Welcome to Class R

On our page you will find class and curriculum information as well as weekly learning reviews. Remember check every week for update
We finished the week by watching the amazing Class 3 assembly. The children loved finding out about what they have been learning and especially enjoyed learning Roman numerals! Us adults were very proud with how beautifully Class R sat and listened. We are planning to start attending Celebration assemblies from next Friday. Please be patient at home time as we will be coming up from assembly to get our bits and then straight out to you!
In Maths this week we have had a focus on number bonds to 5, numbers 6, 7, 8, using 10 frames to show a given number and using our addition machine!
Phonics: We have revisited the phase 2 sounds and have been showing off our knowledge by segmenting and blending real and alien words. We have also begun to learn Phase 3: j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu
We have also focused on the names of the letters - what we say in the alphabet. We link the letter name (what it is called) to the sound it makes (the phoneme).
The children are still loving the short songs from Teach Your Monster to Read : https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/teachers-area/classroom-toolkit/phonics-songs
For RE we continued our learning for our Big Question for this term - What do Christians believe is special about Jesus and the message he brings? We shared the story of Zacchaeus, when he climbed a tree so that he could see Jesus through the crowd. We discussed the Christian belief that if you are sorry and ask for forgiveness God will always forgive you. The children were then asked to think about a time they said sorry.
New morning routine - On a Mon, Wed &Fri please put reading book inside the student planner and into the coloured home group boxes if books need changing. Please do remember to note in their planners when you hear them read - just the book name and page to read next is great!
Plastic wallets are to stay in their bags everyday for post.
We will check your child's progress and change the words as we introduce new phonemes and words through our Phonics lessons.
This is where to look to find a copy of the home learning menu and any weekly suggestions for learning at home. Remember to read with your child every day and record this in their school planner.
Here is the reading menu for this term. They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners, they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge.
We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading in order to complete the whole menu by Easter.
