Children who are returning to school will be reading all of their books in school with a Teacher or Teaching Assistant as we cannot send materials home. There will be no book bags or reading journals.
For those children who are not returning to school we will allocate 2 books on Bug club on Fridays for the following week.
Remember all the books previously allocated will still be available for the children to re-read and please continue to use any other books you have at home. Children will also enjoy finding words in books you read to them as well as the environment.
Continue to use the bumblebee tricky word mat for children to recognise and read on sight and begin spelling accurately too.
Oxford Reading tree have also released their scheme for you to use at home for free. This is in the national book band colours. You will need to create an account.
Ahoy there Shipmates,
The Night Pirates have stolen a treasure chest with lots of gold coins! All the Night Pirates want to have some of the coins but they need to make sure that it is fair, explain how they can do this with your grownup.
Did you say they should share? That’s right, well done! When you share, everybody gets the same amount and then nobody can be sad.
Can you help the Night Pirates to share the coins in their adventures? You could use the pirate coins you made last week or just use some toys to help you.
1) On Monday, 5 Night Pirates went to Adventure Island. They found 10 gold coins. Can you share the coins so that all the pirates have the same? How many coins does each pirate have?
2) On Tuesday, 6 Night Pirates went Candy Island. They found 18 gold coins. Can you share the coins so that all the pirates have the same? How many gold coins does each pirate have?
3) On Wednesday, 8 Night Pirates went to Dragon Island. They found 16 diamonds. Can you share the diamonds so that all the pirates have the same? How many diamonds does each pirate have?
4) On Thursday, 10 Night Pirates Mermaid Island. They found 20 silver coins. Can you share the coins so that all the pirates have the same? How many coins does each pirate have?
5) On Friday, 4 Night Pirates went to Sleepy Island. They found 5 gold coins. Can you share the coins so that all the pirates have the same? How many coins does each pirate have? Remember it needs to be fair!
(Grownups – we’ve intentionally given an odd number so there will be a remainder. You could have a discussion explaining that sometimes there needs to be a remainder when sharing to keep it fair.)
Find the word next to your favourite animal.
