 we will be carrying out our Phonics Screening for any children who did not pass in the Autumn. 

Reading:

It is wonderful to see so many children engaged in our Read for the Stars incentive. Certificates have been flying out in celebration assembly and some children are nearly on the last side of their second bookmark! We just wanted to remind all children that the crown prize for achieving this many reads is a very special head teacher’s certificate and a book (which will be given as part of special end of year celebrations). Keep up with all your fantastic efforts: I think Mrs Hibbard is going to be very busy ordering LOTS of books for children at Henleaze Infants School.

ADVANCE WARNING

  • During the second week of term 6 we will be holding our special whole school week where we will be commemorating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We will be asking the children to wear red, white and blue or purple on the Friday (17th June). More information about the week’s activities will come in our first week back.

Here are some dates for your diary:

Sports Day – Afternoon of Thursday 23rd June – 1:30 pm

Learning Shares in classes –  Friday, July 1st (Classes 4 and 6, 9:10am and Class 5 at 2:50pm.)

We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

English 

Spelling and Grammar (SPAG):

Spelling: 

We will be focusing in adding the prefix un to a root word, for example

  • unhappy, undo, unlock 

We will also be revising the past and present tense, as well as identifying word categories: nous, adverbs, adjectives and verbs. 

Reading:

We will continue with our guided reading sessions using our reading dogs skills to enhance our reading. 

Writing

In writing this week we will be immersing ourselves in a new story called ‘Lila and the Secret of the Rain’. We will be learning the structure of the story so that we can write our own versions of it.

Maths

This week in Maths the children will be consolidating their understanding of place value. We will recap counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. Any practise you can do on this at home would be amazing! The children will be answering lots of reasoning and problem solving questions, with a focus on explaining HOW they worked out their answers. 

Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Topic)

We will begin practising songs for our play this week. We are super excited about it! 

Art

This week in art the children will use their observational skills to sketch house plants in class. 

R + WV

In R+WV this week we will think about special places for Hindus – eg. the Mandir.  We will think about these questions:

What do people do when they go to the Mandir?

Why is the Mandir important to the people who visit and pray there?

What do some of the pictures or symbols in the Mandir mean?

PSHE

In PSHE this week we will look at life cycles in nature.
