Welcome to Picasso Class
A Warm welcome
How are we in the final half term of the school year already?
Time is going so quickly, but probably because we are so busy.
In the final half term we are going to be looking at Mayans and Aztecs. We will be looking at temples, beliefs, and how their civilisation and culture differs from ours.In Science we will be looking at life cycles, plants and animals, and food chains.
The crazy story of Oliver and Seawigs continues in English, where we will write stories from diiferent perspectives, and look at more examples of diary entries.
With Sports Day, the Summer Fayre, pedestrain skills training for Year 3, multi skills, and finding out who will teach us next year its going to be another incredibly busy half term.
Fingers crossed it will be hot and sunny for Sports Day!
Oliver and the Seawigs- what an unusual adventure!
Picasso Class Reading Rewards- Be a Reader Leader
We love reading in Picasso class. It helps us explore new worlds, meet new characters and friends, and most importantly, it helps us relax and enjoy the world of literature.
To help the children to progress with their reading, home reading should take place daily as this will help them to develop their word level reading and reading fluency over time. As a way of encouraging the children to read at home, Picasso class are using a reading reward system. The children have been asked to read at for at least 10 minutes each day. This should be recorded in their planners each day along with the book and pages they have read. The children can write this in their planners themselves to enable them to take responsibility for their own learning but it must be signed or initialled by an adult to proof they have completed their reading each day.
The reading reward system will work as follows:
Read at least 3 times a week at home and earn 3 team points.
Read at least 5 times a week at home and earn 5 team points.
Read EVERY DAY at home – earn 7 team points and become a Star Reader!
If children read every day at home and it is evidenced in their planners, they will receive a raffle ticket and be entered into a raffle draw with the opportunity to win a prize at the end of each half term.
Planners will be checked every Monday so please ensure they are kept up to date!
Thank you for your support.
Mr Watson will soon be launching the 100 book reading challenge in class- keep your eyes open.
