Have fun and good luck!

                       The rocket belongs to Bob.

 

                      The Moon's orbit was difficult to break free from.

                       The orbit belongs to the moon.

This week is our European Languages Week and we have been focusing on Croatia.

Mrs Clyne and Mrs Perry have been extremely impressed with how quickly the children have settled into their classes.

 

Reading books and diaries are coming home this week.  Guided reading sessions have already begun.  During the reading workshop the children read books that are one level higher than the books they read at home.  Home readers should be an easy read.  If the children are interested in reading their own books, or books from the library, it is perfectly acceptable to note down the pages in the reading diary.  We will check the reading diaries every week and update the bookmarks, which are displayed in the classrooms.  Reading reward badges will be given out, once the bookmark is full.

 

Our shared texts so far are:

Willy the Wimp

and

Me and You

Both of these texts are written by Anthony Browne.
