ENGLISH

We will also be looking at setting the scene in stories and using the senses to describe objects.  The children will also be carrying out comprehension activities based around reading and understanding what has been read.  We will be reading 'Stone Age Boy', 'Cave Baby' and 'How To Wash A Woolly Mammoth' as class books.

Carry on reading together!

For English, the single most important thing that you can do to help your child progress, is to hear your child read. Good readers make good writers because they are exposed to a greater variety of vocabulary, syntax, grammar and style. When you listen to your child read, there are a number of things to remember:

  • Make it fun! Use silly voices and read to each other as well as just listening.
  • Ask questions about the text, the characters, the plot, the setting, the style of writing, the words. Anything to get them to think about what they are reading and understand the language and the deeper hidden messages in the sub-text.
  • Read a wide range of writing — from comics to newspapers; from novels to Pokemon cards; and even the children’s own writing!
  • Look up individual words in a dictionary or thesaurus together to find out what they mean.
  • Stop if they or you are tired!
  • Be a good role model for reading yourself. This is the perfect excuse to curl up on the sofa, forget the chores and read a good book yourself!

MATHS

In Maths we will be covering place value, addition, subtraction, division, times tables, number, shape, data handling, money, time and fractions.  As well as covering these topics we will be carrying out speed times table checks and skills checks weekly.  This will help the children to apply their knowledge and skills.

                      

 PSHE

This will be following the Jigsaw theme of 'Work'.  I will also be looking at the children's emotional wellbeing and settling into a new classroom and class.
