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.

ADVANCE WARNING

  • We will be making our bug houses next week so please do continue to bring in your recycling and natural resources. A reminder of the type of thing we’re looking for: toilet rolls tubes, cardboard, corrugated card shoe-boxes, clean tins, dried natural materials e.g pinecones, sticks, leaves, moss and straw/hay! (If bringing in tins, please make sure they don’t have any sharp edges).

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): 

We will be practising  our spelling of Common Exception Words this week and seeing if we can spell them correctly in dictated sentences. 

In grammar we will be using our knowledge of questions, commands and statements to create our own sentences.

Reading:

We will be practising our comprehension skills with a Sports Day themed reading activity. As well as revising those reading dog skills in our guided reading sessions. 

Writing:

This week we will be Creative Unicorns and whilst sticking closely to the story structure and language, will be innovating Lila and the secret of the rain to create our own stories! 

Maths

This week in Maths we will be recapping repeated addition and linking this to multiplication equations. The children will remind themselves what an array is and create some array art. See below for an example. We will also recap doubling numbers. 

Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Topic)

We will continue to practise our play songs this week!

DT

In DT we will begin to design our bug hotel. We will look at examples from around the world and understand why they are important for our environment. Our aim will be to design a purposeful, functional, and appealing product for the bugs.

R + WV

In R+WV this week we will continue to consider places that are special to members of religious communities and learn what it is like inside a mosque.

PSHE

In PSHE we will be learning to recognise how our bodies have changed since we were babies and consider where we are on the continuum from young to old.
