Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home, the reading diaries need to be signed by an adult and this will be monitored on a Monday. Children will have the opportunity to change their levelled book on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. House points and raffle tickets will still be awarded for five or more signatures.
To start off this half term we will be looking at Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We will focusing on basic skills, handwriting and on broadening vocabulary across a range of writing genres.
We will be starting off the term looking at place value, progressing onto addition, subtraction, multiplication and division securing their knowledge in basic skills. In preparation for the year 4 multiplication check we will be dedicating one lesson a week to times tables. We would appreciate it if you could continue this learning at home by encouraging your child to log into timestable rockstars and practicing their froggy maths.
This half term we will be looking at Rocks and soils which links closely to our work in history. Thinking about the formation and classifying different rocks, looking at fossils and considering the local environment.
