In Phonics, we have continued learning new aspects of Phase 5 (alternative ways to spell sounds that the children are already familiar with). Please find below a document showing some of the words we have been reading in class together (I will also provide a paper copy when their reading book is changed). Reading the new phonics at home will help build both your child's confidence and phonics knowledge. Please record any extra reading like this in their reading diary and I can award house points.
Please find below the spellings that will be tested on Friday 31st March, which contain the digraph 'ie' making the /ee/ sound. Practicing these at home will obviously help your child to feel more confident during the spelling test. I will send home a printed list of spellings with your child on a Friday in their home spelling book and they will be available on the class page below, as well as being set on Spelling Shed. House points will be awarded based on your child's performance (both academic and personal achievements).
Our Treasured Text this week is Rumpelstiltskin by Stephanie Peters. The Fantastic Foxes have enjoyed discussing other fairy tales that they have read previously.
In Maths this week we have been learning about mass and volume, using vocabulary such as empty, full, half full, more and less. Could your Fantastic Fox put these glasses in order?
In English, we have finished writing our class model based on Traction Man. We have started planning out the Fantastic Foxes independent writes which they are very excited about!
