Week 1 Term 2

Welcome back to school everyone! I hope you all enjoyed some special family time over Easter and the fabulous weather!!



Our Learning


This week we are working on narratives in Literacy, reading and examining what makes great narratives.  To assist with setting writing and prepare for tomorrow, I have asked students to have a look at the abandoned places pictures from The literacy Shed, coming to school tomorrow (Thursday) having chosen a picture they can use to describe the setting.  I have told the students that I do not expect them to write anything as tomorrow we will be creating a graphic organiser to help when we write our descriptive paragraphs.

In maths we are working on multiplication strategies and in science we will begin our  Physical Science unit.

Homework


Spelling Homework
The children will be receiving new spelling lists this week and you will notice that many of them have different coloured lists due to being in a new spelling group this term. If your child has the same coloured words they are repeating their previous spelling group to consolidate unknown sounds.  Please feel free to discuss any questions you have about their spelling or the synthetic phonics spelling approach (Diana Rigg PLD) we use at OLC.  

Maths Homework
It is expected that Unit 11 to be completed this week for homework. Maths books were handed back to the children yesterday.  We will continue with aiming to complete a unit each week and handing them on Friday mornings for me to review.  I appreciate your time to mark your child's work as they complete it so that they can receive immediate feedback.  Please feel free to asterisk concepts that your child finds difficult so that I can acknowledge and cater for this for future planning and teaching. 



Reminders

This Friday the children are invited to attend school in casual dress to raise funds for those in need within our local community. The children are asked to bring a gold coin donation for wearing their casual dress.
