Firstly I would like to congratulate P5 for the effort that has gone in to their Literacy Circles homework. We have now come to the end of our 6 week block and the general feeling from the class is that they have really enjoyed learning the LC roles and reading their choice of novel.
Our next project is a Pupil Talk which will be prepared during school and home time. The choice of topic is completely up to the individual and should be no longer than 5 minutes with questions and answers at the end. Pupils agreed upon the most appropriate dates to fit their schedules and skills will be taught over the next 2 weeks. I am very keen for this to be an enjoyable experience and should not take too much time to prepare. There will be no reading homework until after the Easter break, instead non-fiction reading will take place in class.
Spelling activities will continue weekly, with the red activity being optional.
There is a maths follow-up sheet that corresponds to learning in class but if pupils feel this is too much to fit into their week then this terms times table (8 x) can be practised instead.
We look forward to continuing with our Victorian project and having Mrs Hollins join our class until 2.3.18.
As always, thank you for your support,
Mrs Watts & Mrs Roy
