Week Beginning 9nd May

What a glorious day Sunday has been. I can smell lots of BBQs as I write this.

In English we are continuing work linked to our whole school text ‘Sea Of Dreams’. We will be writing instructions for cork boats that we have made. We will also be working on presentation skills as we get pieces of work ready for our exhibition.

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 suffixes ‘ment’ and ‘ness’. 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 - c group c o a d g q s

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.
