Week beginning June 10th
This week I have been administering the Key Stage 1 Phonics Screening Check with the children. Once your child has done the check they will be given a smelly sticker and a 'Phonics Superhero' certificate. All children have tried their absolute best and I am very proud of them all.
In Maths we are sequencing events and consolidating days of the week and months of the year.
We watched a super video on Grace Darling yesterday and the children loved playing 'detectives' looking for clues in a painting about Grace.
Week beginning June 3rd
This week we will begin our new topic of Sun, Sea and Sand.
We will be meeting Katie Morag in a number of different adventures. Katie Morag is a feisty, red-headed girl who lives with her family on the magical Scottish Island of Struay. She is one of life's great enthusiasts. Her determination and stubbornness (in Scotland she'd be described as 'thrawn') land her in considerable trouble at times but also help her find a way out of her difficulties. She can be stormy and tearful, and she can be charming and helpful. She's energetic, one of life's doers. As a sister, she has her failings, but like most sisters, her good points outweigh the bad. Katie Morag has terrific generosity of spirit. There are times when it fades, and others when it can be misdirected. But her family and neighbours, on the whole, adore her; and she, on the whole, adores them.
