We will be reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar and will use this book as a stimulus for our writing. In preparation for the SATs in May, we will be working hard on spellings, punctuation and grammar, as well as improving your child’s comprehension skills. Please read with your child as often as possible to ensure that they can read and understand a range of vocabulary, and please ask them questions about the text and their opinions - why, how, where questions. In response, your child needs to be using evidence from the text - not just retelling events. Ask the children to explain the APE strategy to you.
The children have now secured their arithmetic skills, the recent arithmetic assessment was pleasing. We are going to continue working to improve our speed. Children will also carry on working towards becoming competent at problem solving. It is important that children regularly practice their multiplication and division facts both at home and in school. We will continue to use daily mental maths sessions to develop the children’s confidence. As SATs approach, revision sessions will be used to address key themes and provide the children with an opportunity to explore example questions.
