Welcome to class RB
Spring term 2
Don't forget our dressing up day to celebrate World Book Day on Monday 26th February. Earlier date to coincide with our author visit.
For our phonics this week we will be revisiting and revising what we have learnt so far and working on learning the digraphs; oa,igh.
This half term we will be focusing our work on the Julia Donaldson story, The Smartest Giant in Town.
The children have been working superbly in phonics.
Many of the children are able to blend familiar sounds together to help with their reading and writing. They are extending their phonic knowledge and becoming confident to write simple sentences independently. They have written some great little stories and information facts this half term. The links below will give more information on phonics and activities to help your child at home. We have recently been working on the following digraphs: ch,sh,th,ng,ee,oo,or,ai
In maths we have continued to work on more formal addition and are starting to learn our number bonds, starting with ways to make 5. We have been extending our work to include numbers to 20. We have also been doing a lot of work on practical aspects of maths and have started working on measuring length and weight and becoming familiar with the associated language., for example, heaviest, lightest, longest, shortest etc. This half term we will be doing more work on size and also doing shopping to relate to our class story focus.
On Friday afternoons we are continuing to have outside PE so as the weather is colder please could you provide your child with a dark coloured track suit. We are suspending our environmental activities during the very cold weather but will continue this again later in the school year.
Please remember to keep working on sounds and reading at home with your child and remember to sign your child's reading record book when they read at home. There are also sounds to work on in the middle of the reading record books. I will be giving the children extra word games during the term for them to play with you to reinforce their learning. Parental support makes such a huge difference to the children's progress so all the extra help you can give them is very beneficial
in helping them progress.
Thank you, Mrs Bowyer
