Text for this half term


During this half term we are reading a collection of the Katie Morag stories - by Mairi Hedderwick. 

We will be looking at where they are set, who the characters are and how the stories develop. We will then be writing our own versions based on one of the Katie Morag stories.



       It is recommended that reading takes place every day. Children who are using the Accelerated Reader system will continue to select books from the library at least once a week. These can be read at home and then returned to school when ready to quiz on. (They should be read at least twice)


        For others the following approach will continue this half term:-


             Books can be changed once returned to school. Reading for pleasure books are available to be chosen each day.

All children bring home a book related to their Read, Write Inc work and also have log in details for Oxford Owl to access the books being read in school.

Spellings now follow in line with each groups Read, Write Inc work. Therefore there are not weekly spelling rules - children are learning the sounds, tricky words and words through their lessons. These can be found listed in the front of the Book Bag Books which are brought home each week.


In addition the common exception words are also being taught for years 1 and 2. These can all be found in the back of the jotters.
