What are we learning this half term?
Diosaurs and the World Cup/There's a world out there
For the final half term, we are learning about dinosaurs and using our Talk for Writing book, How to Grow a Dinosaur. From this we will learn about different dinosaurs, paleontologists, jungles, size, planting and even baking some dinosaur treats! Following this we are going to hold a World Cup Day and learn about some of the coutries and different cultures involved in the world event.
In phonics we are continuing with Phase 4 and learning strategies to read and write words with
more than one syllable. We are learning to spell all tricky words correctly. He, she, we, me, be,
was, my, you, her, they, all, are, said, so, do, have, like, some, come, were, there, little, one,
when, out, what. Please practise these at home.
We are focusing on our handwriting and how we form each letter correctly.
In Maths we are working towards the Shape, Space and Measure Early Learning Goal:
Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and
money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and
describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use
mathematical language to describe them.
Homework and book bags
We are continuing with the #30 challenges; thank you for all the hard work with the these!
Any additional work that they have completed at home can be brought into school to share with their class and we can include this in our learning journey.
In addition to the #30 please practise all phonemes and tricky words with your child.
Books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday so please make sure your child brings their bags on these days.
We expect all children to read or share a book for 5 minutes, 3 times a week. In their reading
record book you need to write the date, the name of the book and what pages they have read
with a short comment on how they have done in their reading record.
