Maths – In Maths we follow the White Rose hub schemes of learning.
This term we will be looking at what the children have achieved over the lock down and any gaps that need plugging before moving forward with our learning. We may move some of the areas around from what is displayed below so that we can ensure our children have a solid foundation in number and place value, the 4 operations and measure.
English – We follow Ruth Miskin's Read Write Inc
We will be seeing where the children are after lock down and then starting our new Read, Write Inc groups. These will run from Monday to Thursday each week. On a Friday, the children will practise the skills they have learnt in an extended piece of writing. This term we will be focussing on spellings and continuing to use conjunctions in sentences, including and, because, but and so. We will also be targeting how to form letters properly, ascenders and descenders and presentation of writing.
To help at home you could.....
- Practise the RWInc sounds
- Encourage your child to read shorter words speedily
- Listen to your child read daily
- Practise correct letter formation (lower case and capital letters)
- Talk to your child about any new vocabulary you come across in books
