It's starting to warm up so it must be Summer Term!
Class 4 are off to North American - we will let our imaginations enjoy and explore North America in a geographical capacity and through exploring different stories from the North American Culture. The native American story book by G.W Mullins and The girl who helped thunder by Stafano Vitale will form the basis of our creative writing. Pushing up the shy by Joseph Bruchac will enable the children to develop confidence with writing and performing their own play scripts.
Hopefully, we will be making more use of the Wild for Learning Area so watch out for text asking the children to come into school in their old clothes and wellies. Thank you.
Enjoy the adventures that reading brings! I hope you have found the reading questions sheet, which were sent home at Easter, useful in supporting your child with their reading. The questions, which are used by the staff in the Carey Federation, encourage discussion and investigation into the vocabulary, themes and viewpoints of different books. As before, maintaining regular reading opportunities will ensure your child is exposed to vocabulary and texts that will enable them to unlock an understanding into the wider world.
As part of our Maths work, again I will reiterate the importance of daily practice at home of times tables; I have been really pleased with the positive feedback from children and parents about the Times Tables Rock stars.
Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Thursday. PE will be on a Monday and a Friday, however, it's always useful to have their PE Kit in school all week.
We welcome anyone who would like to share an expertise with the children or hear them read, help with maths or get messy with the clay, just come and see us.
Many Thanks and as always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Miss Miners (Class Teacher) and Mrs Skinner (Teaching Assistant)
