15/01-19/01

Hi All,

Homework will continue in the same format as term 1. The children have the week to complete their booklets and the booklets will be collected on Friday.

Reading homework: Every Monday the children will pick a new book for the week. A reading log sheet has been sent home with the book. Please listen to your child read for around 5mins every night. Sign the log after each session and write in the page you have stopped on as a reminder. After the 5mins of reading ask your child some questions based on what they have just read.

In class we are starting a new reading program called PALS. PALS stands for Peer Assisted Learning Strategies. Each child will begin on the class reader 'The New Suit' and will read the book in pairs and act as a 'coach for each other.

International week: For international week which is taking place next week the class are learning about the country of Russia. In class we are completing a mini project on Russia, but I would encourage parents to try to start a discussion about Russia with your child and to look up for fascinating facts on Russia with your child.
