Welcome back to a new summer term!

In these coming weeks we will be investigating the significance of the sea to Exmouth and looking at how it has and will affect the town. For an in depth look at our learning this term, please see the attached topic web, which includes every aspect of our curriculum.

 

During the first half of the term we are hoping to take the children to the beach on the Exmouth land train. Details of this will be sent out in due course.

 

Reading, Maths home learning and PE kit requirements will continue as previous terms. Thank you for your continual support in your child’s learning.

Your child will receive numeracy and literacy home learning each week.  This is set on a Wednesday, to be handed in on the following Monday.  Spellings are also set each Monday for a test the following week.  If for any reason your child cannot complete their home learning, please inform the class teacher ASAP via your child's 'Home/School Link Book'.

 

We would like to request that you please take every opportunity to help your child develop their reading skills; by listening to them read regularly at home.  It is proven to be highly beneficial to their development if children read for about 20 minutes daily.  Please also help your child to practise their times tables...although they should know (most of…) these by now!

Learning strategies:

 

This is probably the most common strategy used to learn spellings:

Look: first look at the whole word carefully and if there is one part of the word that is difficult, look at that part in more detail.

Say: say the word as you look at it, using different ways of pronouncing it if that will make it more memorable.

Cover: cover the word.

Write: write the word from memory, saying the word as you do so.

Check: have you got it right? If yes, try writing it again and again! If not, start again – look, say, cover, write, check.

There's a really good FREE app which is a fun way to learn some words too - if you have a tablet or smart-phone, try 'spellfix'!

 

You can find out more about the National Curriculum for Maths, Reading, Writing and Science on the 'Parents' tab.

 

All children will continue to have daily Literacy and Numeracy lessons.

 

Your child will receive 2 pieces of home learning each week - one for Numeracy and one for Literacy/topic work. These will be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday.

If you have any queries or problems regarding home learning, please do speak to your child’s teacher. In addition, children may have spellings to take home and learn.

 

Children will have an opportunity to visit the school library each week, and will continue to work towards their Reading Challenge. Your child should have a reading record book where they can record details of books they have read both at home and at school. Please do continue to hear your child read at home, and ensure that they have an appropriate reading book at school with them each day.

 

Please could parents/carers sign off and comment in the Reading Record book once your child has read their book and sign and date when you have heard your child read for 10 minutes or more. There are certificates and prizes for reaching the following book totals:

 

10 books – Bronze Award

20 books – Silver Award

30 books – Gold Award

75 books – Platinum Award
