Week Beginning 22nd May 2017

Only a week to half term already. Remember this year we only have one week. Thank you to everyone who came to the Fun Run. What a great afternoon it was in a fabulous setting.

In English we are finishing story telling work linked to our whole school text ‘Sea Of Dreams’.

In Mathematics we are continuing work on reinforcement activities for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Theme/Study
We are continuing with work on the theme “What Wonderful World” looking at the world from a geographical perspective and finding out about different kinds of homes including ocean habitats. This links with our Science focus on Living Things and Different Habitats as well as to our school project on Sea of Dreams. In science we are continuing to develop discussion, sorting and classifying skills around Living Things.

In phonics/spelling the focus is on The /l/ or /…ôl/ sound spelt ‘-al’ at the end of words (metal, pedal, capital, hospital, animal, petal; and with suffix ‘-al’,

medical, magical )We continue in all lessons to develop and reinforce the use of different spelling strategies. We will also be reinforcing all the spellings for the long vowel phonemes.

Our handwriting focus is on the following letters - r group r n m h k p b

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 read to you or to themselves at home. We have a reading session every day where the children take part in a variety of reading activities one of which includes Guided with me. Here we focus on using the skills needed to decode words as well as developing comprehension skills.
