Week beginning 9.03.15


On Wednesday Alex Miller will be  doing some music, rhythm and songs with the children.

Comic relief is on Friday. For £1 the children can make their face funny for money or simply have a non-uniform day.

Gym – Monday and Friday.

Handwriting – This week we will be practising the letters b and h.

Handwriting Homework – Tuesday and Thursday.

Common words – This week we will be making, reading and writing the words by and said.

Please help your child to practise reading the common words by using the words in their word pots to play games and test their word recognition skills. Lots of the common words can’t be sounded out so the children need to be encouraged to look at the shape of the whole word and use letters to help them. Please practise the words on the common word wall (found in their Home School Book). See if your child can match the words in their pot with the ones on the wall and then help them to try and read them. If the words are ticked they were able to read them in class.

Reading – Your child will get either a reading book or a reading activity on Monday and Wednesday. Please encourage your child to read it as often as possible, sounding out the letters (for example, c-a-t) and then blending them together to say the word (cat).

Maths – We are beginning a new block of work on Information handling. we will be doing surveys, making graphs and displaying information in different ways.
