Letters will be coming home this week explaining how your child can access Reading Eggs, TT Rockstars and Mathletics.
Reading Eggs is a reading programme that helps children learn their letters and sounds, decoding words and reading comprehension.
TT Rockstars is a programme that helps develop children's multiplication fluency. Your child will also be coming home with a login for Mathletics which is great for reinforcing maths learnt at school.
They are all accessible on computers, tablets and phones. Please promote regular use of these programmes as part of our homework routine. Thank you.
*** Showcase Thursday 6th December 2018***
You are invited to join us for our Memory Box Showcase on Thursday 6th December at 2pm. The children will be able to show you their memory box (which they can also take home with them) and the children will share their learning with you. You are free to take your children home with you as soon as you have finished.
Are you ready to travel back in time?
This half term, we’re taking a trip to the past to discover what life was like at the time when we were born. We’ll also find out how babies change and grow over time. Thinking about our childhoods, we’ll use photos and objects from the past to help us remember special times including weddings and christenings. We’ll talk about our families and share happy memories of people or pets who are no longer alive. Learning about the days, weeks and months of the year will help us to work out how long we will have to wait for our birthdays to arrive! We’ll decide how objects from the past were used and have fun learning games, songs and dances from bygone days.
Help your child prepare for their project
Looking back on the past can be funny, poignant and interesting! Why not get together as a family and share photos from the past, commenting on wacky clothes and happy holidays? Alternatively, visiting a local museum would allow you to see what life was like in the past. You could also play some traditional games from your childhood. Hopscotch, skipping and conkers are all lots of fun!
Our Memory Box topic will include, but is not limited to:
English: Recounts, diaries, rhymes, description and information books.
