What we are learning this Autumn term.

We are a very industrious class! We love writing and in Talk for Writing have been exploring dilemma stories. You're welcome to read some of them! Our class text is currently 'Kick' by Mitch Johnson. This really compliments our Geography enquiry focus of; 'In 2022, should there still be people living in slums?' We have explored the issues in detail and great debate has risen around the appropriateness of tourism in these areas. 

We have also got new sketch books - which we love! We have been enjoying our focus on portraiture and the use of tertiary colours. We would love to chat more about our learning with you!

 

 

 

We also love learning beyond the classroom!

Reading

We have some amazing new reading books to inspire our reading!

 

" I love the new reading corner and it has lots of books I want to read - with some great recommendations " Ollie Year 6 

 

Reading helps children to understand the world around them as well as developing their knowledge of vocabulary, spelling, punctuation and grammar. We would like your child to read five times a week – we know it can be tough but be creative and speak to us if you need help! It is important that children read texts that are at an appropriate level to their reading age, but also inspire them to develop a love of literature and become life long readers.

 

The books we provide from school are carefully matched to your child's level of knowledge and understanding. You can further support their comprehension by asking them questions about the plot, characters, setting and vocabulary in the text. 

 

 

How can you help your child at home? 

 

  • Ensure that your child is well-rested and ready to learn
  • Listen to your child read 5 times per week
  • Support your child to learn their weekly spellings
  • Help your child develop their fluency in maths by practising times tables 

 

Please find below some resources to support your child's learning at home. If you would like any addition support with this, please just ask! 

 

 

Spelling

Please support your child to learn their weekly spellings at home. In addition to their weekly spellings, they also need to know all of the Common Exception Words for their year group before the end of the academic year. The following documents and links can be used to support your child with their spellings. 

 

 

Parent ideas for practising spellings

Maths

Help your child develop their fluency and understanding in Maths across the areas. In Class 2, we like to use Mathematical language where we can and explain what method was used.
