We are reading Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley at school. Please ask your child to talk to you about the characters we have met in the story so far. Please help your child to discuss characters in the stories they are reading at home. An important comprehension skill is to be able to infer information from a text. The text might not say that a character is mean, thoughtful, timid etc, but their actions or words they speak will give you this information about the characters.
We have started to use the WordBlaze scheme this half term. Periodically, the children will be given spelling tests to check their progress. Rather than sending home small lists of words, we have decided to send home several word lists. We will keep you informed about which word lists we are currently working on/ are planning to assess. This week, please help your child to spell the words from word list 1.
As part of our topic about Promises, the children have been learning about Saints. Please talk to your child about the Saint’s name you chose to take if you have been confirmed, and why you chose this Saint. Please help your child to research one Saint, and encourage them to produce a piece of writing with key information about that Saint eg the day they are remembered, why they were chosen to become a Saint. We ask that you discourage your child from printing off information from the internet to bring to school. Instead, please help your child to read about the Saint they have chosen, and help them to produce their own information sheet. We will create a book of Saints in school with all the work.
