Background Information for Parents
This term in Literacy, the children have been working on:

  • Exploring the differences between a fiction and non-fiction text.
  • Identifying the features of an explanation text (please see example below).
  • Writing different types of sentences - particularly exclamation sentences and questions (ensuring that they have the correct punctuation).
  • Spelling words in their contracted form. E.g don't, couldn't, it's, they're (ensuring that they have the apostrophe in the correct place).

Over the next week, we will set tasks linked to the above that will enable the children to produce an explanation text about one of the four Asian animals we have been investigating in school (elephant, tiger, lion or orangutan) .

This term in Numeracy, the children have been working on:

  • Reading Tally Charts.
  • Reading Pictograms
  • Creating bar charts, tally charts and pictograms (see below for examples) -  see https://www.theschoolrun.com/pictograph (you will need to register first)
  • Measuring length and height in CM and M.

Over the next week, we will set tasks linked to these to enable the children to continue to practice the key skills within each area.

Continue to encourage your child to access Spelling Shed, Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots daily. They should read for 30 minutes every day and remember they can now take an AR Quiz at home.
