English

In English we explore books from a range of genre to develop our speaking and listening skills, reading and writing. We also work hard to improve our knowledge and use of different punctuation and grammar. We also develop our word decoding and spelling skills during daily phonics sessions and a weekly spelling test. We retell stories, poems and non-fictions texts using a range of talk for writing activities. These include performing the text using actions, story boards and rewriting it in our books. We also use the different texts as models to modify texts and invent our own ideas for writing new texts.

Home Learning

Spellings: Will usually be given out on Mondays to learn for spelling tests the following Monday. Completed spelling sheets need to be returned on a Monday to encourage children to complete their spellings in good time. 

Class Newsletters and Mission homework are sent out at the first week of each half term. There will be twelve tasks which can be completed at any time over the half term. We suggest compiling two pieces a week.

Things to Remember

Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day. Remember it is part of their school uniform.
We ask for a voluntary contribution of £1.00 which will be used to enhance the curriculum.

Library

Your child can also visit the school library each week (Friday) and can change their library book and bring it home to share.  It is essential this book is looked after as a small charge will be asked for if the book is lost or damaged.
