In English this week we are continuing work linked to our whole school text ‘Sea Of Dreams’. We are looking at diary writing in the first person.

In Mathematics our focus for this half term will be Geometry – properties of shape. This week we are focusing on describing the properties of 2D shapes which includes learning about symmetry and right angles.

We are also reinforcing addition, subtraction , multiplication and division skills on a weekly basis.

Theme/Study
We will continue 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 will link with our Science focus on Living Things and Different Habitats as well as to our school project on Sea of Dreams.

In phonics/spelling the focus is on adding the suffixes ful, less, ly. We continue in all lessons to develop and reinforce the use of different spelling strategies. Some children will have long vowel phoneme spellings as a reinforcement activity for homework.

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

In RE this half term we are discussing at Forgiveness – How does prayer help Christian start again?, Salvation – What do Christians believed about salvation (being rescued/found)? and Resurrection – Why is the resurrection story important for Christians?

Our PE days are Monday (first lesson) and Wednesday (last lesson).

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 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 Reading with me. Here we focus on using the skills needed to decode words as well as developing comprehension skills.
