Our theme for the term is Reach for Greatness and our reading, writing and topic sessions will be based on this.

Reading – Reading remains core to all learning and is used to drive our topic. We shall be doing this through our class novels and a selection of poetry and non-fiction texts.  Children take part in whole class guided reading and additional adult-led group reading sessions during the week.

Recommended reads linked to topic:

  • Biographies of inspirational people – This can be on athletes and people you might think are great and have achieved great things.

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 for 20 minutes.  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 and sign this in their reading record to say they have read to you or another adult.

Homework – Children will be expected to show that they have read for at least 20 minutes from Mondays to Thursdays. 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.
