This term we are focusing on phonics and spelling to ensure children are secure in their knowledge and are confident in their work.
We will be using the story telling approach to hear, map, step and speak two new stories this term. We will take part in a range of drama activities to deepen the children’s understanding of the stories and encourage them to innovate the traditional tales.
We will be continuing to support the children with their Welsh language development and will be taking part in 20 minutes of Spanish Oracy each week.
This term we will be focusing on number skills. We will also be exploring shape, space and measure.
Children will have the opportunity to transfer the skills learnt in maths and numeracy to inquiry based learning and play activities within the classroom.
Inquiry Based Learning
This term we will be taking part in an inquiry-based learning project based on religion and beliefs. We will be exploring how where people live and who they live with can influence who they become. The children will be encouraged to conduct their own research using a range of resources such as books, artefacts and online search engines.
We would love your support with this! If you have any artefacts, photos or information you can share on your families beliefs or religion, we would love to share them with the class to support their learning.
Homework & Online Learning
Homework will now be online via Google Classroom. You will need your Hwb username and password to access this.
Other online tools you may want to use at home are:
Please send children to school with a piece of fruit or veg and a reusable bottle of water each day.
Please ensure packed lunches are healthy. No crisps, chocolate or fizzy drinks please!
PE is still taking place each week for your child but these sessions have been adapted in light of Covid-19. To make things easier and to reduce any risks please ask your child’s class teacher on what day they have PE and on that day you may send your child to school in their PE kit. As the months are getting cooler please think about sending them in a tracksuit with a t-shirt and sweatshirt that they can remove.
If you have any questions or need any support, please contact me via email - IrwinR6@hwbcymru.net
