Yellow Class - Spring Term 2
Read Write Inc: Children will be assessed upon returning to school and put into reading ability groups. Pupils will do a speed sound lesson each day and read a text three times on separate occasions. The more frequently your child reads at home, the quicker they will progress through the Read, Write, Inc levels and become a fluent reader. Pupils are assessed every six weeks or more frequently if we feel they need moving on to the next level.

We will explore her books and gather information about the author before writing our very own information book about her. We will then move onto our classic narrative and poetry unit based on the story Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. Please help your child at home by reminding them to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and also remind them to check that their sentences make sense by practicing them orally.
