Homework this week is Maths. For this first week of the new year we have given the children their log in user name and password for their Times Table Rockstar account. If you are able to access the internet at home please have a go at practising x2 and divide by 2 across this week.

This week is our European Languages Week and we have been focusing on Croatia. As part of our fact finding, we learned about different traditional Croatian playground games and went outside to play them too.

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
Me and You
Both of these texts are written by Anthony Browne.
