We have had a wonderful week learning about the importance of bed-time stories and why we read at night time. We have written a recipe for the perfect bed time and have had a fantastic Friday of bookweek, where everybody came dressed as a book character or in their PJ's!
We had the chance to go on a woodland walk, where we studied the work of Andy Goldsworthy. We tried to recreate some of his work using the leaves we found and the fallen tree trunks.
‘High Frequency’ Words
All children in Classes R, 1 and 2 bring home a pack of ‘High Frequency’ words every week on a Friday. Some of these words are very difficult to sound out the normal way so they need to be memorised. It is very important for the children to learn these words as they will come up consistently in reading books. As the children move to Class 1 and 2, the words form the basis of the childrens’ writing.
We would like the children to spend just 5 minutes per day learning the words – you may like to devise a game with the words or write the words on paper to stick around the house!
Please keep the words in your child’s school bag so they can be used in school on a daily basis.
If you have any questions regarding ‘High Frequency’ words (HFW) please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Morrison, the Key Stage 1 Manager.
