Here are some of the books we are reading in class

Welcome to Dragonfly Class

Things to do at home:

Reading: Children need to read at home with an adult at least three times a week. This reading should be recorded in their reading records and signed by an adult. In addition, they should be encouraged to read independently as much as possible. When reading with them it is helpful to ask them questions on what they have read to check their understanding and develop their inference and deduction skills. Children receive various rewards for reading at home. We appreciate your support with helping your child with this crucial skill. Reading books and diaries will need to be in school every day.  

Maths homework will be given to the children once a week. It will be My Maths, Times, Tables Rockstars or a worksheet.  Homework will be checked every week and team points given to children who have completed it.

Spellings  This year we are sending home Look. Cover, Write, Check sheets which will have different spelling rules each week. We have asked the children to complete these as homework and ask a grown up about the meanings of the word if they are unsure. Each week, we will ask the children to write the spellings that they have remembered and then put these words into sentences. Our hope is that the children will have moved these words into their long term memory and be able to use them again in the future.

Chilli challenges Homework books contain all the chilli challenges. We generally expect one chilli challenge to be completed a week but appreciate some may be more time consuming. We hope that the children find this a fun way to complete their homework and a good opportunity for them to share their topic learning with you.
