Week beginning 3rd May 2022:
We will continue to complete our spelling tests on a Thursday and our times tables test will take place on a Friday.
Please note that our PE day this week are on Monday. Please come to school in your PE uniform as usual on this day.
Swallows class are spending time exploring our whole school project based on Global Neighbours. We will be finding out as much as possible over the next few weeks.
In maths we are going back to fill gaps in addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication and division, to support the children ready for their SATs papers.
Read Write Inc
You will have noticed this week that your child may have changed RWI groups or come off the scheme to move on to Pathways to Read. If you have any concerns about how your child is progressing with their reading, please come and speak with me so that I can share more personalised strategies.
Please spend 10 – 20 minutes reading each day. This can be a combination of Read Write Inc and bedtime story books. Please remember the importance of your child listening to YOU read during this time too.
For the next two weeks we are going to focus on spelling contractions. It is crucial that the children learn to join the letters accurately and where an apostrophe is the letters either side of it cannot be joined.
This week’s spellings to be quizzed on Thursday 5th May are listed in your blue reading diary.
Please complete your times tables work sheet for this week. Some children have now moved on to learning their 5 x tables! Well done! If you would like your child to progress quicker, please access times tables rockstars to support their times tables knowledge.
