Term 4 Learning

Welcome back :)


Our topic this term is 'The Great Fire of London'. I wonder whether you can come up with any ideas on what you think might have happened?

We have an exciting Experience Day on the 7th March - look out for letters coming home soon.

We have also put some home learning to make a Tudor house in your child's home learning book. We cannot wait to see them.



Our English learning this term will be starting our topic with the book 'Vlad and the Great Fire of London' by Kate Cummingham.

Vlad and the Great Fire of London (A Flea in History) : Cunningham, Kate,  Cunningham, Sam: Amazon.co.uk: Books

We will be using this book as a stimulus when writing our own stories. We will be focusing on using capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for a name, full stops at the end of a sentence, spaces between words so it can be read back and becoming more independent in our writing. We will also be focusing on applying all our phonemes and common exception words, we are also focusing on our presentation and handwriting, always trying to write on the line. We will also be continuing to use 'and' in all our sentences and beginning to use this to list. We are happy if the children write in print and not cursive - do what is natural to them.


Reading and Phonics

This term in Phonics we will be continuing to focus on Phase 5 phonemes which are alternative graphemes. We will be applying these in our reading and also including comprehension questions to make sure we are understanding what we are reading fully. Children will have a reading book matched to their phonics ability for you to read at home. They will also have a word box which links to the phonic sounds they need to practice. Please engage in the whole school reading challenge. We expect every child to read at home at least 5 times a week.

How can you help at home?

- Listen to your child read 5x a week. Discuss the story with them and make sure you write in their reading record every time they read so that it can count towards our Reading Bug challenge!
