Palm Class Weekly Reading Champions: week ending 13.7.2018 Josh D Sophie Ally Aimee Oscar Evie Pranav Sienna Harrison Aidan Josh C
12 out of 29 children - Palm Class we seem to have dropped our reading levels. I have spoken to the children about the importance of reading, even at this time of the school year. I know you will support me in this and have set the challenge by next Thursday to have all 29 for a prize. Well done to those children, who have read at least 3 times this week at home! The children are all loving the new reading area, please see pictures below of the area so far!
These are the plans for Palm Class for the Summer Term 2018
Our Topics are: Non fiction texts and responding to them French animals, colours, numbers, foods and parts of the body Division, measures, 2d shapes and properties, money, time and word problems The natural world, creation story and relating to the bible Plants, where they grow from, germination and the long journey they take Rocks – how they are formed, their properties and classifications Continuing Sing Up, music composition and comprehension Settlement and its historical and geographical context Weather pictures and colours Egg art Coding, publisher, web based documents and typing Invasion games and athletics Values, Philosophy for Children, Anti-Bullying and Big Questions
Other things we will be looking at this half term will include:

The Children in Palm Class might like to read: Information books about bodies, pets, friends and family. They may also like to read books about plants, settlements in the local and wider area, Matilda, practice different processing skills on the computer. They may also like to read some athletic and sports books.
You might like to discuss with your children: How you can care for and look after family and friends The names of different plants both in their gardens and wider areas Why we need to keep healthy Why people celebrate birthdays and Special celebrations Rights and respecting rights in school and out of school
To help with our Mathematics work it would be great if you could: Look at 3 digit numbers and recognise the place value of each number Look at different 2D shapes and 3D shapes and talk about their features Look at coins and discuss the coin value Look at an analogue clock and tell the time Discuss the difference between area and perimeter Creating their own number problems and break down ones to solve mentally Times Tables focus on 2,3,5 and then moving onto 4,6,8’s and how the inverse is division Reading and creating data tables for information collecting and demonstration.
To help with our Literacy work it would be great if you could: Encourage the children to proof read and edit their work where necessary Encourage them to write with depth and description as well as joining their handwriting Share your child's reading book at home and discuss the language they may have struggled with. Practice writing the lower case letters correctly Read some different forms of non-fiction texts including reports, newspapers, diary entries, biographies and autobiographies, explanation and recounts.
P.E. Days: In Palm Class our P.E. days this year are on Tuesday and Wednesday each week. Your child will need their P.E. Kit (shorts, a T-shirt and trainers) in school on these days. Most children leave their P.E. kit in school and they are sent home at the end of each half term to wash.
Notes from Home: If you would like any more house notes from home so that you can tell us about your child's achievements please talk to any member of the team. We really value your comments.
Reading Books: Your child will read to an adult in school most days. Please ensure that your child has their book in school each day. Please support your child with their reading and sounds at home by sharing your child’s book with them and making a note in their reading diary. If you spot your child reading and want to send us a picture for our ‘Lost in a book’ display, that would be fantastic.
Concerns or Worries: Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office or in person at the beginning or end of the school day if you have any worries or concerns.
