Robins week beg. 12th June

Date: 8th Jun 2023 @ 5:57pm

Robins have settled straight back in after the half term. We have started our new writing unit based on the book Big Blue Whale by Nicola Davies. Our writing this half term will focus on gathering facts about whales, and writing persuasive reports about them. We have also begun our new reading unit based on the book When I met a whale by Michael Morphurgo.

The children are looking forward to our trip to the World Museum in Liverpool on Thursday 22nd June. Our focus will be Ancient Civilisations but we will also enjoy a tour of the aquarium which ties in nicely with our English topics. 

Please remember to read with your child for 10 - 15 mins daily and record in diary if possible. Also take a look at their reading target which is on a sticker in their diary, some children may have the same target for a few weeks to work on. This term we will be mainly focusing on vocabulary development. 

Spellings for next week will continue to include words from the Statutory Year 3/4 word list. These spellings are hard and often don't link to any of the patterns that we have already covered this year. Therefore we have been looking at different strategies to help us to learn them e.g. looking for smaller words within the word to remember, looking for double letters, drawing around the word, drawing images to help us remember how to spell tricky parts of the word etc.   

build, calendar. circle, describe, different, difficult, disappear, early

Spelling quiz next week will be on Friday 16th June

Remember to encourage your child to have a go at the spelling and multiplication games suggested below. 




Use this website below to revise x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and to focus on learning x8. The children have a x8 times tables sheet for homewowrk this week.
