A warm welcome to our class page!
Welcome back to Term 6 everybody! Where has the time gone? I can't wait to see what this term has in store! Please have a look below to find any important information you may need for this term and more. I will upload any spellings or extra practise tasks to our Woodpecker Home Learning Page.
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! You will have a variety of books to be reading at home including a 'Reading for pleasure' book from the library, a phonics books and an accelerated reader book. If you have an accelerated reader book you will have your zone and username and password in the back of your reading records. Please do not quiz at home. This needs to be done in school. The children choose their own accelerated reader book within their own zones.
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 end of each week when we have completed them on a Friday morning and we will have a Times Table challenge the following week after you have practised. These skills will be practised all year to ensure we have mastered them by the end of the year.
You have your Times table rock star logins so please make the most of using these for rapid recall.
At Woodchurch we follow 'White Rose Maths'. In Maths this term we are continuing our work with addition and subtraction to start with and then we will be moving on to revision of multiplication and division and then properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Again any extra support or information for Maths will be on our Home Learning Page.
Phonics and spelling!
Everyone is in their phonics and spelling groups so please get in contact if you would like to know more about this. If you would like to know how your child is doing please get in touch. Spelling challenges will be done in school every week on a Friday and these will be based upon their learning from the previous week. Spellings will be from Friday- Friday to give you time to practise over the weekends too. Don't forget about spelling shed too as our spellings are uploaded to there as well for you to practise and play games!
This term we are looking at the topic 'Coastline'. In the Coastline project, we will use maps to learn about the location of the world’s seas and oceans and keys to learn about map symbols. We will also find out about the directions on a compass. As well as this we will learn about the human and physical features of a coastline, including the effects of erosion and how to stay safe when visiting the coast. We will have the opportunity to learn about the work of the RNLI, what happened to the SS Rohilla and about the coastal town of Whitby, including how Captain Cook is linked to the town.
