w/e 11th December Communication
We have studied two winter poems this week: Winter and Lady Winter's Rap. We have learnt about poetic devices and features of poems, including personification. Winter portrays winter as a dangerous creature whereas Lady Winter's Rap portrays winter like a teenaged-girl with flair.

Well done on handing in your homework every week in the first half term. We are really proud of you! Keep up the hard work and dedication to learning outside of school.
On Tuesdays and Fridays children can choose a new reading book and library book. We quarantine returned books for 72 hours.
Children should read every day at home. The children in our class find 10 - 30 minutes before bed time is a good time to practise this habit.
Grown ups - please can you write in the reading record when you have listened to your child read.
If your child reads at home five or more times a week, and a grown up signs the reading record, they will receive a raffle ticket. Once a half term, a raffle ticket is pulled out and the child will win a prize.
At school, children are heard to read by an adult at least once a fortnight.
On Monday children explore a new spelling rule. The spellings are available on google classroom, our class web page, or a paper copy can be given.
On Friday the children are tested on their spellings.
On Monday and Friday, children can wear PE kits. Often the lesson is outside, so please wear warm layers.
Children are to bring in their own water bottle each day.
Homework is set on Fridays and due in by the following Friday.
It will be set on Google Classroom.
(Paper copies can be made available if you cannot access Google Classroom).
