Reading: Listening to your child regularly is still a vital part of their learning journey as you can hear any misconceptions and provide lots of opportunities for comprehension by asking them about their reading, likes and dislikes, events, characters etc. Please encourage your child to read daily and complete this in their reading diary. Encourage your child to reflect on their reading and complete their book review in the free reading diary. Your child will not be able to change their book if it has not been signed by an adult at home or they haven’t read to you at least once.  Please ensure they complete their reading diary correctly, the teaching team provide support in school but it is vital that they are given support at home with this. They should be recording the date and page numbers they have read every time they are reading, whether to themselves or someone else. The children also now need to complete their book review after every book they have read. There are a basket full of blank book reviews in class. These will then be stapled to the page they have been recording reading that book on. Unfortunately they will not be able to have a new reading record until it has been completed correctly.

Please check the blog for an insight into your child’s week at school.

Thank you for your continued hard work, effort and support with your children at home.

Topic Homework.

To be returned on Tuesday 9th January 2018.

As the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Colombia, famous explorers and pirates over this half term, as part of an extension piece of homework (which must be completed), the children are to design a fact file for a pirate or explorer of their choice.

There is a list of pirates and explorers they can choose from below. However, they can find their own pirate or explorer to make a fact fie for. 

The fact file must include: 

  1. What their name is.
  2. When they were born.
  3. When they died.
  4. Where they were from.
  5. What were they famous for?
  6. An interesting fact about them.
  7. Pictures

The children can add anything else they want to as well.

This fact file could be completed in a variety of formats. It is up to the children to decide. They could use the computer/ iPad or handwrite the fact file. It is entirely up to them.

Famous explorers

Famous Pirates

Sir Francis Drake

Ching Shih

Christopher Columbus

The Barbarossa Brothers

Ernest Shackleton

“Blackbeard’ Edward Teach

Neil Armstrong

“Long Ben’ Henry Every


Below is optional:

If the children want to (this part is not compulsory) they could also make a fact file on Colombia.

Things they could include are: -

  1. The official name of Colombia
  2. Capital City
  3. Language they speak
  4. Money they use
  5. The Climate
  6. How big it is.
  7. How it is related to Christopher Columbus.
  8. About the indigenous people
  9. 5 interesting facts about Colombia.
