Week Beginning 21.05.18

This week we are having the story 'The Enormous Turnip' which the children will absolutely love acting out! The story is about teamwork and pulling together. This story has allowed the children to think about different words to use instead of big to enable the children's vocabulary to grow. The stories that we are reading from now on will all have a message in to spark off discussions about different topics to encourage deeper thinking skills.

In maths we are concentrating on teen numbers. We want the children to feel really confident with these numbers. We have been writing the teen numbers to practice the correct formation. We are also revisiting doubling, halving, adding and subtraction.

New tricky words this week are what and when - please practise reading these words at home as the children need to be able to recognise these straight away as they cant be sounded out. When they can read them, the children need to learn to spell these from memory.
We have covered all of Phase 2 and 3 tricky words and we are working on Phase 4 at the moment.

Don't forget there is a story cafe on Friday morning at 9am for about an hour for you to come in and partake in a reading activity with your child. We look forward to seeing a many of you who can make it.
