Language, Literacy & Communicaton
Our genre focus for this half term is;
* IDL *
Each day, children access the IDL computer programme, which supports the development of reading and spelling skills. The programme adapts as children develop their skills, so it ensures that it is always working at the appropriate level for them.
* Bug Club *
Each day, children log into Bug Club to access reading books which have been allocated to them at school, according to their reading levels.
Bug Club is a whole school reading programme that combines books with an online reading world, filled with favourite characters, to hook children into a lifelong love of books and to help you to become confident young readers.
* Guided Reading / Comprehension *
As a class, we will explore extracts from our class text. Children will ask and answer questions and take part in a variety of activities to encourage higher level skill development.
* Spelling *
Children will be given opportunities to improve their understanding of spelling patterns via Spell Blast. Spell blast encourages children to learn spellings whilst playing and competing against each other. As they progress through the levels, the words automatically adjust to their ability so that they never find them too easy or too difficult.
Children will also be given opportunities to look through their classwork, and to identify and correct any spelling errors.
* Handwriting & Presentation *
Children are encouraged to always present their work to a high standard.
