Mrs Aspinall's Book Recommendation
This is the first in a series of books by the author Eoin Colfer.
'I think that anyone who likes science - fiction, action and also has a good sense of humour, would enjoy this series of books as much as I did!'
Year 5 Jaguars are being encouraged to read and explore different book genres by competing in a class 'Book Battleships' scheme. Children need to read a book from a particular genre and write a book review. Following this, their photo is put onto the 'Book Battleship' grid. Children need to complete four different genres in a row to complete the challenge.
The genre categories are:
Non - fiction
Science - fiction
Story from another culture
Myth or Legend
Please help us in encouraging your child to read something they might not usually be drawn to and participate in 'Book Battleships.'
Information for Parents
Welcome back to the new school year and to the Jaguar's class. I have included some initial information for those parents who could not make the 'Meet the teacher evening'. In the meantime, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Are Thursday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times & that school policy states that all jewellery should be removed.
Should be brought to school and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated, enabling great learning.
Spelling homework sheets are given out each Friday and should be returned, completed, the following Friday.
Your child should know which is their reading day. However, it would be helpful if children can have their reading books and diaries in their bags at all times in case of an interruption to the weekly plan or an opportunity for extra reading occurs. Please ensure that your child is reading out loud to an adult regularly, they are more likely to spot their own mistakes or misunderstandings if they can hear themselves and this activity also allows you to engage them in discussion about their understanding and enjoyment of a book.
We would like to wish the following Jaguars a very happy birthday this term!
