This term we will continue to introduce a variety of different spelling patterns. We have sent home a termly overview of the spellings for this term. You can also find them on our classroom doors and the 'spelling' section of our class page.

 

Reading-

Zarafa: A Giraffe's True Story: Amazon.co.uk: Allin, Michael:  9780747262091: Books

 During term 3 we continue with our carousel approach to guided reading. Your child will be part of a small group of no more than 6 children. Each week your child will complete the following activities: 

  • Read with an adult (during this time we will tick off the number of 'reads' your child as done at home, listen to them read and change their guided reading book.)
  • Handwriting practice 
  • Power of reading activities (one activity will be based on our class text and one activity will be a phonics activity)
  • Library (Your child can select a library book to take home)

 This term our guided reading activities will be based around the Zeraffa Giraffa by Dianne Hofmeyr. It is a true story about a giraffe who was sent as a gift to the King of France by the Great Pasha of Egypt in the 1820s. We will read this text as a class and complete 2 activities per week based on the text.

Fractions:

  • To find half, third, quarter of shapes and objects.

How you can help at home

Reading

We ask that you read with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. Please record any reads you have done with your child in their reading record as we will be continuing the reading bug challenge.

Each week your child will have one reading session with an adult.  During this session, your child will change their school reading book. The class teacher will let you know your child’s reading day in the first week back so that you know which day to have the book ready in their book bags.

Your child will also have one library session each week where they are able to choose a library book. The children have free choice with their library books. Again, during the first week you will find out your child’s library day.

Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.

Maths

The children will be continuing with maths planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 1.  Please practise your child’s maths facts at least 3 times a week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than 4 weeks then we will intervene at school.

Learning Overview

To see example questions for each level please visit the maths curriculum section of our website.

 

Spelling

Every Friday your child will write 8 spellings their yellow homework book.

They will then be tested on these spellings the following Friday. The spellings will also be on our classroom doors and on our class page on the website. The tests will be stuck into their yellow homework books so you can see how they have got on.

The spellings will contain the new sound patterns that we will be learning in class and are a way of reinforcing these spelling rules. Please practise at least 3 times each week with your child.
