"What is life like in France?"

Children are expected to read every day, for at least 10 minutes; this will be accompanied by a comprehension question. This will enable the children to develop their reading as well as their comprehension skills. We encourage the children to read 4 days a week in order to gain a ticket to read and be entered in to the prize draw every Friday. In Ganymede class we have high expectations for presentation, this is expected to continue in their homework and reading journals.
Children can also access reading eggs to read texts and play reading related games to develop their reading skills. As they complete these activities they earn golden eggs which they can use in 'The Mall' and to play different games. The link to Reading Eggs is at the bottom of this page.
The children's spelling homework links with the spellings they will have been learning at school. They will need to recall the spelling rules for that week to be successful in learning new words.
They can also go onto Spellodrome (please see the link below) to practise spelling rules that they have covered this year.
Every Friday, the children will be set several pieces of Mathletics homework which will complement the learning they have done during the week. If the children cannot access Mathletics at home, they can use our Computer Room during lunchtime.
We've had a royal start to the term and the children have fully immersed themselves in their holiday challenge. The research and time spent to make posters has been excellent|! The posters will be displayed in the corridor by Ganymede and Titan's classrooms. The children have thought of interesting questions that they would like answered through out the topic.
Week beginning June 25th the children will be transported to carnival season in South America. They will create art & DT pieces influenced by the carnival decoration, along with learning samba dancing and will take part in a drumming workshop.
