Welcome to Hawthorn Class
A warm welcome back to you all after half term.
It has been great to see the children so engaged by our first topic. Our new topic is Tremors and the children have already produced some fabulous volcanoes and asked lots of questions.
Stickability quizzes - Maths
After each topic in maths, we have been giving the children quizzes to check their recollection of key aspects. They are a useful tool to make sure that children are still able to use important skills, even when the maths that they are currently learning has moved on.
We will be adding these quizzes once the children have taken them, so that you can support your child with any areas that they are not confident with.
During our guided reading time, we look at extracts from fact and fiction books to practise our comprehension skills. So that we are able to provide the children with a wide range of reading material, we do not often use more than one chapter from a text before moving on. We have decided to share the titles and authors of the books we have been using, in case your child has enjoyed the extract and would like to read on. We hope that you find this useful when choosing potential reading material for your child.
