The children will be looking at the book, 'Floodland' by Marcus Sedgwick. Children will be considering the impact of language and implied meaning through examine sentence structure.

We will also be focusing heavily on both Spag and handwriting to help reinforce skills learnt last year and build upon them going forward.

Reading

As a class we really enjoy reading, and we will read for at least 20 minutes a day. On completion of reading a book an AR test needs to be completed and this will see how much the children remember.

If you are looking for new books for your child to read, this website is definitely worth a look: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/bookfinder/ . It can suggest books based on genre and reading age as well as new books and children's classics.

Homework

Our homework is given out once a week on a Friday and should be returned by the Wednesday of the following week to allow for it to be marked. It is essential that work is completed as it is selected to support the learning for that week. The homework comprises of either: handwriting, TTrockstars or comprehension.

Times tables

We use Times tables rock stars to support your child's learning. It is essential that they access the website everyday to support their development in the recall of the facts. The quicker your child can recall the information, the quicker they will progress up the leader board.
