What are we reading in Cherry Class?


Our focus text for Pathways to Write will be Stone Age Boy. We will be aiming to write our own stories by the end of the unit whilst learning to use and punctuate speech, use a wide variety of punctuation, develop the use of different subordinating and coordinating conjucntions and build a rich bank of vacabulary all helf term. We will be studying The Dragonsitter in Pathways to Read. We will be looking at text structure as this book is set out as a series of emails and we will also be making inferences. 


We will follow ‘Maths No Problem’ and continue to become super mathematicians, with a focus on multiplication and division.

At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by an adult from Cherry Class. The children still accessing phonics are split into different Read Write Inc. groups whilst in school and will have a separate book focus for that week which can be accessed from home via Oxford Owl and sent home in their book bags each week. Their planners and books need to go home every night and come back to school every morning. We encourage all of our children to read five times per week. We also have a library where children are encouraged to take home a library book that interests them, to share with an adult at home. this is a 'reading for pleasure' book.



Each Tuesday, children are given spellings to practice which will be taught at school. Children are expected to learn these at home also. Children will be taught these spellings during the week, with a focus on applying the rule that is being taught. Children are then expected to practise their spellings further at home using Spelling Shed.


Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school, their usernames and passwords can be found in their School Planner.  All children are familiar with how to use these.
