Blog Update 6th January
It has been lovely to have the children back at school for the start of the Spring Term! We have had such an exciting time, even in our short week. We have begun our new history unit, The Shang Dynasty, where we have begun to learn about the concept of communication across time. Around the world humans began to write, some chose more life-like images, and some chose symbols to represent objects. In our lesson, we told stories using ancient Chinese characters.
We have also begun to learn about sound and how the human ear works. We have tested the human ear in multiple ways, finding out how well we can hear through doors and if we are to cover our ears.
Next week, we will focus on homophones in our spelling lessons. These are words that sound the same but have different meanings. This link may help if you would like to have some fun with homophones at home! What is a homophone? | TheSchoolRun
I would like to remind everyone that we do recommend and expect the children to read their school levelled book 3 times per week and for a comment to be written by them or a grown up at home. It is important that the children bring their reading books and reading record back to school each day, this way the adults in school can also support them with their reading. If the children choose to read books from home, we ask that this is as well as their school book. The more they read the school books, the more we can assess and support their reading level.
Have a lovely weekend!
