Welcome to the Eagles
We have had another great week in Eagles. Well done to William for getting this week's trophy and Lilly for being resilient. Also, congratulations to Ethan, Amy and Jessica for being our top 3 Most Valuable Players in the TTRS battle against Owls.
Added to the files is a document called 'Questions to Support your Child's Reading' which contains lots of different questions that you can use to prompt discussions about the books they are reading. In KS2, we use the acronym VIPERS to refer to each of the comprehension domains: Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explain, Retrieve and Summarise. By asking these types of questions, you will be supporting the teaching and learning taking place in school.
Epic! Books for Kids
We have signed up to Epic! Books for Kids which provides a wide range of digital books for free. Click here to login using the Class Code tcz0236 and begin reading books linked to our current science topic: Electricity.
To encourage a love of reading, the children in Eagles can earn loyalty stamps for every book they have read. After they have read 6 books and filled their loyalty cards, they will be entered into a prize draw to win a new book from me. A winner will be selected at random at the end of each half term.
15-20 minutes (minimum) of reading daily (to be recorded in the diary and signed at the end of each week by a grown up); regular practise on Spelling Shed including the 'Look-Cover-Write-Check' sheets (these will be tested on a Thursday); Times Tables Rock Stars 5 minutes daily; plus Purple Mash, SATs Companion and other tasks as and when set.
Please see the files below for knowledge organisers linked to our Victorians topic in history, Electricity in science and Online Safety in computing. It would be really useful to print a copy for your child to refer to at home as they help to explain key concepts, provide timelines of key events as well as provide the children with the topic vocabulary they need to be familiar with. A copy is kept in their books too.
