Week Beginning 21st January 2018

This week we will be starting out new topic, which we are calling “Whatever Happened to Goldilocks?”

The children and I will be discussing ideas for Takeaway and I will post this on our webpage asap and send a paper copy home.

We will be using the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears alongside two texts, which have a slightly different, take on the story – Goldilocks and Just The One Bear by Leigh Hodkinson and You and Me by Anthony Browne. Alongside these our topic work will link to Bears. Please have a look at the curriculum overview on our webpage.

In English this week we will be writing the traditional tale of Goldilocks in particular looking at the sequence of the story.

In Mathematics we will finish work on Money with a focus on Reasoning and Problem Solving skills.

Don’t forget this resource too to help with learning number facts/timetables etc.

In our topic work last week we started to make our own small world role-play of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will continue with this this week.

Our handwriting focus is on the following letters – l group of letters l t I u y j

In phonics/spelling the focus is adding suffixes to words ing, est, er,ed. We are also continuing to reinforce Long Vowel words, learning to use a GPC and spelling tricky words.

In RE our new unit of work is on the Christian Concept: Kingdom of God with the theme of Jesus’ Teaching. The key question will be Why did Jesus teach his disciples to pray the Lord’s Prayer; ‘Your Kingdom Come?’

Reading Books
The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have completed a book at home with you.

Miss Porter and I each half term will continue to assess all the children’s reading again using our benchmarking system. Please bear with us as it does take time but is a thorough assessment of the level the children are reading at.

Our PE days are Monday am (Ms Charlesworth) and Wednesday am (Sports’ Coaches)
