I hope you have had a lovely break! Our topic for term 6 is ‘Stay Healthy, Stay Happy’ and we will be using the text ‘The Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar and the Disney film ‘Inside Out’ to help us explore this topic. We will be looking at physical and emotional health & wellbeing, as well as what we can do to keep the planet healthy.
|Reading||Please read with your child regularly. Their books and book bags will need to be in every day. You may like to add a positive or helpful comment in their reading diary, but please acknowledge the fact that the book has been read by signing and dating in the comments space. A member of staff will be checking reading records on Fridays and children are expected to have read at least 3 times a week with an adult. Adults at school will not write in the books as we have our own records. Don’t forget, children can earn raffle tickets for weekly reading!|
|Spellings/grammar||Spelling will be tested each week on a Friday. Grammar will be sent out every other week on a Tuesday.|
|Times Tables||Please ensure that children are using Maths Rockstars at home to practise their times tables.|
|Maths||Maths homework will be on My Maths. Please ensure you support your children to complete this.|
Helping to Enrich Our Ttopics
It is always great to have items or visitors that support our topic, so if anyone has any experience or items that may help us with any of the work above that we could hear about or borrow, we would love to see and hear about them.
Please can you make sure your child brings in a water bottle each day with fresh water; ensure all jumpers are labelled and bring a coat for any wet weather.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Mrs Mackarness and Mrs Hill
Reading at School and at Home
I could sound out the word
I can miss out the word. Then I could read on to the end of a sentence and then go back and check what would make sense.
I look for smaller words in words.
I talk through my ideas, thoughts and feelings about what I am reading so I understand it.
When I read I imagine what is happening and create a picture in my mind.
I use the pictures to help me.
