If you haven't yet visited laser to give permission for your child to take part in our visit to Neasden Temple, can you please do this by Friday 12th January.

 

 

As part of our Geography topic ‘Why do so many people visit the Mediterranean for their holidays?’ we are making links with a school in Spain. As part of this, children will need to take a picture of a meal at home which is labelled accordingly. Please could this be emailed into school by Monday 22nd January. Please see below for an example:

Calendar

Home learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation will be recorded at the back of English books  so you can see achievement and progress when English books are sent home.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Reading Challenge 

Please read the information about our new reading challenge:

Once the children have read a book, they will need to complete one of the reading activities outlined below. This can be done in their reading planners or on a separate piece of paper.

 

Activitiy choices (you can do the same one twice):

1. Compare the book to another book you have read. What was similar? What was different? Think about the characters/ setting and events. 

2. Draw a picture of your favourite character and write down five words or phrases to describe the character's personality and five words or phrases to describe their appearance. 

3. As you're reading, list any unfamiliar words and write down the meaning.

4. If you could make one change to the story, what would it be and why?

5. Make a note of 3 of your favourite sentences and explain why you like them.

6. Complete a 'story S' which outlines the main events of the story.
