During other afternoons, we have creative curriculum activities, linking all subjects around our theme for the term which is World War One.
Reading – Reading is an area that we really need to focus on this year and therefore the Koalas will take part in whole class guided reading and an adult-led group reading session every day. Our class text this term is War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. This is a fantastic book and I am sure that the children will be able to learn a lot about the First World War whilst enjoying some brilliant literature.
Home reading books are available from the school and can be changed by the children at any time. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week. Please, would you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency? We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.
Homework – Children will be expected to show that they have read for at least 20 minutes from Monday to Thursday. They can either ask an adult to sign that they have read or write a summary sentence to show their understanding.
They will also receive four maths questions every day that will be checked on the following morning.
Spellings – Spellings will also be given out on a Friday and tested the following Thursday.
We will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have about any of the above, just catch us at the door or make an appointment.
