A warm welcome to our class page!
Welcome back everybody! I hope that you have had a wonderful half term and you are refreshed and ready for another term of fantastic learning! Please see the below information about our learning for the term and any other important information. Please let me know if you ever have any questions or queries by getting in contact with the school office and I will be able to respond to you.
Reading underpins everything we do. I expect you to read every day, for at least 10 minutes and to discuss what you have read with somebody. You must also have your reading records signed daily (we will be checking everyday) so you can move up our Reading Rocket Challenge and receive rewards and prizes! Our Reading Rocket Challenge is starting this term now that we have settled back into school life!
This year our focus is learning our 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables, including knowing them in and out of order and the corresponding division facts e.g 2 x 3 = 6, 6 ÷ 3 = 2. I will send your Times Tables home at the beginning of each week and we will have a Times Table challenge every Friday!
This term, the children will get their logins for their Times Table Rock Star accounts where they will be able to refine their skills by playing games and move up levels. We will stick these in the back of their reading records so you have them to use. The link for the website is at the bottom of this page.
At Woodchurch we follow 'White Rose Maths'. In Maths, we will be continuing our learning on Addition and Subtraction and then will be moving on to multiplication and division. Any resources that I feel might be helpful, I will upload here to support further learning at home.
Phonics and spelling!
This term, we will have two phonics and spelling sessions per day in the lead up to our phonics screening assessment in week 6. Please continue to practise the sounds that are sent home and any words you are given too. These must be brought into school everyday please. Your weekly spellings will be sent home on a Monday and tested on a Friday. These are words from focus sounds from your phonics or spelling group.
This term, we will be looking at the topic 'Beat, Band & Boogie. We will be creating our own marching band, learning about different sounds, singing, making balloon drums and much more!
Our main texts this term are ' The Pied Piper of Hamelin' by Michael Morpurgo and 'The Steadfast Tin Solider' by Hans Christian Andersen. We will be linking these across Connected Curriculum and English lessons.
