This week in Dexter class

Welcome back! We would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

This week, we will be refreshing our confidence with reading and writing the digraphs sh, ch, th, nk, ng, ai and ee. It has been lovely to see so many children have continued reading over the holiday - it has really made a difference to their confidence and fluency.

In maths, we will be starting a unit called 'Alive in Five' where we will better understand the composition and comparison of numbers. We will be using our reasoning skills to answer tricky questions that involve the application of our understanding of bonds to 5, ordering numbers, and identifying which number is more or less/fewer and by how many.

In English, Language and Communication, we will be reading Six Dinner Sid by Inga Moore. This is a lovely story about a cat which visits 6 different houses, the residents of which all believe him to be their cat! This will prompt work on animal care over the next few weeks.

In RE, we will be exploring the Christian Value of Trust and talking about who we trust and why, the importance of being trustworthy, and how Christian faith demonstrates the trust people have in God.

We will not be welly walking this week, though would be grateful if you could ensure that all children have correctly fitting wellies and waterproofs in school as soon as possible, please.
