W/C 15th April

Welcome back!

This week starts with an Inset Day on Monday, so we will welcome back the children on Tuesday morning. Please can all children remember to wear their PE kits to school.


Literacy in Ash

This week we will be doing some independent writing. I will hand out an updated spelling list of the Yr 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 words.

We will start our new text after we return from our residential. 


Literacy in Maple

In Maple Class we will be starting our new text this week, The Iron Man written by Ted Hughes. PLEASE DO NOT READ AHEAD! I am keen for the children to come fresh to this new text and carry out some prediction work so it's crucial they do not read it ahead of lessons, if they don't already know it. 

The illustrated version is quite good for this age, especially the version illustrated by Laura Carlin who is an artists we studied in the Autumn term. These are readily available at all good bookshops, online on Amazon brand new or second hand, or it can be loaned out of any local library. As always, it is so helpful for all the children to have their own copies so they can read along, look closely at the text and refer to it while they are writing. But please do not worry if this is not possible, I have a few copies in the classroom, and the children can always share. In this first week back, we will be familiarising ourselves with the first chapter by using questions to open a story.
