Our Learning Behaviours 

We have been talking about what makes us a successful learner.  We have looked at different learning behaviours that show how we are challenging ourselves, such as working together with others, staying focused and never giving up.   This helps us when we are challenging ourselves!



 In Maths lessons we are working on  addition and subtraction, using resources and learnt facts to work out an answer.  We will also be applying this knowledge to help us solve problems. 


Reading - Please read at least 3 times at home each week.  We are also counting how many times we read at home to get our Bronze (50 reads), Silver (100 reads) and Gold (200 reads) awards. 

Spelling - New spellings will be sent home every Friday.  Practise these ready for the spelling test next Friday. Try and practise writing spelling words in a sentence too as this will help you learn them.  Spellings are also displayed on our class notice board in the playground.  Keep practising these spellings and spelling patterns so they can be used confidently when you are writing. 

Maths - Play your Maths game at home and record how you did in your Maths diary. Remember to bring your game back to school on a Thursday. Don't forget to use Mathletics at home too, your log-in details are in your Reading Diary.
