Literacy

On Mondays, we will practise our Active Spelling strategies in class.  Tuesday and Thursday are our Talk For Writing sessions - this is our new focus strategy that will help advance both our story-writing and writing construction skills. During these lessons, we will continue to improve the grammar of our sentences using our developing knowledge of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs whilst using talk and pictures to structure our written stories. On Wednesdays, we have Reading and Reading Comprehension of our Reading Books. On Fridays, pupils will have a weekly Spelling assessment.

Big Maths rotations will improve our time tables using our Learn-Its in class and practising at home. We will continue to develop Addition, Subtraction, Division and Multiplication skills using larger numbers and examine links of division with multiplication.
