Wow, what a wonderful week it has been!
Read, Write Inc.
We have been really enjoying our new Read, Write, Inc groups! We have been practising spotting our sounds and then using fred talk to read words. We have also been continuing to use our fred fingers to help us write the words in our books, but not for the red words, because we all know you can't fred a red! We have been working hard on our writing and making sure all our letters are formed correctly. In your child’s reading folders, you will find some set 1,2 and 3 sounds and also some red words. Any practice with these would be wonderful!
Reading at 3 - Every Friday at 3 our doors will be open for you to come in and read with your child, please note, this will be for the full 15 minutes and children should not leave any earlier. Their books will be set up and ready for you to come in and enjoy listening to their wonderful reading.
Reading folders - All children will bring home two books, one being a RWI home book. Children are expected to try and read this three times during the week to ensure they are building on their reading fluency. The RWI home books will be changed, by an adult, every Friday.
The other book (with the coloured sticker) should be changed independently by the child themselves - first thing in the morning is a great time to do this!
Please ensure that the reading folders are being placed in the reading-coloured trays, so we can read with your children and ensure books get changed. Thank you for your support with this!
Please listen to your child read as much as possible at home and record this in their reading records. Every week, one child from each class will receive a reading certificate in our Chilton Heroes assembly.
We also had a fabulous story-telling week!
This week we have been looking at mass! We started the week by ordering pictures of what we thought were lightest to heaviest. We explored balancing scales to see whether objects around the classroom were heavier or lighter than one another. We also had a go at trying to see which objects weighed the same. Making them equal. We then weighed items, with cubes in the balancing scales. For example, one pencil = 2 cubes. We ended the week by taking part in number day! We read the story equal smequal, again looking at what makes objects equal and using ordinal numbers when taking part in races! We then read the story 1 is a snail and 10 is a crab, where we used the pictures to find the place value of two-digit numbers! What a busy maths week we have had!
Next week we will be looking at capacity!
