  • Spellings

    Published 15/03/24, by Nancy Okai

    Apologies for the lack of consistency spellings the last few weeks! We have had a few off timetable days and theme days meaning hasn't been possible to fit everything in(not that the children probably minded!) But back to it for next week!

    We ask that the children bring in their completed spelling sheets on Friday morning at the latest.

    Children that do not bring in the sheet will spend part of their golden time completing it.

    If you have lost your sheet, please ask for another before Friday!

    Alternatively, practise on a piece of paper at home and bring that to show us! :)

    If there is a legitimate reason for your child to have not completed the spellings / left them at home, please let me know.

    Apart from our common exception words, all our spellings this week are words ending in -ing, doubling the consonant, for prod becomes prodding.

    prodding 

    beginning 

    spinning 

    nodding 

    shrugging 

    dropping 

    skipping 

    running 

    Earth 

    bicycle 

    medicine

  • Neurodiversity Week - Dyslexia Focus

    Published 15/03/24, by Nancy Okai

    Our focus for Neurodiversity Week has been dyslexia. We read Aaron Slater, Illustrator by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIdwQVG0RvU and discussed what it's like to have dyslexia.

    We talked about people we know and famous people who have dyslexia and how they have found ways to overcome challenges they face. For example because Aaron found it difficult to read and write when he had to share a story with his class he drew his story instead.

    We also took part in an activity where we wrote in different ways to experience what it might have been like for Aaron if he was writing his story with words.

    We had some great discussions and thought a lot about how Aaron kept going and found a way to use the things he was good at to help him.

    We ask that the children bring in their completed spelling sheets on Friday morning at the latest.

    Children that do not bring in the sheet will spend part of their golden time completing it.

    If you have lost your sheet, please ask for another before Friday!

    Alternatively, practise on a piece of paper at home and bring that to show us! :)

    It is becoming more common for children to not return the sheet, meaning that many children are missing part of their golden time practising their spellings. If there is a legitimate reason for your child to have not completed the spellings / left them at home, please email me :)

    Apart from our common exception words, all our spellings this week are words ending in -ness. 

    dizziness

    jolliness

    silliness

    bossiness

    sloppiness

  • World Book Day!

    Published 21/02/24, by Nancy Okai

    World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March! We are asking children to bring in their favourite book from home to share with their peers. Children will be asked to describe why this book is their favourite and recommend it to children in the class. They are encouraged dress up as a character from the book they bring, or they could choose to come in clothes they like to read in, but this is not essential. 

     

    During the day we will be completing lessons around 'How to be a Lion' by Ed Vere and taking part in exciting workshops throughout the day. Children will also receive a book token to spend in a local bookstore.
