11th– 14thFebruary 2019
Dear Parents / Carers,
Here is a brief outline of the learning we will be covering in the coming week.
We will continue with the topic ‘Meals’. The children will be learning about the meaning of the Our Father prayer and using this to write their own prayers to thank God for the gifts in their lives.
Home Learning: Say the “Our Father” prayer at home with your child and help them to understand the meaning of each line. E.g. ‘And forgive us our trespasses’ – they could think about how they say sorry when they have done something wrong.
This week we will be concentrating on completing our non-fiction books about ‘The Seasons’. The children will be learning about an index - its format and how they are used. They will compile their own index for the books they are making.
The sound of the week is: ‘ur’ fur, turn and Thursday
The word of the week is: ‘here’ e.g. happy excited rabbits everywhere
Home Learning: Please continue to hear your child read every day. Reading is a pleasurable activity and children enjoy talking and answering lots of questions about the book they are reading. Perhaps you could share the reading by taking turns reading a page or a line each. Please continue to help your child to learn their weekly spellings.
This week the children will continue to focus on O’clock times and will be introduced to telling half past times on analogue and digital clocks. They will then use this knowledge to solve time problems using RUCSAC (Read, Underline, Calculate, Solve, Answer, Check)
Home Learning: Help your child to check an O’clock time on a digital clock and on an analogue clock. E.g. 8:00am / 8 O’clock
- St Therese class assembly is on Tuesday 12thFebruary 2019 at 9.30am in the school hall. We look forward to seeing you there.
Thank you, once again, for your continued support.
