Welcome back to the Spring Term Woodpeckers!
It was so lovely to see your smiling faces back this week and to hear about all of the fun you had in the Christmas holiday. Thank you to you and your very kind parents for our Christmas gifts and wishes.
We are now looking forward to an exciting new term full of fun and learning.
Our new topic is called 'What's Cooking?' We will be using some food themed texts for our English lessons, starting with the Gingerbread Man next week. We are also very excited to be having a 'chocolate day' in February and later in the term we will be learning about the Great Fire of London which started in a bakery.
Spring Term Home learning
At the end of last term, you took home a sheet of spellings to learn. Please keep practising these over the coming weeks. Try to write the words in simple sentences using cursive handwriting. We will be reviewing these words in school and will re-assess them towards the end of the first-half term.
Please learn to confidently say the talk 4 writing texts when they are sent home. This really helps with writing development.
Please continue to read your reading books every day. Continue to focus on developing fluency and comprehension.
Please remember to record reading in the reading diaries. Also, practise reading the common exception words (see bottom of page).
Keep practising your cursive handwriting, especially your target letters. We like using Skywriter on www.ictgames.co.uk to help us learn our letter formation (remember to select the 'cursive' font).
Keep practising your number bonds up to 10 then 20 too!
