Reading Comprehension History
I hope you all had a lovely half term week. We finally had the whole class back to school today after various ailments - it's always so lovely to have a full class!
We started a new book this week - Floodland by Marcus Sedgewick. It's already instigated some heated discussions among the children about global warming and climate change. We have started by writing a character description about the main character Zoe and describing the setting, thinking about senses and figurative language.
I accompanied the children to swimming this week - it was great to see so much enthusiasm and confidence among the children in the pool. Because they are swimming and going to Forest School this term, there is no other PE until after Easter. Unless your child needs PE kit in school for a club they do not need to bring PE kit into school.
Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday. We will be testing the 6 x table on 28th February.
Times Tables Rockstars!
To keep practising the multiplication taught in class, and challenging yourself to keep the ones you already know fresh, don’t forget to log into your Times Tables Rockstars account.
Rapid recall of multiplication is essential for success in maths and Times Tables Rockstars gives children self-confidence, recognition and motivation to improve. Challenge yourself to beat your score, build your knowledge and watch your confidence sore, as you become a Rockstar!
Please ask your class teacher if you need replacement log in details.
The link below will take you to the spelling scheme we are working from in school.
Spellings for Mrs
Miss Hollands' Group
Mrs Shrimpton’s blue group
Mrs Shrimpton’s purple group
Spellings will be tested on Wednesdays.
Please note that Mrs Shrimpton's group has a blue and purple group. This relates to the colour of the book they are working on in class.
All children have been given a new AR bookmark and know their AR bands. They have selected a book to read at home and school. Please ensure you hear your child read regularly and record on Boom Reader. I have log in reminders for the children to bring home.
Please note: pupil login details have changed slightly due to an upgrade that has taken place on the Accelerated Reader platform. Pupil login details (user name and password) should now be enter in all lower case (no capital letters at all). These login details are used each time your child quizzes a school reading book which carries an accelerated reading quiz code.
Music Knowledge Organiser
Below is the music knowledge organiser for this term's music topic. To help with their in-class learning, please can the children read over this each week.
