If you would like to take part in our cross-country competition, then you have until this Wednesday!  Today marks the date where we would usually be taking part in our local derby race at Chiddingstone school.

To mark the occasion, the cross-country team would like to challenge all children to run/jog either 1km or 2km (your choice).

The teachers will award raffle tickets to anyone who takes part, and Mrs Murray has a special prize for the best effort and a prize for the cheeriest photo.

All you have to do is: choose your distance, complete the challenge, then post a photo below with a brief description of the course and conditions (eg were there any hills? was it muddy? what was the weather like?) Entries need to be submitted to our parent Facebook page by Wednesday 13th May.

  1. I can label the roots, stem and leaves
  2. I can say what the role of each part is

Reading –

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

Here is the link for the Oxford Owl reading.

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 For every phonics session, please continue to watch the set 3 speed sounds at 10:30 on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above.

 

Guided reading – for those of you in guided reading, please complete the guided reading task on the webpage

11-11.15 2nd Breaktime - have a healthy snack and play.

To be able to interpret picture graphs

  1. I can look at the information on the picture graph and understand what it is showing me
  2. I can read the question and understand what I need to do
  3. I can look at the relevant part of the picture graph to find the answer

 

Following on from our work last week on pictograms, answer the questions about picture graphs that have already been filled in. they get increasingly difficult so go as far as you feel confident. There is a challenge on the final page called ‘mind workout’
