Miss Rennolds will put a daily message on dojo between 8-8.15 on school days commencing 06/01/21.  Children will then need to log on to their google classroom account (details will be messaged to you privately on dojo.)  When work is completed it will need to be turned in.  Instructions below.

Street Detectives

This way or that way?   Where should we go?  Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields?  Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out about how the streets have changed since our mums and dads were young.  Perhaps your grandma or grandpa lived locally or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop?

 

Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes.  What can you see?  What can we find?  Whereabouts do you live?  Do you know your address?

 

Find out how to write instructions, directions adverts and learn rhymes all about our local community from different times.

 

When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps om and paintbrushes at the ready.

 

Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras, it’s time to start investigating.

Times Tables– We will complete maths drills in class to test the children on their times tables in school.  To begin with we encourage the children to write a multiple list down the side of their page until they can recall the calculations off by heart. See below for sheets to print and complete at home.

Ways in which you can help your child
Reading, reading and more reading! Please encourage your child to read as often as possible. Listen to them and ask questions about the text to develop their understanding. Make sure they understand the meaning of unknown words and enjoy as many different types of books as possible.  It is also important that you read to your child so they can be exposed to a rich vocabulary and hear how books should be read.

Below is a great website with a detailed list of books perfect for this year group.
