Visit from a Victorian school teacher
This morning, we were visited by a Victorian school teacher, Mrs Jenkins. She was very strict! We went through our daily drills, practiced our spellings and time tables and learnt about the different games and punishments.
All of us said that we prefer school now!
Using Green screening, we created videos to teach other people about Victorian rich and poor houses.
As part of our story writing in English, we have been learning about Welsh coal mines. In pairs, we created Popplets describing our 5 senses if we were in a mine.
Year 5 and 6 are going to be taking part in the accelerated reading scheme, they will be giving 20 minute independent reading time every day. AR is a computer program that helps to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.
PE will be every Wednesday with Mrs O'Brien. Please make sure:
We will regularly provide your children with a reading book from our bug club library which is levelled correctly for their reading ability. They will also have a home/school reader record, you can make a comment in the journal that refers to how well your child has read the book (including errors made/parts they struggled with), how confident their reading was and whether or not they enjoyed the text. We ask that you aim to listen to your child read 3 times a week to accompany the various reading activities we provide in school. In addition to this children should continue to use Active learn Bug club for online reading.
