New Messages for Term 6
P.E. - Please can you make sure your child has the correct PE kit, as some children have been without socks or plimsolls. Our PE days are still Mondays (with our P.E. specialist teacher) and Wednesdays this term. No earrings on those days please. We have also got Sports Day coming up this term, so we are getting very excited and practicing all of our races!
Phonics – We have now completed the Phonics Screening! Thank you for all your hard work at home to practice those cheeky alien words! We will now be doing some revision and alternative spellings in class for our phonics lessons.
Spelling - Spellings are still sent home every Friday, to complete a spelling test the following Friday.
Elephant Class – Term 6
Literacy – This term we are looking at Beegu by Alexis Deacon. There have been some strange things happening in school, and Elephant Class have come across a spaceship crash in the classroom! We even managed to spot some mysterious yellow footprints...
Whilst looking at this text, we will be continuing to focus on structuring sentences, using punctuation (full stops, capital letters, question marks, exclamation marks), and applying our phonics to spelling words. We will be writing our own character descriptions of Beegu's new friend, making our own planets and performing some drama.

Four operations- adding and subtracting, number bonds to 20, multiplication, division, word problems.
