MISS DIXON'S

USEFUL TIPS

  • Reading every night will help you to grow into a super reader! Talk about what you've read with your parent or loved one and discuss what you think might happen next, the meaning of new words and how you can relate to the story. Don't just read your school reading book but read books from home or the library, newspapers, non-fiction books and poems. Think about what the characters are like and if they are similar to other characters you've read about in other books. Compare similarities between the books by the same author and think about the illustrations and what they show. 

  • Find time in the day to count in 2s, 5s and 10s and see how quick you can do it. 

  • Increase your independence by getting dressed on your own and helping out with jobs around the house. 

  • Complete your daily work set on Google Classroom and upload it for me to view. This shows that you are dedicated to your learning and that you are working hard at home.

  • Talk about how you are feeling. It is a difficult time for us all and we need to find the time to speak about how we are feeling and remember that sometimes we might have a bad day and that is ok.

  • It is ok to make mistakes..... but we must remember to try and make it better with our fresh start- because every day is a new day!

THEME

In Theme, we have been looking at explorers and inventions.

We have looked closely at the Wright brothers, who invented the aeroplane.

We had the task of using materials and resources from home, including recycling to create our own aeroplanes.

ENGLISH

In our English lessons, we will be applying our phonics knowledge to our work. We will be developing our spelling, punctuation and grammar skills too. This term, we will be looking at nouns, adjectives and verbs and using a range of interesting words in our writing. 

SCIENCE

In Science, we have been looking at plants. 

We have watched videos online to further our learning and each week, we are working hard to further our knowledge.

We have been finding out…

  • How to plant

  • The different types of plants that grow in the wild

  • The difference between deciduous and evergreen trees

  • The parts of trees and plants

  • Changes in different plants 

R.E.

In RE, we are exploring Islam as a faith. We have been looking at the five pillars of Islam, thinking about the religious ways and practices for a Muslim and relating what we’ve learnt to our own lives.
