Planners 

Just a quick reminder that Reading Diaries should be signed by the child's guardian, it is good preparation for when they go to secondary school. Planners should be used by the children for various reasons such as recording homework and reading, extra-curricular clubs they attend and any other information they deem to be relevant. 

Times table rockstars (TTR) and Read Theory 

TTR is fantastic for the children recalling their multiplication and division skills. If these skills are cemented then it will help with their overall maths. I will regularly be setting 'Battle of the Bands' competitions e.g. girls vs boys, Year 5 vs Year 6 etc.

 

Read Theory is a website we have recently introduced.
It is a website to assist with their reading comprehension and we are already seeing the benefits with the pupils using it. 

Bookopoly

Mrs Peters and I have created a 'Bookopoly' board to encourage reading. Each child will have a 'playing piece', and their aim is to read their way through the challenges. Once they have completed three challenges they will be rewarded a raffle ticket to put into a jar. From then on, for every two challenges they complete they will be able to put in one raffle ticket. The raffle will take place during the last week of term before the Christmas break. I am regularly adding to our class library however, if you have any old children's books at home that you would like to donate or loan us until the end of the year that would be appreciated. Thank you.
