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!
This week in school, we are going to read the story called ‘Pirate Pete’. In the story, Pirate Pete visits several different islands looking for treasure.
Pirates need to be good at counting to make sure they know how much treasure they have in their treasure chests. Pirate Pete finds counting quite hard, can you help him work out how much treasure he has?
To do this task, you might want to use some of your toys or construction to help you count. Remember to listen carefully and count accurately.
Challenge – after you have worked out how much treasure Pirate Pete has, can you write a number sentence to record what you did using the +, - and = symbols?
1. It was a hot, sunny day on Dragon Island and Pirate Pete was digging for treasure. He found 9 gold coins and 6 silver coins. He put them into his empty treasure chest. How many coins does he have? (Answer 9+6=15)
2. Pirate Pete then sailed to Clover Island and found 5 sparkling rubies. He added them to his treasure chest. How much treasure is in the chest now? (Answer 15 + 5 = 20)
3. As he was carrying his treasure chest back onto his ship, Pete fell over and 11 coins fell out. How much treasure is in the chest now? (Answer 20 – 11 = 9)
4. Just then, a cheeky parrot swooped out of a palm tree and took 2 rubies out of the chest! How much treasure is left inside the treasure chest? (Answer 9-2=7)
5. Pirate Pete collected his 11 coins from the ground and put them back into his chest. He counted to see how much treasure he had left. How much does he have? (7+11= 18)
