We have found that immersing children in a range of creative activities before starting a unit of work means that they are fully prepared, and excited, about the reading journey ahead of them. Through drama, out of school visits, painting and video clips the children have a chance to share vocabulary, ideas and concepts which gives their reading and writing fresh meaning and purpose. Through termly theme weeks we enable the children to explore their passions and interests and encourage them to express their understanding in a variety of ways.

Reading

This year we continue to promote our reading initiatives: -

Accelerated reading - individual, pupil appropriate reading books 

Daily guided reading – deepening understanding of a range of texts and more whole class shared work (started April 2017)

Writing

We are proud of our writing success again this year and will continue to promote excellence by focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

We will be using a variety of techniques to focus on raising standard in this aspect of English, using ‘No nonsense Spelling and Grammar’, and we will be teaching and testing children in a variety of ways every week.

Today we had Dr Nikki Gammans come to visit. She is from the Bumble Bee conservation Trust. She spoke to us all in Collective Worship about the different types of bees found in Britain, how they help to pollinate our flowers and crops and how vital it is that we help to ensure the survival of our bees. As year 5 and 6 have been writing Non-chronological reports and persuasive writing about bees this week, we also had the opportunity to ask her and her trainee any questions we had about bees, and how we can help them to survive. We all were given stickers, and each year group has a poster so we can all now identify the different bee species around us. If any children want to find out any more information about bees in our local area they can use bumblebeeconservation.org as a good starting place.

On Friday we celebrated World Book Day. We all dressed up as our favourite book character and shared our favourite books with our friends. During the morning we visited three different teachers and we found out their favourite picture books and listened to them- it was a great morning. When we returned to our own class we read through our class picture book and carried out a variety of exciting activities. It was a great day, sharing the joy of reading and how creative we can be!
