Maths

This week your child has been given a game to play to reinforce learning done in class. We will return to using the Schofield and Sims books next week.

Spelling

Please help your child to learn the words from spelling list 2. The sheet was sent home a couple of weeks ago. Here are the words in case your list has been misplaced:

Evil e words (The e at the end of the words makes a long vowel sound- h o p  becomes  h o p e)

pope, slope, tube, cube, name game, cape, escape, bake, cake

Closed and open syllable (if the first syllable in a word ends in a consonant, the vowel is short eg   den tist  - the e is short. If the first syllable ends in a vowel, the vowel is long, eg be yond- the e is long)

Atlantic, fantastic, dentist, sunset, electric, beyond, moment, student, protest, slogan

Reading

Maths

Please continue with Schofield and Sims

Reading

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.

Spellings

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.

RE

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.

Philosophy Circle

Today we had our first Philosophy circle. We talked a little bit at first about how we are all different, and that we all process information in different ways. We talked about how important it is to support one another to make good choices.

The children worked in groups to think of questions they would like to discuss as a class. Each group selected their best question, and then the children voted on which question to discuss. The question they chose was:

Why do some people fight in the playground?

The word ‘fight’ was interpreted by the children during the discussion as falling out with or being mean to someone. The children explained their thoughts and opinions clearly. They also listened well to each other and responded well to ideas suggested by each other.
