What are we reading in Cherry Class?
We will be enjoying two texts this half term as part of our Pathways lessons. ‘Seal Surfer’ by Michael Foreman in Pathways to Write and ‘The Sea Book’ by Charlotte Milner in Pathways to Read. The children will be working on improving their writing styles and build up to writing their own letter. There will also be a focus on understanding how the use of the language, structure and presentation have contributed to the text.
PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please come to school dressed in full PE kit on these days. We will be doing a range of athletics and also target games skills to prepare for a range of invasion games in KS2.
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 are split into different Read Write Inc. groups whilst in school and will have a different book focus for that week which can be accessed from home via Oxford Owl as well as sent home in their book bags each week. Their planners and books need to go home every night and come back into school every morning. We encourage all of our children to read five times per week.
Each Friday, we will complete a spelling test on the words taught that week. 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, a new assignment will be posted on a Friday, along with a practise 'Look, Cover, Write' sheet.
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.
