Maths

This week, the children have been learning about Spatial Reasoning. We have been looking at shape, matching shapes by their properties and understanding that sometimes we need to rotate the shape to match.

-Look at the following models. Which one matches? Why? Do they need to be rotated?

 

-Make some basic three shape models. Can you make two the same? Can your adult or sibling find the match?

-Ask your adult or sibling to make a basic model. Can you match theirs by making your own?

 

Reading

 

Library Books

Children will be sent home with a library book on Thursday to enjoy over the weekend with their siblings/family. Please return this on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.

 

RWI Book Bag Books

Children will be sent home with a RWI Book Bag book that matches the one they have been reading with adults in school. Books will be sent home on Thursday and should be returned to school on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.

 

It is important that all books are read more than once (we recommend three times) so that your child can first decode, then grow fluency and comprehension. Please record all reading in your child’s diary. 

 

(Not all children will be sent home a book. Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and confidence in blending CVC words.)
