Badgers 1/2 2022 - 2023
Welcome to the Brilliant Badgers!
Summer Term 1
My email is Lesley.email@example.com
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed lots of Easter eggs.
This term, we are focusing on Living things and their habitats in science. Our geography unit is Castles and the children will be exploring Place Knowledge and Maps. We are also hoping to visit Lincoln Castle but this is yet to be confirmed. Owl Babies is the focus of our book study in English - a favourite amongst everyone!
Your child is able to choose a book from the school library and bring it home to share with you. These books are reading for pleasure with or by you to encourage a love of reading. Please return the book on a Monday.
School Reading Books and Book Bags
Book bags need to be in school daily with your child’s reading book and reading record. Please sign your child’s reading record whenever they read at home, it may be their book, a set of instructions, recipes, road signs, supermarket labels etc. Your child has also received their own Teach Your Monster to Read Log in and Password to use at home if you are able (Computers and Laptops have free access, or the app costs £4.99 for mobiles and tablets). They also have access to school Laptops to be able to access the program at school). You may also wish to use Oxford Owl ebooks. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
In order to support children’s reading whilst at home, when your child has completed a book, there are some activities they could do to support their comprehension skills for example, design a new front cover, write a book review, write a different ending to the story, write questions or even write their own questions for another member of the family to answer after they too have read the book. Spot compound words and make a list or even add some of their own.
PE will take place each Tuesday and Thursday. This will be outdoors and therefore, please ensure your child has the appropriately named PE Kit. Your child needs to come to school in their PE clothes.
