Welcome to Term 6!


We have recently enjoyed our History Week (week beginning 27th June) and we hope that you had the chance to visit our exhibition of all the work we had done during this week. Thank you to the parents who did a project or made a fantastic model of Leeds Castle; these added interest to our exhibition.


All children in Rose Class enjoyed our trip to Leeds Castle; we had a fantastic time and the weather was really good to us. We enjoyed meeting King Henry VIII, the maze, the workshop where we acted in the Swan Princess and the castle tour.  We also enjoyed the playground where we liked the climbing equipment and the zip wire.  We also had a visit from a baby dinosaur and a full size T-Rex called Millie.  There was much excitement in our school hall!


Children will continue to take a reading book home to read to parents!  Please help and encourage your child to sound out and blend the sounds together to enable them to read simple words and sentences. Once they have mastered this skill, please encourage them to read more fluently by 'Fred Talking' in their head and then reading the word.  Please also try and check understanding of what the children have read by asking questions about the text. On a Friday, the children will be sent home a book to share for the weekend.  Your child's Planner needs to be in school everyday and signed at the end of each week, please.  We hope that you continue to enjoy reading and sharing these books with your child.  Happy reading!


We are continuing to consolidate our knowledge of sounds and applying this knowledge to read and write everyday in our Read, Write Inc lessons, so please encourage your child to use this knowledge at home.   We also do lots of counting and recognition of number to 20 and beyond.  We are beginning to solve simple problems by counting on and back on a number line to find the answer and starting to understand simple number sentences and the different ways to make 10.  We have also learnt simple doubling and halving of numbers to solve problems in the quickest way and looked at sharing into equal groups.  In Shape, Space and Measure, we have been learning about how to order items by weight or height and beginning to understand capacity - which container holds more, and using the language full, empty and half-full accurately.  We have also looked at telling the o'clock times and spoken about the hour and minute hands. Please encourage your child to practise these skills at home too, thank you.


We continue to encourage children to 'grow their brains' and to challenge themselves to move their learning on to the next step and it would be good if you could please ask your child about their day at school.
