We recommend that children read at least 3 times a week and once to an adult. This will help to improve the fluency of their reading as well as supporting both their comprehension and spelling.
Over the course of the week, children will take part in a range of Guided Reading activities. These will focus on developing their key reading skills of: Retrieval, Inference and Authorial Choice
We request that children keep their full PE kit in school throughout the week.
Our PE days for this term are:
Wednesday and Thursday
In English, the children will be studying The Chocolate Tree, a Mayan folktale and The Highwayman, a narrative poem. Using these texts as a stimulus, they will be writing for a range of purposes and producing different genres of writing.
