Phonics help for parents

 

Here is a useful video with how to pronounce the sounds in words if your child is struggling with sounding out words when they are reading and you are wanting to help them with sounding out the words:

Reading

 

We want children to have a whole diet of reading which can be fulfilled through:

Reading their school book, in which most words will be phonetically decodable for them so they are able to read this themselves (some with support). They will also contain some words that aren't decodable but they will have exposure to these words and enable the opportunity for sight reading. This also allows us to consistently track the progress of pupils throughout school. We listen to children read every week and will move the child on book bands when we feel appropriate. We appreciate that the school reading books may not be suited to all children's interest which is why we encourage the whole diet of reading and not just a focus solely on the banded books. Please note there are different numbered levels within the coloured book band however these are all grouped together so sometimes your child may have a level 9, then 7 then 8 for example.

 

Their school library book and any books they read at home for pleasure for reading. This allows children to read or have read to them a book that interests them. The more genres of books they are exposed to the better.

 

Whole class reading book and other related books within English and Mission lessons in school. These provide all children the opportunity to develop their reading comprehension skills and make their writing purposeful when linked to a text.

 

Below are recommended reading lists for year 2 and year 3 that are good quality texts for their age group.

 

There is also the reading VIPERS poster which we use in class and reminds them of the reading skills they use whilst reading.

 

Finally there is a document containing reading questions for parents to ask and discuss whilst reading with their child to help further develop their reading skills at home.

 

If you discuss any of these questions with them, please include it in their yellow homework diary. If your child has read their school reading book, please write in their yellow homework diary when they have finished so that we can change their book for them and comment on any words they had to sound out, got wrong, corrected reading on etc. Please also keep a log of any other books they are reading at home in their Homework diary as we love to discuss these with children.

Half Term Information Sheet

Please find below the Summer 2 Information Sheet for parents/carers, which contains general information about the year and this half term.

Homework Booklet

Please find below the Homework Booklet for Summer 2. The home learning activities are linked to the areas we are focusing on in class, and have been carefully chosen to develop different skills in relation to a variety of curriculum subjects. All homework will be shared on a Friday and displayed proudly in our classroom.

 

For the mean time we are asking if parents are able to take photos of the children's homework and either upload them on to Google Classroom or send me an email with the photo and the children can share the work with the class this way. I apologise this is more work however we want to keep cross contamination to a minimum and believe this will help to do this.Thank you 

Special Mentions and CHAS

Every Friday we come together as a school to celebrate the children's hard work across our school; we do this by awarding one (on exception more than one), child per class Special Mention, and one child per class CHAS recognition. The child will be rewarded a badge for each and if given CHAS will be able to take home our CHAS dragon for the week and CHAS book to write about what adventures CHAS gets up to with you.

During our celebration assembly we also celebrate weekly birthdays and award the winning classes with the Eco and Attendance awards. Additionally, children have the opportunity to try their spellings and/or times tables to be able to progress to the next level in spellings and/or times tables in school.

What we did last half term:

Maths:

In Maths we are looking at shape. We have been making patterns with 2D shapes and can name their properties. We can also name 3D shapes and have been sorting them and every day objects. We can name the properties of 3D shapes and make patterns with them.

We have now moved on to measurement and have looked at different equipment we can use to measure and the different units of measurement. We have used trundle wheels, metre rulers, 30cm rulers and tape measures to measure different every day objects.

We have also been measuring the mass and capacity of objects.

We know that we measure the weight of solid objects using different equipment such as a metric scale and weighing scales. We know that some of the units of measurements we use are g and kg. We measured the weight of objects in the classroom and recorded the weights of them.

We know that we can measure the volume of liquids using equipment such as measuring cylinders and measuring jugs. We measured different amounts of water outside on the playground and recorded the measurements in ml and l.

  

English:

In English we are looking at leaflets. We have been looking at lots of examples and know the purpose and audience of them. We have identified the features of them and are now going to do some research to make our own. We have come up with our own company names and slogans to go on our leaflets advertising a safari in Kenya.

We have planned out where our information will go on our leaflet and we are now going to write up our facts on our leaflets.
We wrote up our facts on our leaflets, added pictures and offers too. 
Our final leaflets were fantastic and definitely fit the purpose of persuading someone to come to Africa on a safari.

 

We have now moved on to looking at riddles. We know that riddles are texts that give you clues to try and guess the answer. We know that the purpose is to entertain people and the audience is anyone who would like to read them for entertainment. We have done a cold write of a riddle and have shared some with the class. We enjoyed guessing the answers. We are going to write our own as shape poems about African animals which we are very excited about.

 

We have written up our riddles and enjoyed sharing them with the class.

 

Whole class reading:

In WCR we are reading the Tunnel. This week we have been using our inference skills to make predictions about what we think will happen in the story next. We have also made links to other stories we know based on the characters and what is happening in the story. We have finished the story of the Tunnel. This week we have independently been making inferences from the text based on what we have read. 

This week we have written summaries of the story in our own words. We have written questions to the author, discussed out likes and dislikes and made some comments about the book.

We have written the next chapter to the story imagining that we are the author and are writing what happens next in the story.

 

PE:.

In Outdoor PE we have been practising pour communication and passing skills ready to play team games over the next couple of weeks. We had to make sure we had eye contact and said the persons name before passing the ball as well as making sure they were ready to receive it.

In Indoor PE we have been learning traditional African dances. We learnt how to throw our hips and arms in the same style as the traditional African dancers that we watched. We have also looked at some body percussion which we really enjoyed having a go at. 

 

Music:

In Music we have been looking at traditional African music. We have watched some live clips and are learning an African song. This week we are learning makaton to the song we have learnt. We have added in singing in a round for our song which we are going to perform in the whole school big sing next half term.

We had a Djembe drum workshop and Asha-Lily helped demonstrate how we can play the different sounds on it as she knows how to play it. She then helped the rest of the class with playing it.

 

Mission - Science/Geography/History/Art/DT :

In Mission Geography we investigated the question 'Why is Kenya hotter than Whitley?' We used atlas' and globes to research and found that it is colder here because we are further from the equator. We can explain what the equator is and describe the climate in different countries using a world map to help us.

We have recapped the difference between physical and geographical features and have sorted physical and geographical features of the UK and Africa. We can explain the similarities and differences between the geography of both places.

This week we have done silhouette sunset art of an African sunset with animal silhouettes. 

We also read the story of Handa's surprise and tasted the fruit from the story. The children were fantastic and all tried fruits such as avacado, guava and passion fruit.

In Mission Science we have learnt about food chains. We know that producers are plants that produce their own food and consumers are animals that eat food. We know that predators are animals that hunt their food and prey is an animal that gets hunted.

We produced a film all about Africa as a class showcasing what we have learnt this half term. We shared it with the school and with parents who all loved it too. We were very proud of our film.

 

PSHE:

In PSHE we have been learning about families and how all families are different and can be made up of different people.

We have been learning about British values this week and understanding what our values are as a country.

As part of mental health awareness week we have been looking at what we can do to stay calm and happy.
