SPELLINGS:

HOMEWORK:

Spellings will be tested on a Friday morning and will be tested in the form of a dictation. This means new words will be put into full sentences to ensure children have an understanding of their meaning as well as their spelling.

Homework will be set on a half termly basis.

ENGLISH:

A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond.

The children started their learning this term, by discovering a rather large briefcase in the classroom. Upon further investigation, they emptied the briefcase to find a somewhat sticky jar of marmalade, a loaf of bread, some swimming armbands, a blue coat and a pair of red wellington boots! We are looking forward to hearing all about the adventure of this slightly troublesome bear!

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C S Lewis.

After half term, the children will be going on yet another journey; This time, through a wardrobe! I wonder what secrets we will discover in the land of Narnia.

READING RECORDS:

You will receive a new reading book three times a week. These days may change each week. Remember, if you finish your book you can read it again or continue reading a library book at home.

MATHS:

Multiplication, Statistics, Measurement, Money and Fractions

This term, the children will begin by continuing their multiplication and division unit – focussing on consolidating the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Following this, the children will learn more about the topic of money, becoming customers and shop assistants as we set up a classroom supermarket!
